  1. Honestly this has to be the most uninspired song Slash has put out under the SMKC banner
  2. Lmao this is even worse than The River Is Rising.
  3. It's impossible to replicate it live without numerous backing tracks, even for AFD stuff. Every single GNR track from all eras has Axl doing 4-5 vocals at once, at least 3 guitar tracks and sometimes more than that, and there are some songs on AFD/UYI where I'm pretty sure there's an extra bass in some parts. They could be as sober and as on top of their game as possible and they'd never be able to replicate it 1:1. It is what it is.
  4. He looked healthy and fit, yes. 1992 that dude was lean as hell and muscled up. 2006 he had middle age spread and looked great for his age, but he was not ripped, he didn't have abs at all. No need to exaggerate how in shape he was.
  5. Axl was neither ripped nor in 1992 shape in 2006-2007. He was in 40 year old who works out a bit a couple days a week maybe if he feels like it but is bursting with coke energy shape.
  6. I believe Shackler's Revenge is the last thing he put vocals to, with the possible exception of the TIL remix which SOUNDS like 2010 era voice but could be from pretty much anytime between 2004 and whenever it leaked out.
  7. Really both Absurd and Hard SKOOL sound more like they're mixed by whoever does the SMKC albums. Everything super loud, everything way up front, everything super compressed, no dynamics at all. Which is just the standard for rock music for like 20 years now. The previous SMKC album was so fucking loud and squished it was almost comical.
  8. I don't think Hardschool/Absurd have been AFDified at all. It's just basic hard left, hard right, fills and leads straight up the middle. That's just the most basic rock set up there is. If you think it's AFD style because there aren't 4 guitar parts layered on each side, lol. There's still random beeps and boops and synths and shit in both songs they just aren't as prominent as they are in previous versions.
  9. The whole band got COVID during the recording of this album
  10. Probably because the title never got leaked or mentioned and Ron probably didn't have a swing at it so it never came up
  11. I absolutely believe the first disc of the Village stuff would have had a solid 5-6 radio hits if it had been released in 2000-2002.
  12. Still shaking my head at how terrible this song is.
  13. It's hilarious that he actually admits this after years of saying he's been writing new Guns material in every interview
  14. Lol at how almost embarrassed Myles looks for the entirety of the video
  15. Lmao that sounds even more multiple mismatched songs smashed together than anything on CD or Village leaks
  16. I saw a story in Google News about GNR is prepping the first full album (not EP) in 28 years with Slash and Duff but when it updated the story vanished and I've been unable to find it or where it was from since.
  17. He looks fine for a 60 year old rock star who spent years boozing and doing heroin/coke tbh. There have definitely been different periods where he looked flat out unwell. I don't think that pic or really any of the shows this year have been that. 2020 he looked unwell and unhealthy. I don't know why anyone gives a shit about his hair, though. Almost every man alive will have thinning hair by 60 and his hair was visibly thin 30 years ago. He can do stuff about the fat, not really much to do about hair going beyond implants and wigs, which is far more lol and sad than a dude just accepting his hair is going.
  18. Most classic rock stations don't play new stuff from the bands they play 24/7 anyway. Are there even modern rock radio stations on actual terrestrial radio?
  19. I was legit thinking the other day that Hard School lyrics probably started as yabba dabba doo
  20. I wonder if they'll continue to put out a new single a month or if they're really just sticking to Silkworms and Hardschool
  21. His technique is the same as 2002. Just without any power, control, or stamina.
