Isn’t it funny that Slash used Josh as his drummer on the Slash 2010 album, probably knowing very well that Axl had used him for the Chinese Democracy sessions.
And as for the suggestion of him being brought out to play for the 2016 reunion tour? I’d welcome that for sure, the guy is an absolute monster drummer!
Would've been great, but isn't Freese more of a session drummer than a live performer?

Sometimes for albums, the codes run as a numerical sequence (I think this happened with CD and other GN'R releases), so this could imply that an entire album has been handed over, and that Hard Skool is 11 tracks after Absurd on the album. Nothing is registered on the numbers in between, but there are other tracks for other artists before and after these codes.
Of course, it might mean nothing
Hopefully means something. How did you find this?
The ISRC is generally found on streaming sites, or song directory sites. It doesn't conclusively mean anything, I think Better had a slightly earlier reference to the rest of CD, but if the band have submitted a batch of songs, they can follow a sequence that matches the tracklist
That kinda suggests that at one point they envisaged Better being a single.
Which it should have been. Their approach to the CD singles was nonsensical. Chinese Democracy with that extended intro and no radio edit, and Street of Dreams?
It should've been Better straight out the gate, and TWAT for that "November Rain epic" vibe (and to prove that the CD-era guitarists could throw down when it came to an epic Slash-style guitar solo).

I was at that Dublin 2010 show. Well, a bit of it. That was the one where they were on late, the idiots running the venue let people take bottles into the floor area, and some idiots threw those bottles at the stage.
Axl stormed off in a huff, the crowd looked like it was getting a bit St. Louis, so I decided to bail.
And then Axl came back out on the stage and performed the entire show standing in one spot, he was that pissed off. And gave one of his best vocal performances as a result.

Part of me, the positive part, thinks these two songs and EP could be LLAS part deux. A couple of tracks from a prior band…knock knock Hollywood Rose…knock knock Axl’s Orchestra…then a new album from the current band…which includes remaining big guns from Chinese plus fully original songs. I am not buying that these two new tracks are the end and it will be a 100% second half Chinese.
I also think it may come by year end.
Interesting thought. It does seem logical, doesn't it? Reworking some Chinese leftovers is a quick way to get some tracks out there while you crack on with a new album, keeps the fans sated etc etc.
