Let's see... The image URL is http://i.imgur.com/7Et7o45.png. That starts with "i.i", or "aye-aye". Much beloved phrase of seamen everywhere, particularly "aye-aye, cap'n".

Captain? Sensible?

The Damned! Rejoice! Rejoice! Unknown outside the UK, you say?

Oh, the picture? Clearly a red herring to lead us astray.

The image suggests a renaissance portrait to me. But that would point more to a forger than an impostor, so probably a dead end.

Also, the phrase says the song titles combine to create an accusation to the person, rather than just the person's name itself. So a "somename did it" type of phrase perhaps, rather than "some name".

I like the consideration of other types of impostor though.

Is there any significance to the fact that this doesn't translate to grammatically perfect English? Notably, 'create ate' and 'one oe'

No. Those are unintentional mistakes and I was not aware they were in the puzzle. Please remove "ate" and "oe" as they are not supposed to be there. My apologies!

"Anastasia" and "You're a lie" fit the criteria, as already mentioned (two separate titles that combine to be a direct accusation to one of the fake Anastasias). If it were Slash. But if so, how does the figure fit in?

Also seems unlikely to be Slash given his tie-in with BandFuse, however dead that may be.

This probably isn't it since Dan's indicated that a legend like them would get bigger press, but AC/DC. All of the slashes reminded me of them. And their songs Jailbreak and Dirty Deeds fit what Steven Jay Russell (on this list) did/was accused of.

Any other big Jailbreak songs that might fight my train of thought? Thin Lizzy is the only other one I can think of and I'm not seeing any song of their's that would fix for the 2nd.

I reckon we might just need to find the right photo or painting of Tsar Nicholas II (Anastasia's father). Either in a traditional Russian hat, or a peaked military cap.

Solo starts at around 4:16, but the rest is pretty fun too.

That said, I'm a bit skeptical it's Slash - but then again, his Velvet Revolver song did transfer to RS2014, so maybe there wasn't a licensing issue with keeping his stuff and getting more.

It occurred to me that Anastasia herself wasn't the imposter, but the one being impersonated. The most famous Anastasia imposter was a woman named Anna Anderson. So, here are my two accusatory song titles:

Now that I think of it I wouldn't be surprised if one of his songs with Michael Jackson was in it. They seem to be milking the Jackson estate right now with that new album and hologram.
Songs Slash did with MJ: 1993: Give In To Me (best of the bunch). 1995: D.S. 1997: Morphine. 2001: Privacy. None of them are "Beat It" or "Dirty Diana", but not bad either.

Though it will probably be either 3 of his own songs or 2 of his own and 1 velvet revolver.

Good question.

Three-day weekend here in the US, gang, See you Tuesday. :)

This is a pretty big clue, I think. It does seem to lean towards Slash. If I get Back From Cali I could die a happy man. However, my guess will be a singles pack featuring The aforementioned Slash tune Anastasia and the Foo Fighters The Pretender. That being said, I think I'm totally wrong and the Slash pack is correct. It's a bit of a shame we won't get a track from the Izzy Stradlin/Slash era Guns. I'd take Beggars and Hangers On.

Dagreenskins
05-26-2014, 03:19 AM

my guess will be a singles pack featuring The aforementioned Slash tune Anastasia and the Foo Fighters The Pretender

To me mind, there are at least a couple of reasons why I lean towards the "Slash pack" rather than a "singles" mix-and match.

First, of course, as said previously "Anastasia you're a lie" is more of a direct accusation than "Anastasia, the pretender".

I think it'd be odd for Dan's clue to focus so heavily on a single artist in any singles pack. He used a slash "/" as the separator in his secret message, had a picture of an Anastasia impostor in the background.

Dan's silence is the thing that leaves questions in my mind.

If we've got it right, why hasn't he confirmed it? Then we could get into the song speculation side of things knowing we're getting Slash.

If we've got it wrong, why hasn't he given us a steer to put us back on the rails? Since there's little more following the clues going on, even if we're wrong.

