Do we have any concrete dates for GN'R sessions and/or video filming dates?

Like, when you look up every Stones record, it's pretty certain when each song was recorded - even if said song was recorded over a period of days to weeks. Like, down to the exact time frames.

Do we have anything of that for GN'R?

For example, we can surmise that Since I Don't Have You was recorded in March of 1993, since Axl, Slash etc all made reference to quickly recording it in a cheap studio in Boston while they were playing there; they played near Boston in March 1993.

But what about say, Sympathy for the Devil? It came out in November 1994, news articles begin trickling out that GN'R had recorded it in October 1994, but Axl said in his 1996 fax that Slash hadn't been involved with GN'R musically since APRIL 1994.

Similarly with videos. In Axl and Slash's January 3rd 1994 interview they discuss potentially making a video for Since I Don't Have You. By late February, it was out.

And still similarily, do we have any idea when stuff like The Making of Estranged - the interview clips - were shot? The Making Of video didn't come out until April 1994, but the actual music video debuted in December 1994

Good question. We do have a lot of this information, but I don't think it has been organized so it is easy to look up. I should probably add this information to relevant chapters in my history section, to have it there.

zombux has made a great effort to summarize all studio recordings, you can see it here: https://www.mygnrforum.com/topic/220883-guns-n-roses-related-studio-sessions-a-definitive-collection-of-available-info/

As for dates for specific recordings/video shoots, I suppose you can just ask in the relevant threads (we have threads for each song), and @Blackstar and I will try to help Smile
