New G'nR Song?

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by alexssandro, Aug 30, 2002.


  1. I was listening to the radio today (my new car only has radio) and I heard a Guns 'n Roses (or Axl :rolleyes: ) song I had never heard before.

    The chorus went something like "Don't mess with this son of a gun, don't mess with this son of a b**ch."

    Is this a new song, or have I just been really out of it? I must admit I hardly ever listen to the radio.

    It's gotta be their cover of "Hair of the dog" by Nazareth. GnR's version is about 10 years old.

    The original Nazareth song is probably closer to 25-30 years old.

    As Axl Rose did appear on the MTV Video Awards show with a band...not the originals...does this mean a new album is forthcoming? Anybody know?

    A friend told me that Buckethead was Guns'n'Roses' guitarist for their unscheduled appearance on the eMpTV Video Awards. Could that possibly be true?? (Somebody please shoot me in the head if Buckethead joined G'n'R full time....)

    Apparently, a new Guns album is still a ways off. Axl must think that if he jerks us all around long enough, we'll be more excited about his "rebirth." :rolleyes:

    I believe the new album is to be called Chinese Democracy. They are on tour overseas as we speak. Check out their official site at www.gnronline.com.

    FWIW, I can't see the new G 'n' R doing anything close to what the original G 'n' R did. You couldn't beat Jungle with a stick.

    Axl & Co have like 3 years "finishing" the new GnR album, it´s called "Chinese Democracy" and thats all that I know.....


    That´s true, the man have been playing with Axl since their "debut" gig on new year 2001, and played in Rock in Rio 2001......

    there´s no Slash, no Duff, no Izzy, no Steven Adler... so that´s no GnR for me

    I agree completely...the original line up had magic and charisma. Whatever they lacked in musicianship they made up for by having a unique and dynamic chemistry. There can be no real , meaningful Guns n' Roses without that original group and I guess a reunion would be darned nearly impossible (until they are the same age as the Eagles and put aside their differences to earn a truckload of money in a "Hell Freezes Over" style tour and new album release.)

    Buckethead, Fripp (NIN) and Brain (Primus) are in the band. I want It to be good. I want it to be great.

    Hah! Robert Fripp - now that would be an interesting rumor.

    Nope, it's Robin Finck from NIN.

    Also Tommy Stinson from the Replacements.

    The lineup is almost surreal to me.

  13. Well i saw them at leeds about a week and a half ago. we were waiting about an hour for them to come on stage. We were waiting so long we made a fire whilst waiting. Anyway
    they came on in darkness and the welcome to the jungle riff came on and the crowd went mad.
     
  14. It's like the other dude said, no slash, izzy or dizzy, no GnR. To top it all off Axl can't sing anymore, he has dreadlocks, and one of the guitar players has a bucket on his head! Whack! Just seems like a scam Axl came up with to get more money for herion. Screw em'
