Rumour has it, that some remixed track very similar to the General was played in a portuguese nightclub in Lisbon this year.
How do you know it's similar to The General if you never heard The General? We aren't even sure if what is played at the beginnings of shows is an intro, a part of an actual song, or just Axl took the parts recorded for that song and remixed them into this.
It was this riff people tacked about not that intro, the video says it's checkmate but I no longer know if it's the same song or another one. But it was this riff and vocals people talked about.
This is a song with a working title "Jackie Chan" which leaked in 2007, but only this part leaked (+ 1,5 sec in better quality with different lyrics [fucking hoarders]). It is a different song from The General. The full version of this song is out there in at least 2 versions.
Highly doubt that.
I meant 2 different leaks (like TWAT '99, '06 and '08). It must be true, because, as I said, the part with "all in goo-" lyrics sounds like the newer leaks, while the other part sounds like the '99 ones.
I do believe the full track was out there to some extent a long time ago. But the story is that the hoarder who had it was raided by the Feds or something like that? I heard another guy said he would help Guns get the track back in return for meeting the band or some perks, and when he did, he heard nothing from band or management. The initial 16 second leak was put out to scare Guns and also to muster up interest from other hoarders. Maybe someone can elaborate?
