Slash isn’t on it.

The song was initially written during the Chinese Democracy sessions, and had the working title of "Jackie Chan".[3] A 20 second snippet was leaked as "Checkmate" in 2006. The full version, recorded from 1999-2001, leaked online in 2019.[4]

The song was soundchecked on the Guns N' Roses 2020 Tour in 2021.[5] The single release is a reworked version of the song, featuring Slash and Duff McKagan, who rejoined the band in 2016.

My condolences, I mean, apology.

I prefer the more traditional school based ditty ...

This and absurd are them getting back and warming up. Idk if their new material will suck, but these sound more like mess around tunes than real releases.

K that song is decent. A little generic, but it at least rocks.

I listened to the whole song on Spotify, and it is actually better than what I was expecting. The bar has been set pretty low for me when it comes to GnR, however.

Better than the 1st one they released. Sounds more like their old stuff. Especially the guitar and the chorus. I can honestly say I like it.

Call it whatever you like, that is an Axl solo record, not a Guns record.

Didn't know there was a thread on it already. Just got back. Mexico is a helluva drug
