Sounds great! Axl sounds awesome as usual and Slash really looks like he’s enjoying it

Reminds me of Soul Station … the vocalist warbling away in a high register trying to force the notes out because he can’t sing in a more comfortable range. Sounds like the chipmunks. It’s an interesting song, but it’s hard to get into it with that distracting pained singing.

I wish I had down syndrome like TheCULTofMANSON so I could enjoy this.

Awful song with Axl in full Herbert the Pervert mode.

What's up with the lame alligator film playing in the background?

Song is an atrocity.

I would not go see them even if I were paid for it.

Axl is a cool lyric writer but it’s obvious his “songwriting” skills are subpar.

Appetite was one of my favorite albums but anything after just reeks of trying to hard to me.

It’s 2023 and he’s still polishing that Chinese turd.

And it was Appetite, written/recorded by those five guys, that put the band on the map and allows Axl to still be working on this crap in 2023.

Remember when they used to write songs that grooved like 70's Aerosmith?

That band is long, long gone.

Axl really needs to stop trying to be "epic" and just rock...

Yep... from UTI on he kept trying to be a half-assed Elton John, slowly killing the band in the process...

My god, they’re absolutely horrible.

I keep wondering who’s paying to see this nerd rock… then I remember, oh yeah the same geeks who listened to UYI in the 90s.

It makes me wonder, has Axl actually written a new song since Chinese Democracy? He's probably still bitching that the record company released it and he wasn't able to finetune it for another 15 years.

Hasn't Slash got tired of this shit yet?

He quit the band over playing this kinda garbage 30 years ago. I know he needed the money post-divorce, but he's sitting on a pile of cash now.

I guess this is a just a paycheck, and he can make real music with his solo band if he wants to.

I was there Thursday night.
It was a good show. Axl hasn't been his usual douchebag self since 2017. He's been happy and performed well. This is my 3rd show since then.
HOWEVER!
The setlist left a little to be desired. Way too much Chinese Democracy for me and the Use Your Illusion that no one listens to! Who wants to hear that? Not me!
My superfan friend texted me, "You got to hear The General played live for the first time!"
OK, I guess I did, but I don't know the song... While I guess I heard it at the show not sure where is was in there. :lol:

Wasn’t terrible but clearly written by someone not in GNR 20 years ago. This is the best they got?

I think he wrote Rock The Rock

Sounds like a throwaway tune he came up with while jamming with Angus Young.

We get it - you're retarded and enjoy listening to past its prime bands.

This is a turd. Imagine this track as an opener on AfD :lol:
