  1. Slash should do another album with guest singers, or more "weird" stuff like the Universal Monsters soundtrack. A blues album/EP would be interesting, even if it's mostly instrumental stuff. SMKC has run its course and should be retired. After their last album, I expected this album to be dull and generic but these singles have been even worse than I imagined.
  2. The solo on Perhaps sounds more like The Blues than it does Catcher.
  3. Why would Brian have to be taught the chords? Because he'd never heard the song before, you dumbass. If Brian or someone from those sessions confirms that Perhaps was the other song, I'll be surprised, but I'll admit I'm wrong. Til then, I'm gonna assume it's Robin on Perhaps.
  4. Silkworms > Absurd. Silkworms is still a bottom-tier GNR song but Absurd is a complete clusterfuck. Slash sounds fine on the Hardschool single. He didn't turn it into some great song, but it's not bad. The drums were the low point of the single tbh, they're so simplified compared to the demo and don't drive the song at all.
  5. Even without Tommy mentioning that Brian played on Rhiad, the solo on Perhaps does sound more like Robin. I guess there's no way to know for sure, but I don't know why people keep insisting Brian plays on Perhaps when it's been clarified, by the guy who taught Brian the chords, that Rhiad was the 3rd song.
  6. It's kinda like Lies 2 in that it's got studio and live songs (I know LLAS wasn't actually live) but Absurd and Hardschool are the complete opposite of the Lies songs in sound, quality and recording method. Wichita Lineman has been one of the better songs in their set for the last few years, and it's just a simple acoustic song that they all sound pretty good on. Axl could sing in his natural voice and Slash wouldn't have as many opportunities to randomly noodle through the solos.
  7. Kinda depends what it is. If it's Axl sounding just as bad as Myles over bland SMKC riffs, then I'm not interested. I'd definitely prefer re-hashed CD leftovers over that. If they got Izzy back and wrote a full-length acoustic record like Lies? Fuck yea. Maybe throw Wichita Lineman and 1 or 2 Duff songs in there to extend the album a bit, but even just a few mellow acoustic tunes would be better than any copy/paste album that Caram could put together.
  8. I'm kind of expecting them to hype the Hard Skool vinyl/EP leading up to the next tour, and then not even attempt it live. Absurd will be the only new song they continue playing regularly, because Axl can just shout the lyrics. Maybe they'll play Hard Skool a couple times near the end of the tour, so they'll have a live recording to tack onto whatever the next "EP" is.
  9. Yea, they do look like 12". But hey, you also get a Nightrain pin (only one though, unless you want to spend an extra $45) and a sticker.
  10. It's not even a 12" single, it's just a different version of the 7" single with an extra track
  11. The solo on Perhaps sounds more like Robin to me. I think the original quote from Brian May was that he played on "2.5 or 3 songs", the "half" part was probably just some rhythm parts on Rhiad, as opposed to the lead parts on Atlas and Catcher.
  12. No, it's likely Robin. Atlas, Catcher and Rhiad were the songs he did.
  13. Pele's repetitiveness is a bit annoying but it's entertaining seeing people get worked up over his posts. Half the people there want him banned ffs
  14. No, Perhaps is piano-driven and has a cool solo from Robin. SOG is rougher and kinda has an 'industrial' vibe that people described CD songs as having in the late 90s.
  15. They'll spend most of the year promoting Ain't Goin' Down and the UYI box set.
