I'm no big GNR fan myself, but a buddy of mine went to their last concert of the USA tour in LA, and said that Axl can sing again.
Now, I remember I saw boots of 2002 were his voice sounded like Mickey Mouse, so I went Youtubing (really should become a word soon) and his voice is awesome nowadays.

It's nice to see old rockstars improving for a change, whether you like the new band or not there's no denying that the man can sing.

That Nightrain is not of this world. Best live performance they've ever done. Ron Thal's solo runs in circles around Slash's... and I'm a Slash-fanboy.

On the first one... He sounds like shit, and he has to work much harder to get to the highs.. Which really shows :s:

No need to draw the jews into Axl's singing. But there is a point, I reckon that most music critics are tone deaf... but they review albums anyway.

So let's let everyone have their opinion.

Meh, I like his voice, but I hate how they're still called Guns N' Roses, because they aren't Guns N' Roses.

The original 5 were Guns N' Roses, this is Axl Rose and Friends.

I mean, when John Bonham died, Led Zeppelin didn't find a new drummer and stay Led Zeppelin, JPJ left and they were Plant & Page. It's ridiculous.

I don't care if Axl owns the right to the names or not, it's retarded.

It has a tentative release date of March 6th. And there has NEVER been a set date before, just rumours of months, seasons...

That first one sounded awful. Voice like sandpaper.

And there is no way a dude that sings like that should have dreads and a beard. Seriously Axl, go back to the straight-hair clean shaven look.
no

Well, his voice has always resembled the sound of sandpaper. If his voice is the definition of sandpaper, sandpaper must sound good.

Its good to see Guns back even if its not the original members. Even with all this bullshit going around I hope the Chinese Democracy turns out good, we really need some good music in the mainstream nowadays.

i got Guns n Roses live in tokyo DVD '92 for christmas, and i think the nightrain here is much better than back in 92.

i mean, sure they could have had an off night then, but i would imagine if it wasn't one of their better performances, they wouldn't have released it.

maybe this time Axl feels he really has something to prove, and because of that he's doing his all to make their live show a killer.

p.s. Ron Thal is a genius. he sounds like he's influenced by 80's shred metal more than slash was.

Firstly, you seem to forget that Slash created this solo, therefore Thal is just trying to improve on something that never needed inproving in the first place.

He runs rings around Slash? Are you kidding? That solo was a flurry of notes over the original solo, but not even half as good. Eurgh, horrible.

Pff, I prefer Axl's image now. He used to look like a complete gimp, he looks much more 'rock n roll' now. I've seen the new GnR live, and I thought they were staggeringly good. His voice is great, and the new band are brilliant.

Ron Thal > Slash, in all possible ways. And I think Slash is good.

However, the shadowed genius on the new band is Richard Fortus, he's simply brilliant. When I saw them I was expecting Thal or Finck to take the show. I was a fan of both those guys beforehand, but had never heard of Fortus - who is just amazing. His solo's were tasteful yet brilliant, his presence was great. This guy is one to watch

New GnR and Velver Revolver has proved one thing. You've all had it the wrong way round for years. Axl isn't nothing without Slash, it's the other way around.

I disagree. Look at Slash's Snakepit, Slash created some brilliant music within the project. Granted, VR are no where near as good as classic Guns, but they're definitely a hell of a lot better than the new Guns N Roses material.

All Axl does is play old GN'R songs which he only co-wrote and most of his new stuff is an embarrassment to the the Guns N' Roses name.

Yes, it's all subjective, but I think it's quite insane to say Slash is nothing without Axl.

Oh, and Tom, I've been meaning to tell you that I've been having a listen to your band and I think you're pretty good. Your singer has an amazing voice.

Well, we look at it different ways then. Sure, Slash's original solo is fantastic, but I think Thal really takes it to the next level. But each to their own I guess.

And the leaked GNR songs from Chinese Democracy are way better than any Velvet Revolver-song (Contraband was such a disappointment)

Slash's guitar riffs are nice and the solos too, but I can't effin stand Scott Weilands voice...

For one thing, you cannot say the new guitarist is better than slash. You could have Micheal Angelo Batio as the guitarist of GnR and he wouldn't be better than slash. He's Slash, enough said.

That said, this is not GnR, its Axle Rose's solo career(if you could call it that).

This album will either sell really really well, or more likely bomb like suicidal arab. The only way axle rose will ever regain my respect is if A) he put aside all the diferences he has with slash and the others and reform the complete band or B) grant velvet revolver the rights to the name gun's n roses, allowing them to rename themselves as such.
