    Ah, thanks. I'm confused. Saw the clip on Blabbermouth yesterday and assumed was for a new series. So they're releasing old series of it in other countries / channels then, presumably.

    The Dan Rather interview is much newer than the Life on the Road shows.

    They were all broadcast on the Sky Arts channel initially if I remember correctly. The Lars one is a cracker, but they were all great.

    Regarding the commentary on the last page about the band going on as Angus + whomever.....

    I think we'd see the band back out with new stuff & a tour by now had fans not pitched fits when he toured with Slade & Axl. I don't think anyone wants to go through that bullshit & I don't blame them. If I were Angus, I'd say, "Fuck 'em". You don't like it - stick this in your fusebox - a lump of coal.

    Meanwhile, Slade is out there touring and having a great time. His lead guitarist is now playing the solos Eddie Van Halen style which is annoying as hell, but the fans seem to keep buying tickets and if their reaction on video is any indicator - having a great time!

    Axl is touring, raking in the cash. Fan keep buying tickets and he keeps touring.

    Meanwhile, it's crickets here at best, sackcloth & ashes at worst - all because "we" want the near classic lineup or bust. Well......it's seemingly bust!

    In all seriousness though, the above premise makes no sense. It goes against the whole idea of what everyone was talking about. Angus will do what he wants and he isn't going to listen to some diehards bitching about his decisions.

    Guys really? This was it? The guys spend 2 months in the studio and nothing came out of it? Really?? I don't want to believe that! I can understand no tour, but why not release the material??
    After I was really happy seeing the boys back together, I am now at a point were I feel sad that we will never hear new music from the nearly classic line up...

    Indeed. How else would we know what Chris Slade is doing and how much he's enjoying himself doing it.

    Sony will remain extremely keen to release new product before or incorporated into a compilation/collection. It remains to be seen how this all resolved. Sad, if it just fizzles out.

    Still hope in the box.

    This confirms that there was not an album recorded then, but only a few songs.

    Never really bought into Axl returning to the fold (but understand why others have) but he's busy well into 2020 by the looks of things.

    No it doesn’t Meany. It means that tracks were recorded, I was told 7 had been laid down and that was during the process not an end total, obviously I can’t verify that number. I don’t know how many were recorded or what they were for, for sure.

    I still don’t know for certain that the release won’t happen.

    Thanks for the words. I’m somewhat glad we’re at a point where this information isn’t under lock and key anymore, yet that also means that the entire situation is a mess. 7 tracks is much more than I was expecting on a supposed compilation.

    Being very hopeful for a new album/tour is a bit unrealistic, yet so is tossing everything out of the window because it hasn’t come yet is, too.

    Thanks Jem...

    Jem, are the problems we were talking about many moons ago solved or is there still something to solve...

    Do you know if they were really using original Mal rhythm takes for the tracks.

    If you won't comment that i totally respect that, but maybe you can go a little bit more out of the box ;-)

    Anyway, thanks for all Info's so far.
    Let's hope there will be something soon

    Yes thanks a lot for keeping a bit of hope still up! Means a lot me me and probably to many more

    If they were 7 songs in at some point, that implies 10+ were recorded eventually. So it seems a massive pity this hasn't been released.

    Combining the songs with a BIB 40th thing seems possible, I hope they won't cut them down and not release some of them.

    Idea of live dates + album....it's looking very remote now.

    My thoughts exactly. If there's a confirmed 7 tracks, you know through logic alone they didn't stop there, and put down enough material for an entire album. But with time marching on, I can't fathom a tour feasible with the near classic lineup unless something happens, like umm, well, yesterday.

    Maybe it will be released coinciding with BiB 40 for the reason to boost sales for what $$ will not be gained as result of limited or no tour? Just a thought?

    Shows or not, the straight info that a fair number of tracks were recorded is fantastic.

    Maybe... Plus I suppose booking all the venues is a massive task, finding the gaps, with all the other bands etc. out there?

    A full tour was never on the cards anyway, but selected dates, stadiums, maybe festivals....something could still happen.

    I actually think Brian will still nail he easier songs even in 2020. But I don't want to see the poor guy dealing with Thunderstruck and stuff. They need to be sensible else it could end up awkward.

    If what was to be a tribute to Mal fizzles out in this way it will be a sad and, quite frankly, pitiful way for it to end. Mal's memory deserves FAR better.

    I don`t mean to sound too optimistic, and at the end of the day my guess is as good as yours, however I remain absolutely confident that this is not the end...… the boys will ensure that one way or another Mal`s memory is honoured and that the appropriate full stop is placed at the end of what has been the most incredible journey......
  20.  
    From my guess I would say the supposed album could have a Christmas time release. Gotta cash in on that Christmas money aye? Maybe Angus wants the tour scheduling similar to the rock or bust tour.

    However, with it being recorded over a year ago its very possible it was scrapped just like the wrigley field DVD. Just dont get your hopes up lads.

    Well mate, i really doubt anyone has got their hopes up at this point...
  21.  
    I feel like they likely wouldn’t do another Axl/DC tour unless the songs were recorded with Axl from the get go. Recording an album with Brian and then promoting it only with Axl seems awfully strange to me. As unpopular as the idea may seem, maybe Angus wants to re-record the songs with Axl and scrap the Brian version. It’s definitely a less than optimal idea but I could see him doing something like that.

    That's what was rumoured so nothing new
  23.  
    Let's be fucking honest here. If a few tracks have been recorded for Malcolm and no new album then it's highly unlikely if Brian, if not not able to do a full tour, they will get Axl to do their final tour FFS. And I hope for the love of god there is a final tour as it'll get fucking beyond embarrassing a pensioner in a school suit
