    So it’s no 10 then ?

    But YCBM is them firing on all cylinders. And thank Christ we got the Matt sorum intro and not the Steven Adler one which he played a few years ago and it didn't fit and would have hurt the song.

    Oh no it comes in 10th place.

    My Top 10 goes as follows.

    Locomotive (Complicity)
    Coma
    Breakdown
    There Was A Time
    Rocket Queen
    Nightrain
    Don't Damn Me
    You're Crazy (GN'R Lies version)
    Paradise City
    You Could Be Mine

    Where can I find Alder's intro I've always believed Alder would of suited the song better due to his behind the beat groove style of drumming but it could be a case of never meet your hero's

    Ask and you shall receive. I know I said it would hurt the song, but I need to change that because hurt may have been a bit harsh. The intro is different but not massively different but I watched after years of hearing the Matt sorum version.

    Interesting and varied list but I suppose us die hard fans won’t go for the songs the casual fans would know and like. I like that breakdown and locomotive are there as I’d have them on my top ten list.

    My list would be not in order.

    Coma
    Estranged
    Locomotive
    Breakdown
    You could be mine
    Double talkin jive,
    It’s so easy
    Paradise city
    You’re crazy(lies version)
    Mr brownstone

    That’s not to say I dislike any song and that list could and does change regularly depending on my mood and if I’ve listened to a particular album recently.

    So as we approach the 30th anniversary of the riot in St. Louis on July 2nd, I’ve been rewatching any news reporting and nearly 30 minutes of footage filmed by Robert John and watching a documentary on it and obviously 30 years after the fact, it’s easy to say it wasn’t as clear cut as it was made out at the time.

    There’s also some massively baffling recounting of the incident, including slash in his book having this completely at odds version of events which bar no resemblance to what was caught on camera. Slash says he stayed on stage while Axl left when it’s clear slash and the band left with Axl.

    There is a claim by the manager of the venue that he say Axl go into the dressing room and “close the door and start throwing things through walls”, but he’s the only person that I can find who who says that. That manager also said the house lights where brought up after Axl entered his dressing room, but there is footage, again from Robert John of the band standing off stage(including Axl) with the house lights up, and securing on stage trying to stop the fans getting on stage, so that doesn’t add up.

    I mean yes Axl could have acted differently, as he says to kurt loder in an interview, but as axl says, nobody was handling anything at that point in the show. Maybe I’ve not found it but did the fans who ripped up seats and launched them at the stage get held accountable for the damage they caused ? Again, axl didn’t handle it perfectly but his failings weren’t the only people who failed to live up to their end of an agreement to have a peaceful show.

    Thirty years ago tonight Axl went into the crowd.

    To think, the show ALMOST went off without a hitch....

    Yeah almost. I think it was slash who said by the time the whole jumping off stage happened, they’d done an hour and an half or near enough to it, which was what the band was apparently contracted to do. The story about izzy’s amp being found at the bus stop was funny.

    So team Brazil the alleged management have gone after a GNR fan podcast and banned members who apparently want to go on the podcast. I wouldn’t let GNR management look after my cat ffs.

    And Matt sorum and his wife had a baby girl which I suppose falls under GNR news.

    happy 34th birthday to AFD from July 21st. And happy 56th birthday to Slash from well yesterday given its past midnight here in Ireland.

    The lads had their first show since the show in Mexico in March 2020 and it doesn’t seem axls voice is any worse or better than the last time. I’m only going on videos where it starts off good and then gets poor on the songs he shouldn’t be singing. There was awful technical difficulties with the his microphone cutting out on serval songs. It was YCBM in 1990 in Rio except on several songs.

    In case anyone hasn't seen it, they played Silkworms in Boston last night, has been retitled Absurd.. Which in itself feels like a working title.


    Even though the song is 2 decades old.



  • #2


    Yeah saw that. It also seems the technical issues from the previous show were fixed and axl sounded okayish.



  • #2


    And the song now called Absurd has been released as a single.it’s on Spotify and Apple Music. This kind of feels like what a normal band would do. I’m confused.



  • #2


    I can't believe they've actually released Silkworms as a single. The song is pure garbage.

    The song has been a bit of a joke for 20 years. That and Eye on You



  • #2


    I listened to it this morning and I’ve listened to it once this evening and the only thing that may be helping me like it kind of, is the fact it’s been years since I’ve listened to silkworms so while I recognised it, it’s been long enough that it’s not like any of the well known songs where my mind is set on it.

    New song is meh

    Not fussed about new music from GnR tbh



  • #2


    The new song is grand. I like it. There could be more happening (more lyrics, a few different parts, etc). It's just cool to hear 'new' stuff to be honesht. I'd like to hear 'Jackie Chan/Hard School' live. Hopefully it's in the pipeline.

    Slash and Myles have a new album due in 2022 so I'd presuming its reworked Chinese Democracy stuff we can expect from GNR for the next while.



  • #2


    It wasn't what I expected to be Axl, Duff, and Slash's first new track together, but it grows on you after a few spins.

    Either way whatever they do next, hopefully it'll be a mix of whatever the hell Axl has in his mythical vault, with a several new originals.

    Even though it’s past midnight here in Ireland, it’s the 17th of September which is thirty years since the double albums were released.
