I was just listening to AFD last night, it got me thinking about how awesome they could have been. I'm a huge Slash fan, no not a fanboy, some of his stuff does kinda suck, but once Izzy left they went to hell. If the Illusions were one album with the BS taken out it coulda been a great one though, as they are they're just really good with some bad mixed in. "Get in the Ring?" Really?
And thanks for the review, I'm hoping that I'll be able to see Slash one day, he needs to come to Va.
Slash said in his book that he wanted to boil the material down to a dozen great songs but Axl wanted to record them all and clean the slate.
Considering how it all went down in hindsight it was probably a good idea to do that. Otherwise there are a lot of songs that could have gone unheard and all of them have at least some redeeming value IMO.
