Guns N' Roses V

 

A brilliant name. Same concept as Led Zeppelin II, III, etc. Except, Guns N' Roses have not previously numbered their studio LPs. The reason the name is brilliant, is because it allows Axl to further canonize Chinese Democracy, with Slash and Duff being made to give a seal of approval to the album. AFD, UYI I/II, and CD are full albums one through four of original material. Naming the new album V allows Axl to group CD in with the other three 'classic' albums.

 

Given that this is Slash and Duff painting over NU-GNR, Ecce Homo would be a perfect cover. The painting is infamous, because an amateur painter attempted to restore it by painting over it, and ruined the work of art. Am I insinuating Slash replacing Bumblefoot's parts is the equivalent of that? Not exactly. But if you're Axl, and you made Slash release Absurd as the first single together in nearly 30 years, you probably appreciate that kind of symbolism in your work. At this point, Axl is not a musician. He is a performance artist. Like Andy Kaufman.

The physical representation of the song 'Absurd'.
