    Just back from gig. Met the man himself outside after (he's quite short).

    Anyhow my real question for all you guys with perfect pitch like me (!) is - was Slash's geetar out of tune on Sweet Child O' Mine after he did the wanky Godfather stuff? I'm pretty sure it was but I was standing right in front of the speaker on his side. My ears are still ringing.

    Nighttrain, Rocket Queen, and Slither were the highlights, I thought. Started really full of energy, died a bit around the middle when Myles started playing geetar (strangely).

    The bass guitarist is a bit of an arse. Was he throwing his chewing gum into the crowd? Not cool.

    And finally kudos to the guy who nabbed a t-shirt out of the cardboard box after the gig. You may have a 20 t-shirt in your possession but instant karma's gonna get you.

    I'll admit I did think that about the tuning for a split second, but then I wasnt sure. At times at the very back the sound was a bit muddy, bass and drum heavy, Myles was a bit lost and Slash only really cut through in certain sections, some of the solos were lost a bit.

    I thought the Virgin Marys were fantastic. really great sound. Met their manager as I bought their CD, really nice guy.

    Overall, it was an excellent gig.

    can we notget the Virgin MArys to Derry?
  25. avatar Jimmy Seagus
    He's [i:3073489abb]always[/i:3073489abb] sounded slightly out of tune to me.
    He's just, well, [i:3073489abb]not that good[/i:3073489abb], really.

    Is he still wearing that fucking stupid rubber top-hat?
  26. avatar stevieo
    I couldnt hear him at the gig even with my fingers in my ears. TURN THEM UP. Why is he not that good? When you think of the millions of guitar players across the globe who practice and strive to be the best they can be, how many are totally connected with themselves musically, and go against the grain to be unique, and become icons by resisting the urge to be Van Halen. If you are hooked on both heroin and Jack Daniels yet still get session work off Michael Jackson you truly have a voice.

    You forgot to mention full-fat Marlboros as well.In what way is that [i:5caf7c3bf4]going against the grain[/i:5caf7c3bf4]?
    Surely that's rock'n'roll bullshit cliche right there?
    To me he always sounded deeply average.Any live footage I've seen of him is error-strewn and ploddingly predictable as any 'oul guitar shop noodler.You do know that Van Halen played guitar on Beat It?
    Anyway, neither of them'll be getting anymore work from MJ.
  28. avatar stevieo
    Of course I know about beat it and Van Halen was perfect for the job but every LA rock guitar player in the 80s tried to emulate Van Halen or better him whereas Slash opted to develop his own voice in that period. The point I make is that (to me anyway) he has a totally unique sound. Surely thats what we as musical artists are striving for. A huge amount of guitarists who want to learn how to solo can receive a masterclass on the prebend by learning some Slash licks not to mention a legacy of rock and blues playing. Maybe this is the perdictable element but all these players build on what went on before. A lot of guitarists (especially the technical ones) could benefit hugely from Slash, SRV, Albert King etc. The point I was making about the heroin and the whisky is that I personally couldnt get out of bed with a habit like that let alone go to a studio or a stage.
  29. avatar stevieo
    Muddy Waters is as error strewn as you can get but he's stilla blues legend. I suppose it's about geting the balance right.

    Two words to this thread - Izzy Stradlin.
  31. avatar Biff
    Izzy is an absolute legend and perhaps the key member of GnR.

    He wrote all the best tunes.

    I read an online article recently which basically gave all the credit to Slash's brill sounding Appetite solos to Izzy's chord changes.
