Could have been a live solo, he almost never played anything the same as on the record.


I don't listen to much of their stuff live, I'm 100% sure that it's on my Itunes.

I've had GnR running non stop for 4 hours now.
I listen to it passivley though so I won't notice when the solo comes anyhow...

Okay, so some people say Chinese Democracy is a flop, when it has sold almost two million copies in less than two months...

It has already sold more than Appetite For Destruction did in ONE year.

Of course ChiDem will never reach the total sales of AFD, but I just like to say this to shut haters up.

I don't know exact numbers but it is bound to cross the two million mark any time now.

And AFD was the debut album so you can't really compare the two, but two million with almost no promotion is freaking fantastic no matter how you view things.

Almost no promotion.. I guess 13 years in the making didnt catch anyones attention? That Dr. Pepper thing too, I bet none of you heard about that.

He's being sarcastic I think. But Equilateral, the Dr Pepper promotion and 13 years in the making does not mean it had sufficient enough promotion. I rarely heard anything about it on the radio or TV (Saw an advert for it twice). No interviews, or performances near the release date, nothing.

Promotion as in interviews, music videos, etc.

Look at Walmarts work for AC/DC. Best Buy didn't even come close to that, regardless of Axl's involvment.

I'm sorry for changing the topic here but has anyone seen the live cover that Guns N' Roses did of Wild Horses? Best **** I've ever seen. And theres a little guitar duel between Slash and Izzy in the beggining.

EDIT: It's not Izzy, It's Gilby Clarke, or however you spell it.
I LOVE GUNS N' ROSES.

Kind of off topic, but has anyone heard Vengence Is Mine, by Alice Cooper? Slash played guest guitar on it and it is some insane use of the wah pedal.
#139
Didn't hear the song, but I believe you about the insane wah pedal part. Slash didn't use many effects, but he was insane with a wah!!!

I wish I was alive in the 80s, and old enough to go their show at the Ritz in 88. But no, I am stuck in the past.

Izzy Stradlin is the only GNR member (of the AFD lineup) that has a high school diploma.

Wouldn't be surprising to me. You never know who's in GN'R. What was it 2 weeks ago Wikipedia told me that Frusciante was in GNR. BTW people should pick up Frusciantes album that came out today. it's really really good!

Really? No wonder all these rumours are flying around.

There was one posted earlier today saying that Axl is releasing "The Spaghetti Incident? Volume Two" with left over sessions from the first one and he's doing this because of the commercial success of Chinese Democracy. I just had to laugh because they said that he had posted this on MyGNRForum I think it was.

haha that's ****in Great! I didn't see that when i was on there today, that's real funny though. I don't think "Dexter" has been on any forums lately though. otherwise we woulda all heard

EDIT: Haha just went and checked it out! F'n great! Hope that Slash has a speedy recovery from that snake bite!

GNR releasing The Spaghetti Incident Volume Two as Itunes Only
Following the lower than expected sales of the new Guns N Roses album, Chinese Democracy, GNR front man Axl Rose announced on the MyGNRForum.comwebsi te that he would be releasing The Spaghetti Incident? Volume Two as an itunes only release. The album will feature tracks leftover from the original The Spaghetti Incident? sessions and a new cover of the Eurythmics 'Sweet Dreams'.

Axl stated "I've realised that only the die hard fans have bought Chinese Democracy out of respect for my abundant talents as a producer. The release of The Spaghetti Incident? Volume Two is a signal to to the broader fan base that I'm heading back to what made Guns N Roses famous in the first place - namely covers of bands that were popular in the 1980s. With respect to the Eurythmics song 'Sweet Dreams' , I figure if it worked for Marilyn Manson it should work for me. My braids are just as scary as him, if not more."

Other tracks on the album include the little known Gilby Clarke acoustic version of Duran Duran's 'Rio' and an alt rock version of Warrant's Cheery Pie. No Charles Manson songs are to be included this time round with Axl saying his intentions were pure last time but that he was like Pink and simply "Mizzunderstood"

Former Guns and Roses member Izzy Straddlin is said to be unconcerned that he does not appear on any on the songs despite his long term committment to the band. "If Axl wants to play covers again, that's cool with me, I'm just going to tour my solo album in France and then maybe hit the studio with Axl in the fall."

Slash could not be reached for comment after apparently suffering a bizzare trouser snake accident while holdiday in Tahiti.

Lololololololololololol Prostitute reference.

Maybe this is a sign from the powers that be, demanding more GNR puns?

This is interesting (not but the lack of news makes this worth posting)

My cover of Catcher In The Rye... well, I sent the instrumental to another guy and he did a cover of my cover with an "Axl Rose" voice.

Mine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOfNxtBjQbQ&feature=related

Hmmmm, meh. I'd say your vocals are better. The other one seems too put on. Yours are cool cos they're unusual covers where as it seemed like a bad attept at a cover with the other guy...

I just think it goes to show that there's only one Axl. You can't really cover a GNR song and try to do it exactly like Axl, because nobody can do it like him.
