#1 Re: Guns N' Roses » UYI Box tracklist unveiled? » 10 days ago
I do wonder if the AFD and UYI boxes were about throwing former members a bone. I mean, the money Axl/Slash/Duff get from it is probably negligible compared to touring. But for guys like Matt, Izzy, Adler, and whoever else it may be meaningful.
Hell, to that end maybe Axl is reworking CD material like HS and Absurd to throw a bone to Tommy, Robin, Freese et al. They leave them on the credits.

I don’t understand Scott’s beef with Matt. Matt always sang backing vocals at VR shows, right from the beginning. I thought he added some really nice harmonies when he did it too. I think Scott was just getting paranoid towards the end of their run.
As for the vocals, while it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, I don’t think they are terrible by any means. Matt even said that he was trying to channel Lemmy with his voice, after Lemmy heard the demo and said he wanted to sing on the track.
I also feel like with the VR split, these songs are just sitting around gathering dust, because everyone else moved on and has no intention of revisiting this stuff. So if Matt wants to put them out, good for him.
On a similar sentiment, I would hope Tommy is able to put out Goin Down at some point. I love the demo.

When did they register it?
Sorum has been using the brand name Kings of Chaos for his all-stars live act since around 2012. On occasion Slash and Gilby have been in the band but not always, they use different people each tour.
He's said before he would get around to doing originals too but before this it only amounted to a deep purple demo.
As for this song, are you asking when it was recorded? Unknown...but I notice the credits include Dave Kushner so I would speculate it's an old Velvet Revolver demo reworked by Matt.
This would make sense as we know they had quite a few songs kicking around unfinished, some of which eventually moved into other projects (eg Ghost on the Slash album). The general feel of it also sounds a lot like a VR track to me.
Interesting…didn’t know that about Ghost. Hard to imagine that as a VR track. Any idea where that tidbit came from?

I'm really hoping we hear something that is completely new to us in terms of the title, music, and vocals. That would be a pleasant surprise.
Also just realised something about Slash's storytelling that makes no sense. He said they reworked all these songs during the COVID lockdown period... they were soundchecking Hard Skool before lockdown. We have the audio, we have the setlist photos. They also had OMG on the setlist in the 2018.
Not to mention confirmation Slash was recording at Axl's home studio in April 2019. He likely doesn't give much of a shit about this material.
Haha imagine if one of the “epics” is a reworked OMG…
