Come on, there's gotta be a thread for the likely reunion in 2016.

 

As a college kid from their heyday years, I'm horribly pumped over the pending nostalgia of hearing Slash and Axl together again. I saw them in Knoxville on the Use Your Illusion tour, right before Izzy quit, and they sounded so friggin' great. Hopefully Izzy can hop aboard the reunion and Axl can approximate his vocals from back in the day.

 

Wherever they'll be, and whatever it'll cost, count me in.

I guess Axl is finally broke.  He has run that train into the ground.

Ftfy.

Can't wait. Hopefully Axl gets his voice in shape.

I've seen videos in recent years when Axl sounded good. Yet with his style, you're bound to find others where he's strained his voice to where he sounds bad.

It's part of the unpredictable thrill known as a real G n R concert.

Is the reunion getting put on hold since Axl is filling in for Brian Johnson to finish the AC/DC tour?

I heard a recording of November Rain from Coachella on Sirius this morning. I gotta tell you it was flat out awful. It sounded like Axls voice was completely shot. Gravelly and very weak. Maybe he had pushed it too far and this was near the end of the set, I have no idea. But it was really really bad.

He sounded awful. The music still sounded great.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I've never heard concert audio where Axl sounded good.

I have tickets for Pittsburgh.

 

I typically abstain from talking Guns with people, particularly online. Too much snark and shade thrown Axl's way. He deserves some of it, of course, but not nearly what he gets. People remember his antics from the early 90's and his voice from a few train wreck performances. 

 

The reviews from all of the shows (by people that actually attended, not watched on YouTube) have been fantastic, for Axl and the rest of the band. 

 

If you think this is bad, I'm not sure what to tell you.

Best GNR song?  Tough for me to go against Sweet Child O Mine but I may have to go Civil War.

I'm a big fan of November Rain. That's right, going with the power ballad!

Lots of great songs though.

I'll add the acoustic You're Crazy from the GNR Lies album. Great fucking song.
