He can't have a normal conversation because he has to control the narrative. His ideology is all about control. I bet he was even grateful for the coup to distract from the debate he was previously being obliterated in a few pages back.

And while everyone is distracted, Trump is using his last few weeks in office to roll back LGBT civil rights. But yeah, totally not the party of Strom Thurmond and Lee Atwater showing it hasn't changed or anything...

Something that occurred to me.... How important are music videos to you guys nowadays?

A bunch of the new music released last year that I enjoyed, didn't have any music videos, or maybe the whole album had one video.

The music was definitely something I listened to, but I can't say I watched the videos more than once....

Totally different to the MTV era.

I get that people still watch videos on YouTube and discover new music that way.

But as GN'R fans, are music videos still important?

I discovered GNR by watching MTV with my father when I was 11 years old. We had just gotten cable in October 1987.  It was actually a video montage during a commercial break. The video montage had GNR last. It showed the clip of Axl in the electric chair during the WTTJ video. Seeing that had a huge impression on me as a kid. My father  said that this was a great band! If I didn't see that clip, I'm not sure if I would have discovered GNR or become a hardcore fan.

I do think that music videos plays a part in discovering a new artist. Music videos may not be as influential as they were in the 80s and 90s. However, I think they still play a role.

I don't know if record companies nowadays are prepared to invest as much in videos and advertising as they used to be.

The popularity of music videos is measured in views on YouTube.


People still listen to music though.... That's the good news.

Youtube can actually be a decent revenue stream nowadays though. You have content creators on there making a living off their channel alone. I'm not sure how it used to work with MTV using music videos, whether they were paid a flat sum, or every time it aired, or dependent on viewership, or what. But AC/DC's video for Shot in the Dark already has 20 Million views. So I don't think the music video is dead at all. Lots of artists are doing really cool stuff with videos these days and Youtube allows people to watch them whenever they want instead of waiting and hoping it got rotation on MTV.

So I was checking out New Zealand for my daughter's honeymoon trip in October/November.  Look at these travel restrictions:  https://www.immigration.govt.nz/about-us/covid-19/border-closures-and-exceptions#travel-eligibility  I know that's without the vaccine consideration but that's a lot of caution.  Looks like it's going to be a long time before anybody is getting in there for travel.

live concerts/video footage is a fun compromise for now while there are no shows and while some people may not be ready or ok with attending concerts again in the near future. I think a full live show is fun for us die-hard fans, but the casual fan likes the music video aspect. so that's why you see bands uploading 2-3 songs from a show here or there.

attention span of the viewer may not be great enough to get them to sit for 3 hours and watch a whole show, but you can get their clicks and their views on short clips instead.

I've wondered if a platform like Netflix or Prime would be interested in working with GnR like they have been with comedians. They could release a 2016-2019 concert and possibly archived material like Tokyo 92, or a pasted together Live Video Compellation then follow that up with a special that coincides with the release of new music. If there is time to capture it (or if it's already been captured) they could release a making of the album special that also includes a music video for the first single with official interviews (that they have full content control over).

Something like that may make for sense with Amazon, as they can co-promote the partnership with Prime TV, Amazon Music, and a branded Alexa tie in. The music could and should still be available in all traditional formats and available on all streaming platforms. The exclusivity would just be in the pre release content and possibly an extra track or two (like Coma on Live-Era only being available on the Japan release).


As far as I know, Netflix has made some specials with artists too. Documentaries, concert films etc.

purple variant sold out instantly, gold regular edition still has a handful up for grabs according to the site. congrats to those who scored!

if you bought one I'd keep a look out for future newsletters as they have offered pre-sales to past buyers on other releases in the past. Smiley

Some musicvideo/concert platforms have been tried but i guess youtube is the one prople like to use. Live concertstreaming is popular.

Love concert streaming.  Facebook, youtube, nugsTV.  Chance to see concerts you missed.  Pay less for a band you didn't want to travel to see plus you have a great seat.  That one festival I attended introduced me to bands I had never heard of.  Concert streaming is too cool.  Reminds me of MTV from the old days.
