#1 Re: Guns N' Roses » UYI Box set coming 2022 » 75 weeks ago

we need footage! basically every show from this era was recorded and it's just sitting around gathering dust.

new soundboard audio is cool, but give us the fucking footage! we already have the mates rehearsals, and axl's advance copy. what more could exist other than ycbm with adler on drums? tracks from the original sessions?

cautiously optimistic.

I dug it, but this should have been the official release back in September.  Also kind of surprised they released a video with guns, fires and explosions in a school.

yeah, and the video dropped right after a school shooting in michigan. horrible timing. the entire video is covered with splashes of blood.

not a fan of these lyric videos at all. the vocals are so fast-paced in this song that the lyrics can't even keep up. 14

i've seen several fan-made videos that use live footage, and they destroy this thing.

#3 Re: Guns N' Roses » Hardschool single coming September 24th. » 87 weeks ago

thoughts after listening to it once while hungover and walking the dog:

- duff's bass intro is AWESOME
- slash was always the key sound missing from gn'r
- the school bell at the beginning is corny as shit
- artwork is even worse (the S meme on there, seriously?)
- axl's vocals are kinda weird, but i'll get used to it
- breakdown is awesome, really reminds me of the illusions

overall, it kicks ass. needs an actual music video with live shots of the band. get this thing out there!

all i really want is the perfect crime dvd and the version of you could be mine with adler. we already have instrumentals, different versions of the songs, and songs that didn't make the cut... what else could they include in this?

the cajun turkey, salami and hot pepper cheese on a sub is unbelievable. my go to for a hangover the next working. get drunk, wrap it in foil, and wake up the next day to a heavenly sandwich.

Do any bands release singles on vinyl these days? Like any?

I only ever see full length releases on vinyl nowadays.

no way gn'r goes through all the trouble of pressing vinyl in 2021 just to get us absurd.

album confirmed!

#7 Re: Guns N' Roses » GNR Release 'Absurd' Single » 91 weeks ago

it sounds like fernando may have also confirmed a release for hard school. it's a weird exchange: … nt-4893699

1 hour ago, Stay.Of.Execution said:
A single, a video, some advertisement, maybe an interview (I know, wild stuff).

to which fernando replied:

Sorry, I was talking about your signature.
But, yes, yes and maybe yes?

so maybe a single, a video, some ads, and possibly even an interview?

its possible he was just confused and thought the poster was talking about absurd.

how on earth does quick song sound like smells like teen spirit?

How about grab some acoustic guitars and create some stripped down songs. No samples, effects etc and possibly easier on Axls voice.

i often wonder if the current lineup has ever sat in a room with acoustic guitars. that is what made gn'r magic - they wrote paradise city on acoustics while riding around in the tour bus. surely, this situation has presented itself over the past 5 years.

i'd be totally fine with a re-worked cd2 with slash and duff, but a new song from them would be an absolute treat to hear.

if axl has shown stuff to slash and duff, surely slash and duff have played stuff for axl?

#10 Re: Guns N' Roses » When do we hear Hardskool? » 93 weeks ago

1. hard school (3:56)
2. absurd (3:23)
3. quick song (4:15)
4. soul monster (5:48)
5. atlas shrugged (4:19)
6. perhaps (3:51)
7. oklahoma (4:20)
8. d-tune (5:25)
9. the general (5 mins? who knows)

according to my maths, that's 40 minutes, 17 seconds. lots of ways to beef it up:

state of grace? kinda dated, but anything is on the table when absurd is the single.
seven? brain is still in the band, and it's his song. it also has beltrami orchestration that makes it a sunken cost otherwise.
down by the ocean? an izzy song would give the album that classic gn'r feel, and they probably wouldn't even have to pay him.

or just round it off with studio versions of wichita lineman, the seeker and couple duff covers?
