I revisited that album recently.  I like it just fine.  If it had just come out in a timely manner like a regular record...I dare say it was a very fine album.

I still love the album. Listen to it nearly everytime I drive and make sure to play a track or two anytime I'm in a pub...which isn't that often anymore.

It's funny, for all the shit the album gets, the live shows I went to in 2011 and 2012 had a lot of people singing along to songs like "Better" and "This I Love." I think it was more well received than people really know.

Well, you were at a Guns N' Roses concert and that would be the audience that would receive those songs well, but at the show I went to last year, the crowd figuratively sat on their hands for the Chinese Democracy songs, except the title track, which got the benefit of the doubt because it was the opener.

That was the problem with the album. It's a really solid album, but with the long delay and all the hype it had to be the next coming of the one of the greatest albums ever for it to feel like it was worth the wait.

Chinese Democracy is pretty damn good.  Even the rough cuts that came out before the actual album were damn good as well.

That's the thing, it was several different shows. But hell, that may just be the way I choose to remember them...

JAxl, let's not go overboard with the GNR stuff here.  I know you have three and half years to make up for but nobody even posts in this folder anymore so it'll stand out even more and lead to renewed hostility on TSM towards this band, which I will feel compelled to reply to, which if all goes as it did on the old board will create bitter feelings in a few posters who feel that my defense of a band I like was in fact an attack on them and their musical tastes. 

That said, did they need to add another Who cover to their shows?  The one I went to last year had Tommy Stinson singing My Generation, immediately followed by Dizzy playing a solo piano version of Baba O'Riley.  This is overkill.  We don't need any more Who covers period, let alone by a band that already performs two.

Haha np. Just thought this would be of some interest. There's not much to talk about re: the band anyways. Looks like they'll continue to tour. Releasing more music doesn't seem to be too high of a priority.

That's the one thing about these new GnR tours.  For all the complaints about how late they've gone on, etc. they've never skimped on the setlist.  They've never been a band that goes on for an hour and leaves.  Some people don't like all the various solos, but it's kind of a necessary evil that's allowed Axl to go for 20+ songs a night.

I love when songs you never hear on the radio pop on.  I would tell a story about Cry Me A River by Justin Timberlake coming on a few days ago...but this is a rock thread...so that didn't happen.

I bought the single for Civil War on cassette back in the day for $1 at a flea market. I wore that tape out. It became my favorite GnR song and I still love it to this day. Great, underrated track.

Having grown up sheltered from Hard Rock, I missed out on Guns N Roses heyday.  When I was 18 and driving my own vehicle (1999), I caught "November Rain" on the local rock channel for the first time and it was the most amazing thing I had ever heard.  That was my gateway to GNR.

Hearing Rocket Queen on the radio a few years back was quite the surprise and awesome.

I also heard "There Was A Time" once right after Democracy was released....at 4:45 AM.

Anyways, here's hoping for a summer US tour!

I've never heard anything but the choice GnR hits on the radio, and I never listen to the radio anymore.  But I always marked out when Paradise City played on the classic rock station.

http://www.rttnews.com/2053767/guns-n-roses-join-governor-s-ball-lineup.aspx?type=rk

Guns N' Roses have been added to the lineup for this summer's Governor's Ball Music Festival in New York City. The rock legends join a growing lineup set to take over New York's Randall's Island on June 7-9.

This year Axl and company will take the stage alongside Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Animal Collective, the Avett Brothers, the xx, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Feist, Death From Above 1979 and Crystal Castles.

It will be just the second U.S. appearance for GNR outside of their Las Vegas residency last year. They also made a stop at the annual Bridge School benefit in October.

The band hits the road Down Under with ZZ Top next month.

I made some p. bad posts in this thread and if there is a reunion we should have a new one.



There are reports that this video is running in theaters before showings of Star Wars. I have no idea why they would do that, and it seems like a crazy waste of money. So it's quite in character for Axl.

Rumor has it that the reunion would consist of Axl, Slash, Duff and Dizzy but no Izzy, Adler or Sorum. Rather, current members Richard Fortus and Frank Ferrer would fill the rhythm guitar and drums slots respectively. If true, I'm not surprised that Izzy won't be taking part, since he hasn't toured in over 20 years (though I would expect occasional guest appearances like those he made with new-GnR in 2006 and 2012). And Axl has always hated Matt Sorum and has denigrated his musicianship over the years, but then again he's made similar comments about Slash. But Steven is going to be so crushed. :( Oddly enough, this wouldn't be the first time Fortus and Ferrer have been the ringers in a reunion, as they were both members of Love Spit Love, the band formed by Richard and Tim Butler of the Psychedelic Furs after that band broke up, and then when the Furs "reformed" a few years later, it was just the lineup of Love Spit Love plus one other authentic Fur. How comical.

Finally, there is heavy speculation that this reconstituted GnR will be a Coachella headliner this year. If so, the announcement will be on January 6th. Can't wait to beat.

Local radio station more or less confirmed Slash and Duff returning.

I'm not gonna believe it until I see them onstage together. I'm just as excited as the next person but it wouldn't totally surprise me if this turns into a Van Halen 1996 situation.

This turned out to be correct, except they also have a new second keyboard player...a woman. :o



There's very little footage due to a camera/phone ban, but it happened. Axl doesn't sound too good, but I'm still going to spend way too much money to see them at Metlife on July 23rd.

I saw that they had presale tickets up today so I checked to see what it looked like for the Heinz Field show.  You can sit in the 500 level for $46.25, but Ticketmaster is adding $26 per ticket in fees.  More than half of the cost of the ticket.  I know people have been complaining about ridiculous ticket fees for years, but that's the craziest I've ever seen.

The more they play, the better they'll sound, I'm sure. I saw some footage from the Vegas show, and while Axl sounded really good on November Rain, when they reached the big guitar solo towards the end,  Slash sounded like someone who had never touched a guitar, just hitting random strings.
