  1. I have that record too. The b-side is Move To The City from the Lies sessions.
  2. They're touring with Stoned Jesus, you might like them. I don't listen to much 'stoner rock' but that's a really good album. I'm listening to the new Freddie Gibbs/Madlib/Anderson .Paak track:
  3. He has a yacht doesn't he? Maybe he races it. If racing counts as a sport, does that make him an athlete?
  4. Thin Lizzy - Jailbreak, Thunder And Lightning Foxy Shazam - Foxy Shazam Gojira - From Mars To Sirius Yelawolf - Trunk Muzik Returns Eminem - Slim Shady LP Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare Skid Row - Slave To The Grind Alice In Chains - Dirt Buckethead - Captain EO's Voyage, Population Override Explosions In The Sky - All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone
  5. I don't post here too often, but I read this site a lot. The Reckless Life section has given me plenty of laughs, and one image I'll never be able to erase from my brain. Congrats on running a cool forum for 9 years JB.
  6. And it's a cover. That was the joke. I thought it was funny.
  7. Didn't he say at some point after CD was released (I honestly can't remember if it was the 2008 chats or the 2016 China Exchange, or sometime in-between) that he didn't like that approach as much? Like, having to write lyrics and melodies to finished music was harder than writing them as a song progressed?
  8. Interviewer: I understood when that song came out that it was in 'character'. Duff: Third-person, yea. Interviewer: Kinda like when Dire Straits' Money For Nothing came out, it had the F word in it, and it was from a character of a homophobe basically criticizing something on MTV, that song got censored as well on radio. Did it surprise you at the time that people didn't get what that song was, that it wasn't coming out of Axl's mouth? Because you said, people in your circle didn't use that language. Duff: No, um... I was surprised that, it was, yea... we were supposed to play David Geffen's big AIDs benefit in New York a couple months later, we got pulled out of that. I remember getting on a plane, flying back to Seattle, and an African American flight attendant came up and sat down next to me, and said "do you really hate black people?". I'm like "oh fuck", y'know, part of my family is African American, Slash is half, y'know, um, so people didn't kinda put that together. Hopefully now later, people can examine that song, and I think it's brilliant and super brave of Axl to step out and do that. It was public commentary, just like Paradise City is, just like Jungle is, that song was extreme using the verbiage of the street y'know, of ill-informed people, on the street. Interviewer: Axl's been very vocal on twitter lately, there's a new term, called Woke Axl. Duff: Is that right? He is woke! I know woke 'cause I'm around teenagers. If you're gonna try to outsmart him, or out-intellectual him, it ain't gonna work.
  9. 52:35 I lol'd at his response: He sounds fucked up. Has the NITL tour really aged him that rapidly? "Woke Axl" reference around 48:50 btw. I didn't watch the whole thing, I skipped to 47~ mins to see his defence for One In A Million.
  10. I honestly thought this was sarcastic, like a joke about the lyrics in the other songs he released.... but I was wrong. Duff's solo stuff has never been great, but the Tenderness songs are just unbelievably bad. I actually didn't mind one of them, I think "Don't Look Behind You" was the title, it was alright but it was mostly instrumental...
  11. If anyone wants the 'vocal track' let me know. I still don't think it's a modern recording.
  12. Would love to hear the isolated vocals if you eventually get it to work.
