They've done It's So Easy and I Used To Love Her as well.

The band plays them awesomely, but Scott's voice instead of Axl's...

Also, is this image awesome or what?

The new GNR should do some real photo shoots dammit.

What a terrible way to end the old thread...



Waits for Freepower to kick my ass









EDIT: Don't know if this was posted in the old thread, but whatever. Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) thanked Axl in his acceptance speech at the golden globes (Best Performance) the other night. The crowds reaction was pretty funny. They cheered fro everyone and then when he mentioned Axl, the crowd went silent and only a few people cheered. I don't think anyone expected it.

SPEEEEEECH

You something that bugged me with Prostitute, when I got Chinese Democracy for Christmas and listened to it, I got to Prostitute and thought "Jesus, I've heard this awesome song somewhere before" and then a week later I realised that the leak of it was called 2000 Intentions (I think).

The guy in the back is Frank.

Finck is right of Axl.

To the left of Axl must be Stinson, then left of him is Fortus.

Dunno who the guy left of Dizzy is.

Those "little poop heads" come to the 80s rock forum to discuss 80s rock. Chinese Democracy should probably be discussed in modern rock, but it's been in 80s forever anyway so nobody cares.

And yes I'm still here and I still think the old band were miles better, a view which seems to be looked down on here. Rational disagreement is reasonable, but I also bet I get flamed. Which is not reasonable. D:

It's pretty distinct. "In the Garden of song and dance..." I think the lyric goes, that's the bit he sings.

Cool we got a new thread too btw.

I'm not a huge fan of The Garden but I do like the bit where he goes "It's a crazy man's utopia, turned into my worst phobia" it's awesome.

And I wondered when does the new posts icon go pink? it's just beige now.

I think It's So Easy as well, pretty much the songs that Axl wasn't involved in.

I'm not sure if any of you guys will be able to help me, but I reeeaaaallly don't know how Finck gets those amazing solo tones on songs like This I love, Street of Dreams....
Is it a wah pedal being used half on or something?
