  1. The vault housed tape masters for Decca, the pop, jazz and classical powerhouse; it housed master tapes for the storied blues label Chess; it housed masters for Impulse, the groundbreaking jazz label. The vault held masters for the MCA, ABC, A&M, Geffen and Interscope labels. And it held masters for a host of smaller subsidiary labels. Nearly all of these masters — in some cases, the complete discographies of entire record labels — were wiped out in the fire. The scope of this calamity is laid out in litigation and company documents, thousands of pages of depositions and internal UMG files that I obtained while researching this article. UMG’s accounting of its losses, detailed in a March 2009 document marked “CONFIDENTIAL,” put the number of “assets destroyed” at 118,230. Randy Aronson considers that estimate low: The real number, he surmises, was “in the 175,000 range.” If you extrapolate from either figure, tallying songs on album and singles masters, the number of destroyed recordings stretches into the hundreds of thousands. In another confidential report, issued later in 2009, UMG asserted that “an estimated 500K song titles” were lost. The monetary value of this loss is difficult to calculate. Aronson recalls hearing that the company priced the combined total of lost tape and “loss of artistry” at $150 million. But in historical terms, the dimension of the catastrophe is staggering. It’s impossible to itemize, precisely, what music was on each tape or hard drive in the vault, which had no comprehensive inventory. It cannot be said exactly how many recordings were original masters or what type of master each recording was. But legal documents, UMG reports and the accounts of Aronson and others familiar with the vault’s collection leave little doubt that the losses were profound, taking in a sweeping cross-section of popular music history, from postwar hitmakers to present-day stars. Among the incinerated Decca masters were recordings by titanic figures in American music: Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Al Jolson, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland. The tape masters for Billie Holiday’s Decca catalog were most likely lost in total. The Decca masters also included recordings by such greats as Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five and Patsy Cline. The fire most likely claimed most of Chuck Berry’s Chess masters and multitrack masters, a body of work that constitutes Berry’s greatest recordings. The destroyed Chess masters encompassed nearly everything else recorded for the label and its subsidiaries, including most of the Chess output of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, Bo Diddley, Etta James, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy and Little Walter. Also very likely lost were master tapes of the first commercially released material by Aretha Franklin, recorded when she was a young teenager performing in the church services of her father, the Rev. C.L. Franklin, who made dozens of albums for Chess and its sublabels. Virtually all of Buddy Holly’s masters were lost in the fire. Most of John Coltrane’s Impulse masters were lost, as were masters for treasured Impulse releases by Ellington, Count Basie, Coleman Hawkins, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, Alice Coltrane, Sun Ra, Albert Ayler, Pharoah Sanders and other jazz greats. Also apparently destroyed were the masters for dozens of canonical hit singles, including Bill Haley and His Comets’ “Rock Around the Clock,” Jackie Brenston and His Delta Cats’ “Rocket 88,” Bo Diddley’s “Bo Diddley/I’m A Man,” Etta James’s “At Last,” the Kingsmen’s “Louie Louie” and the Impressions’ “People Get Ready.” The list of destroyed single and album masters takes in titles by dozens of legendary artists, a genre-spanning who’s who of 20th- and 21st-century popular music. It includes recordings by Benny Goodman, Cab Calloway, the Andrews Sisters, the Ink Spots, the Mills Brothers, Lionel Hampton, Ray Charles, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Clara Ward, Sammy Davis Jr., Les Paul, Fats Domino, Big Mama Thornton, Burl Ives, the Weavers, Kitty Wells, Ernest Tubb, Lefty Frizzell, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Bobby (Blue) Bland, B.B. King, Ike Turner, the Four Tops, Quincy Jones, Burt Bacharach, Joan Baez, Neil Diamond, Sonny and Cher, the Mamas and the Papas, Joni Mitchell, Captain Beefheart, Cat Stevens, the Carpenters, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Al Green, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Elton John, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Buffett, the Eagles, Don Henley, Aerosmith, Steely Dan, Iggy Pop, Rufus and Chaka Khan, Barry White, Patti LaBelle, Yoko Ono, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the Police, Sting, George Strait, Steve Earle, R.E.M., Janet Jackson, Eric B. and Rakim, New Edition, Bobby Brown, Guns N’ Roses, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Sonic Youth, No Doubt, Nine Inch Nails, Snoop Dogg, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Hole, Beck, Sheryl Crow, Tupac Shakur, Eminem, 50 Cent and the Roots. Then there are masters for largely forgotten artists that were stored in the vault: tens of thousands of gospel, blues, jazz, country, soul, disco, pop, easy listening, classical, comedy and spoken-word records that may now exist only as written entries in discographies. http://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/11/magazine/universal-fire-master-recordings.html Look at these cowards, saving unimportant works we've heard millions of times while "Soul Monster" burns 😥

