That said, the new GNR band is comprised of some ridiculously talented players but to me, they come off as bland because they're so good. Slash and Duff and Izzy and Steven were "feel" players. The difference between Matt and Adler's drumming is shocking and Matt's songs don't "feel" anywhere near as "good" as Steven's. This was no more apparent than their Rock And Roll Hall of Fame induction, where Guns and Roses sounded like Guns and Roses (minus Axl).
Yeah, you could kinda sense that trickery was at work at certain points.
I seriously couldnt agree more that a given players "feel" can totally change the dynamics of a song, Steven Adler? LOVED his style and no one has even come close to it yet in GNR, what he may have lacked in technical virtuosity he made up for with sheer instinct and muscle, i'd take him ANY day over Sorum, he was just too robotic or something
in many ways... he was kinda the Bruce Kulick of GNR drummers. Whoever was playing in london was ok, i guess.
Gotta say though, that i REALLY enjoyed what the new lead guitarist brought to each song... nobody will ever replace Slash, but his style was more than enjoyable, to quickly try to categorize him i'd say he's more technical and futuristic... kinda Muse on steroids, if that makes any sense.
But yep, no replacement players will ever have quite the same magic as the original lineup in ANY band, its literally like chemistry imo, some people just belong together.
