Damn, I was hoping that Axl would start playing KOHD like he used to, back in 87-93.  The newer version is too slow, mellow, and boring.  The older one was much more vibrant and energetic!  The guitar solos were longer and more melodic.  Also the way Axl sang it was better.  This was a song that you could really feel, back in the old days, but now its just a yawner.  Just listen to the great version off Live Era and compare it to the new one, which isn't half as good as the old.

I think the 2002 version kicks ass while the rest of the versions they have and is doing are boring. That's just me. Even I liked Knockin' when they did it in 02

Well, the 2001-2006 KOHD sounds the same to me, mellow and boring.  Axl should play it like he used to, it was more energetic and GNR'ish back then.

Chinese Democracy Is Coming Some Day!!!

You people have to stop comparing stuff to the older material! This is a new band with a whole new sound. Be thankful what we once had, and be thankful of the new stuff that we have to jam to.

The new version of KOHD is great should be trimmed down just a little but I am glad he has got the crowd back into it. How about the new version of LALD AMAZING!

Boring.

I like both a lot, but the newer one has won me over for the same reasons you dont like it.

But, after nearly 20 years of being played live, its getting tired.

I think KOHD the way its played now is just suited better for Axl at age 44.

While I don't mind the mellower new version, I actually like the bombast and grandiosity of the UYI II version of KOHD - It's still way off the mark as far as covers go, but I liked what GNR did with it.

I agree. The old style was alot more powerful compared to the new mellow version, I doubt he'll go back to doing it that way, but I'd like it if he did.

You people have to stop comparing stuff to the older material! This is a new band with a whole new sound.
Since this is a new band, with a "new sound", they also should play more new songs and leave out the songs of Appetite For Destruction... It's a 1987 album, you know...

Concerning KOHD, I prefer when Slash plays it.

I thought Axl wanted to evolve and experiment new things...

I also thought that Axl didn't care much about what fans want...

Actually, my favorite version of KOHD is the one the band played at RIR 3.

Guitar solo, the way Axl was singing it ... Best version ever for me.

That version, for me, was way better than anything during 2002, or 87-93.

Less than you, certainly.
The knowledge of an old fan like you is quite impressive. Smiley

Rio 3 was the best, but I love the way these guys do it. I don't want to here them do it the way the old line up did it. This is the kind of song you need to make your own.
