I don't like this song anyway, so who cares Roll Eyes

Er ? maybe the people who like the song?

I also think the new version is a bit too mellow, but I haven't heard it live yet. Glad they don't burst into some reggae, though  hihi

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 would much prefer the faster version, but at least Axl is having the crowd sing along at the end again.  That is old school!!!!!

Hmmm.....I guess I'm torn about this topic.  To me, this '06 version is a split between the '02 and the UYI version.  Not as slow, not as fast. 

Personally, I think I liked the '02 version the best.  Since it's not one of my favorite songs, I liked how it was mellow, not too long, and didn't do the crowd sing along part. (which I never liked and dragged it out longer).

The old version is an insult to the original, the new version pays a fine tribute  ok

The dylan version blows. GnR made that song great. Gotta say I loved the 87-90 version the best. Hated the stupid Give it some reggae shit they did durning the illsiouns tour. This version is a tad bit too mellow but I still think it one of the better songs this new band does live.

I MUCH prefer the newer version -- I really liked the one at RIR recently.  The bad mix via aol made the keyboards sound great.

I'm gonna have to throw the bullshit card on this one.? I like the new version.? Not only does it give the new band its own version, which I think is cool, they also brought in some cool backround sounds on the new one.? Its sounds like there are a few more strings in the new one.? I also like the reggae sound of it in the beginning.

The Ritz performance to me is the benchmark of a KOHD.  I also want to add that I hated the "Give me some reggae" from the early 90's versions.

I like them all, but I am really digging the newer one. It was a great groove at Hammerstein.

Whether or not you like Bob Dylan, don't call it the 'Dylan version.'
It's HIS song; GnR and others are doing their versions.

His is THE SONG, not a version of it.

This song should be dropped from the Setlist... its old and tired and boring.. the sing alongs and solos and the way it just drones on and on and on...

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

I agree. Buckethead had a GREAT little minor solo in it that I really miss

the 2002 version is actually my favorite.

If he did the 2002 version with the sing along at the end it would be perfect.


the version at Rio wasnt my favorite as it was kinda boring in my opinion.

No, not the reggae version.  I'm talking about the Live Era style.  Anyone who thinks the new version is better than how its played on Live Era, should really get their ears checked.  Its a no brainer.
