      Thanks to everyone who makes this place so much fun to visit, and THANK YOU to everyone who donated last January. The good news/bad news is that GunsNFNRoses has outgrown its current hosting plan, and if we want to stay online we are going to need to upgrade.   You can donate any amount, large or small (via PayPal). My PayPal username is matt.grillo@gmail.com Please enter your forum username so I can match up your contribution with your username. Thank you!   Every dollar helps. If you don't have PayPal a simple check would do. You can mail it directly to me, please PM me for my mailing address. I appreciate your support.   I do not want banner ads here so if you can help us out it would be appreciated. I dislike begging for money for the site but such is life... Thanks for understanding. I really appreciate all of your support. Please help  by donating now, THANK YOU GNFNR MEMBERS!

Re-Release of BETTER single

why do you think they left paul out?  he's as much gnr as finck and bucket.  and josh freese too, for that matter.  he has a songwriting credit on CD, and that's more than BBF or Fortus could claim.

Too bad the amazing songwriter and better than Slash guitarist Paul Huge Tobias wasn't on the video. Would love to see some Rock in Rio 3 footage mixed with BH 2002 footage + 2006 tour footage. The GNR family (which supports Adler 100% on his recovery) is so big!

To give HRS and Maynard one more reason to bitch about.

 

Stop bitching about other posters and stay on topic.

one thing i think is interesting about better... this melody inside of me still searches for solution... a broken heart provides the spark for my determination.  i like how these lyrics are about his desire to express himself and turn his grief into great music.  i feel like so much of the album is about axl's desire to make a great album.

He didn't like playing in front of a lot of people and touring.

I always thought that was just spin.

He was kicked out of the band by Tommy and Del.

he was not that good as a guitarist but he was a decent song writer

Fortus is much better

SHow of hands? How many of you loved BETTER when you first heard it in 2006-8?

Great vocals from Axl IMO.

Nah.

 

I've always had the sense that I was the first to know that CD sucked since I thought the demos sucked.

 

Where's sixes? "The demos were good" must be somewhere on the GNR fan myth list.

I would argue that the Better leak was the pinnacle of GNR post 90's. Either that or the impromptu Axl interview on the Eddie Trunk radio hour. Where we are at now is like season 49 of The Simpsons. Pull the plug already.

I loved the 2006 "Better" that leaked. I had that bitch on repeat for hours. It was just fuckin' cool to hear Axl's voice again on a new song. It seemed like all the years of bullshit were over and it was a new beginning. Little did we know.

Agreed. I remember discovering a fan made video for better when it leaked. I was blown away. Definitely some of the best lyrics in CD. As much as like it, I rarely listen to it anymore though.
