What does it mean to "start looking very seriously at what we're doing in that regard"

Axl won't do anything and therefore is not a business or an investment anybody wants. He's trouble.. He needs to self-finance his release, and lets be honest, he just does'nt love putting music out enough to do that.. He wants to make money and appreciates music, but the passion and the need to share it, is GONE !

 

The music is already finished .  All he has to do is go to apple, hey here are 20 songs put this on itunes

And its done. No one buys CDs anymore he doesn't have to publish.

They released Chinese Democracy in 2008.

They just released a live album a few months ago.

Next up is the second half of Chinese, and then the remix album.

That's 4 albums right there.

The band post-Slash has been just as productive as the classic-era formation.

The fact that the ability to call a b-side album "Chinese Leftovers" with a picture of half eaten Chinese takeout as the cover isn't motivation enough for this band to put out an album shows that we're never getting another release.

I think Chinese leftovers is hilarous. But I don't think axl has much of a sense of humor about his magnum opus.

Chinese democracy needed a used to love her for levity

Every GNR release other than CD has significant humor, doesn't it? I mean, we can debate whether the humor on the other albums is effective, but it's undoubtedly there, intentionally so. CD is such a dreary fucking album.

Yes, especially bloated ballads like November Rain and Estranged or hair metal crap like Outta Get Me or My Michelle have so much humour in them.

Oh man, If you can't see dark humor in my Michelle or outta get me, I feel bad for you. No humor in November rain or estranged though. At least intentionally. Axl was a serious artist by then.

I agree. But I don't think Axl meant for anyone to laugh. Kinda like this I love

It's not supposed to be a stand up routine.

Every time someone who knows Axl is interviewed about him, it seems like they talk about how funny the guy is. There isn't a smile to be found on CD

The videos for November Rain and Estranged are pretty funny.

Slash ditching a wedding because he wants to get really into doing a guitar solo in the middle of the desert despite having no amp is the peak of the video. It needed more Dolphins though. The priest at the wedding could have been a dolphin.....huge missed opportunity IMO.

Blood In The Water is meant to be funny but no one got it. It is about diarrhea.
