Guns N' Roses new album by decade's end

Recommended Posts

Commercial success usually comes from creating a product that the people can relate to.

 

But cultural success—becoming a fucking LEGEND—comes from embodying a persona that almost nobody can relate to (Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Michael Jackson, Charlie Sheen, Axl Rose)

These days people don’t want to relate to music, they want music to be a soundtrack to their social media personas. They want music that makes them feel like legends.

This 

I wonder if this is why alot of gangsta rap was popular in the early 2000's 

And now trap for the fortnite generation.

 

Artistry will certainly head in an interesting direction.

In the Age of Amateur Hour rock sort of has to be about identity. The guy on stage reps the audience. They don’t want rock gods. And just doing it’s job. That’s why the biggest bands are Foo Fighters and Nickelback. 

 

Old legend bands like Guns become selfie opportunities. I went to the GNR show, I got tickets, I bought merch, I met the legends. That’s all that rock has to offer. 

 

In general rock might not be the choice because it’s not a soundtrack to typing on social media. Nobody is living that lifestyle in the era of MeToo. People want to be inspired to make twitter comments by music. 

 

Hard Rock is kind of the soundtrack to rape. So even if a rock band is kind repping it’s audience, they also need to be a comedy band like Steel Panther or Eagles of Death Metal now to soften the image of big hairy rocks banging groupies from town to town. 

 

So Axl’s instincts with DC and Looney Tunes are great. Guns need to be a fun hard rock band that the audience can identify with.

2019 and people are still hoping for a new album? Isn’t that the definition of insanity?

Once a decade is the pattern. It does seem like Axl has to be forced in a way.

It will be out by the end of the decade, but it might be late. So, like by 2021

2021 is the year of T7 and 1991. 

 

You’d think the rec comp will want a NITL blu ray and UYI boxset. I feel like these will happen unless the band really try to get stuff done.

They could do the outcast thing in 2021. A double cd. 

 

CD II ft. Slash

and

New Slash GNR album

 

One’s called Guns one is called Roses.

I think Weezer already had the best idea for 2019. 

 

Guns could easily do a classic rock covers album that would bring rock back into the mainstream. 

 

All the covers we’ve heard them do. We Will Rock You, Another Brick in the Wall, Only Women Bleed, Babe I’m Gonna Leave You, The Seeker, Wichita Lineman, Heartbreak Hotel, Rock N Roll, there’s so many!
