I actually liked some of his tunes on The Sea, but this is just embarrassing. The lyrics, the trying too hard, the trying to imitate Scott's phrasing, the video... Back when VR broke up and Scott seemed to clash with Matt the most, Scott complaint about Matt's ego and desire to sing throughout all the songs. Well, who would have a guessed that the first VR song post-Scott would have Matt on lead vocals 10

Am I the only one who really liked Circus Maximus from the leaks?

No you're not. I really love that piece and hope it has become Ides Of March or se7en - so that there's a chance we'll one day get to hear it.

I find that kinda music interesting but sort of non functional for a rock band, like it would be cool music to make as an instrumental for some type of art film or something...but in my head I dunno how you can go to a show and listen to like SCOM then that one.

Well going from I Wanna Be Your Dog to Absurd isn't quite a smooth genre transition either and they still do it...

#4 Re: Guns N' Roses » SOG single coming? » 9 weeks ago

My guess is that they are probably in the system since they uploaded Absurd & Hard School. More and more songs being found probably will have something do with the search behavior. The next single will be the updated November Rain and that will carry them through to the end of the year and tour.

They should have gone with Franky Perez and stopped playing GN'R songs. Sure losing Scott was a major setback, but with Perez they could have released new stuff without drama and started building up their audience again.

The songs Kushner eventually released with Perez that I assume were intended for VR sounded promising...

Nah, Perez is – with the best will in the world – a middle-tier talent. Scott had incredible stage presence, charisma to burn and a lyrical songwriting touch. It takes something special to follow that up, and I think the VR guys realised that the people they were auditioning didn't measure up. Or if they did (Chester, etc) they were already in major bands and weren't available.

Oh don't get me wrong - none of these candidates were on par with Scott. But I would have preferred a world with VR and a "good enough" singer to the endless Slash w/ Myles Kenndy boredom.

#8 Re: Guns N' Roses » No new single this year? » 14 weeks ago

I think at this point we're so starved for something new that we would gladly take a studio version of Witchita Lineman as a new single with live versions of those unnecessary AC/DC covers as B-Sides

#9 Re: Guns N' Roses » Ain't Going Down history? » 14 weeks ago

That's an interesting sequence of the songs on the list. Makes me wonder when they decided what song would go on which album and why...

We can exclude all fan speculation and theories and  there's still evidence...

Both Weiland and Halfin said it was on like Donkey Kong. This wasn't said with hindsight...they said it summer/fall 2005.

There was also rumblings of Download 2006 being headlined by a reunited GNR.

There was also that show the Stones wanted a reunited GNR to open for....which is conveniently dropped after we find out it's new GNR.

Various dots connected by fans...

Odd timing of the canceled 2 disc GH.

The logos/banners promoting 2006 tour revolved around old band photos/logos.

The fact that in the weeks leading up to Hammerstein, the two slots that Slash and Duff would be in are conveniently open til the last second.

I also don't think Izzy being on standby is a coincidence either. Whatever went down between Slash, Duff, and Axl didn't involve him.

You do raise some very interesting points here. Especially the two open slots for Hammerstein is a very intriguing theory. But probably a bit of a stretch. I think Tommy was just mad and initially hadn't wanted to be there because of the last minute addition of Bumblefoot. He was the musical director of the band and probably worked hard on making the Robin/Richard version work.

I don't see a hybrid reunion with Slash, Robin & Richard + Duff instead of Tommy back then.

Also didn't Axl's press release mention Slash calling Duff "spineless"? Makes me wonder if it was only Slash aiming for that reunion back then and Duff wanted to stay with Scott at that point