  5. In my opinion one of the biggest mistakes of the Red Panda was to recruit this girl into the band. Anyway, nothing can be done about it ... SQ: Walk us through what it was like when you got the invitation to be part of the band. Was it an immediate yes or did you have to think about it? MELISSA REESE: It was a process because I didn’t really think I was being asked. I thought it was a joke at first. It sort of went through these stages of, “Oh my god it’s not a joke.” Then I sort of started to have to actually do the hard work and really prove myself. By the time I got into the thick of it and thought okay I gotta get into this thing, I was fully in “work mode”. (The band–along with Caram Costanzo who originally recommended me, and our managers) respected it and saw that I was filling a lot of musical needs that the they had. ESQ: I gotta ask, was there some sort of formal ceremony, when the band members welcomed you? MR: There was a vetting process, definitely. But it was ultimately up to Axl, the other band members and our managers Fernando and Beta (Lebeis). You just have to be a very specific type of person to be able to work under these conditions. And what I mean by that is being personally, and musically respectful of something this crazy fucking iconic and huge, while simultaneously knowing your worth even though you’re a millennial girl. You gotta know what your puzzle piece is and where your value is, and be strong there. ESQ: Can we expect new music from Guns N’ Roses? MR: Unfortunately, I’m not at liberty to say. I hope for the best. Anything that allows me to spend more time with my big bros, I embrace a thousand, million, billion percent. But I hope. I hope.

  6. apparently, if you listen closely to the background in one of this guy's videos, you can hear an unreleased song? that's what the guy who sent them to me said at least
  7. “I find it on Tumblr, Pinterest or some weird site I might come across. Horror and nudity are my two favorite things. I do post some music stuff but that’s so predictable, so I post all this shit that I like that has nothing to do with anything that people necessarily know me for. I’ve been producing horror moviesas of late, so it falls into that.”
  8. Guns N' Roses return to No. 1 on Billboard... ...'s Top Facebook Live Videos chart, ruling the December 2018 tally with a live clip of "Sweet Child O’ Mine." The chart, which recaps monthly Facebook activity, is a look at the widest-reaching and most-reacted-to videos posted by musicians on Facebook Live, as tracked by media analytics company Shareablee. Rankings are determined by a formula that blends reactions, comments, shares and first-seven-days views. 💩 Guns N’ Roses' video, uploaded Dec 9, showed the band performing its classic song at a concert in Honolulu. The five-minute clip was the biggest Facebook Live video by a musical act in two of the four chart metrics, including reactions 💩 (26,000) and views in its first seven days (447,000) Jennifer Lopez rolls in at No. 2, thanks to a Dec 11 video showing the singer and actress making a surprise appearance at a screening of her new film, Second Act, which was released in U.S. theaters on Dec. 21. The brief video racked up 12,000 reactions and was watched 408,000 times in its first seven days.

  10. In describing the reunion of the band and the Not in This Lifetime… Tour, Slash raves that, "It's been one of the most amazing professional experiences of my career," before adding that after being apart for nearly 23 years, the reunion has been very well received and a humbling experience. Slash describes the record's hectic completion, saying they, "hunkered down and … started recording and literally finished mastering the record on my way to GNR rehearsal for the next leg of that tour." He describes the record as "a straight-ahead rock and roll record. It's very live and very raw." He's not certain what's in store after the band finishes up the tour July 9. Whatever lies in his future, it is safe to say that the man deemed one of the greatest guitarists of all time and 2012 Rock N Roll Hall of Fame inductee won't lay down his favorite Gibson Les Paul guitar for too long before the passion and tenacity that have guided him to success propels him into yet another undoubtedly exciting project. http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/international/8488855/slash-guns-n-roses-tour-asia-new-album-interv NEW SONGS ON THE HORIZON: 0

  13. In the last several weeks, following the release of Guns N' Roses $1,000 box set version of Appetite for Destruction, there has been an unprecedented wave of copyright strikes against GNR fan sites on YouTube, Soundcloud, and the web, etc. etc. GunsNFNRoses.com has personally received copyright strikes on their YouTube and Soundcloud accounts, and has had their previous, coward, web-host Siteground revoke their contract with no refund and no explanation. Other high-quality sites have also been affected. Gibboo's YouTube channel, was probably the best GNR channel on YouTube. This account has been completely destroyed. Years of hard work and countless videos lost. To date, the only response from GNR management has been smug, dick-breathed Tweets from long-time ass-hat Del James.

  15. The Locked N' Loaded collection includes skull rings, temporary tattoos, and 49 previously unreleased songs. The shame you will feel upon purchase comes at no extra cost. Famed rock music ensemble Guns 'N' Roses confirmed this morning that they will release a remastered version of their 1987 debut album, Appetite for Destruction, on June 29. It'll come out on a few different formats, but nobody really cares. Because, holy Hell, take a look at the Locked N’ Loaded box set, the high-end package. Here, please, watch this unboxing video, which moves at a pretty rapid pace but still lasts for well over two minutes: Look at all that shit! That's so much shit! That's a four-CD "super deluxe edition" with the Appetite remaster, the self-explanatory B-Sides N' EPs, the equally well-formatted Sound City Session N’ More recordings, and the confusingly titled Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide EP. You'll also get a load of music and a previously unseen video for "It's So Easy" on a Blu-Ray disc, and there'll be six 7-inch singles and a copy of Shadow of Your Love on yellow vinyl thrown in. There are 49 previously unreleased songs in total. I cannot believe that they have 49 unreleased songs to get through. But the music will seem less important when you open up your embossed faux-leather dollhouse to find five metal band skull face rings, five metal band skull face lapel pins, and five metal guitar picks with band skull faces and signatures. There's a two-inch collectible coin (?), a seven-inch large hole adapter (??), and some temporary band member tattoos (!!!). Elsewhere, there is a USB stick. And the word "lithos" comes up regularly. Now, obviously, you have to be a rich asshole to buy this. It'll set you back $999, an amount of money that I'd really like to think would make the idea of 10,000-copy worldwide limit redundant. And you, reader, will look very silly if you spend that money. When—or if—you welcome guests into your home, you will have to hide this box, because the shame will overwhelm you. But all you will find to cover it with is a large Guns N' Roses lithograph. One day, you will inadvertently leave your Izzy Stradlin thumb ring on when you leave the house. But, purely from a conceptual standpoint, this is an excellent idea from Guns N' Roses who, in 2018, are the physical manifestation of a $999 box set. If Radiohead can sell people $200 vinyl copies of Kid A that carefully exploit vinyl holograms to make it seem like the listener has friends who aren't on message boards, then one of the world's most comically ostentatious rock bands—middle-aged men who still conjure up images of hot pants top hats and drunken brawls—should be able to do this. I implore you: Do not buy the Locked N’ Loaded box set. But do stand back and admire the the people who thought the world needed skull rings and temporary tattoos with their faces on them.

  16. OK, guys. I think we all know what's going on here, so let's just get it out in the open... Frank Ferrer visits GNFNR regularly and he's trying to communicate something to us with his "SHIT" shirt. Clearly there's no other objective explanation. I don't know whether he's trying to communicate with Brasky because he's an insider, or with me because Fernando talks to me, or with bacardi because he is the Shit King, but he's trying to say something to us. It is our duty to figure out what. So, the "Shit" t-shirt... WHAT DID HE MEAN BY THIS???!!!
  17. I'd say, this is probably the worst cover i've ever heard in my life Did they play this shit regularly? What an absolute disgrace.I mean i'm not the biggest Neil Young fan, but he had a special vibe with this song. Axl it's just fatter and shitter than ever P.S. Please post ONLY covers outside of GNR, not classic GNR songs butchered by the hired hands