You could say it's because it's the weekend, but he's been around on the forum since we came to the conclusion it's Slash (posted quite a few things on Saturday, while we believed we'd solved it on Friday). And in the previous threads, he's been around much more I think.

Maybe you guys are right and it's just another clue; he's waiting for a big "hey guys, I'm back from Cali!" gag.

In which case, I'm even more convinced it's Slash. :D

A Saterday is not a Sunday. Perhaps he is religious and really doesn't work on sundays. Perhaps he is a few days away, camping, to family, to vegas etc etc. Replying on saterday does not have to mean that he will reply on other free days as welll ;) Just don't worry ;)

05-26-2014, 12:45 PM
Unless I missed it, doesn't the band The Pretenders need to be mentioned as a possibility? Back on the Chain Gang is already in Bandfuse and seems like a possibility. This would deviate from the single artist packs that have been getting released though.

A Saterday is not a Sunday. Perhaps he is religious and really doesn't work on sundays. Perhaps he is a few days away, camping, to family, to vegas etc etc. Replying on saterday does not have to mean that he will reply on other free days as welll ;) Just don't worry ;)

The point is (we think) we worked it out on Friday. So if he was posting on Saturday, he could have said something one way or another. Sunday doesn't enter into it. :p

Unless I missed it, doesn't the band The Pretenders need to be mentioned as a possibility? Back on the Chain Gang is already in Bandfuse and seems like a possibility. This would deviate from the single artist packs that have been getting released though.
Did you read the thread? It's not that long this week.

Bottom line - yes, you missed it. It's two of the song titles that have to do with an impostor, not the band name.

I'm so stoked for this, not a huge fan of his first solo album, but Apocalyptic Love is one of my all time favorites, I'd buy the whole thing given the option. Hopefully we see a Slash hat show up on Facebook soon!

I think in English Zylinder should translate to something like cornerstone:

The hell.... what facebook post? nothing showed up on my timeline in forever from RS (and yeah i do follow them). Always hate it when FB messes that up again. Thnx toymachinesh i'm going to take a look there. And yeah i do know the hint. That's what i used to base my set list from. But hoping and knowing are two very different things :D.

Edit: nvm. just looked on the FB page and there's nothing about any dlc since the last cake stuff. Or i'm really going blind here idk.

Following the list now, Thnx. Haha i never really thought of looking at the german RS page as a not german speaking person. Now i'm really sticking with my set list though. If that isn't him then idk anymore.

I just skimmed through the Song and now im 98%+ Sure that this is Anastasia! I think the Other Songs will be "You're a lie" and Something off the First Album... Mostly "Ghost" or "Back from Cali". A pack with more that 3 Songs would be awesome!

IMO You could make a whole Slash Game with 2 Solo, 2 Velvet Revolver and 2 Snakepit Albums without even having to include the GNR stuff (those rights are in Axl's hands sadly) and still have plenty of interesting material!

* I'll Buy anything anyway because its Slash

** I'll buy it anyway because i own any DLC in existence anyway xD

Between not being able to log in for a few days and the Memorial Day weekend, I missed a lot. :eek:

So much for Slash and bandfuse. :nonchalance:

Count me as mega surprised that RS was able to get Slash. I would have assumed that with Slash being a focus of Bandfuse, he would have signed some sort of exclusivity deal with them. BF may be DOA now, but that wouldn't have affected the exclusivity clause so quickly, i would have thought. Unless Slash has extremely savvy lawyers and they put in some sort of sunset clause that if the game didn't sell a certain number of units, all bets were off.

or he simply licensed the song/video for the game. all of the in-game videos/lessons/whatever that feature him was probably a separate job.

Slash has been around too long to not have his *** covered. If he wants to license his music, I'm pretty sure he has the clout to license on his terms. Exclusivity hurts his bottom line.

Its all been a little quite on the old interweb today. I was expecting an announcement and videos today on facebook, youtube or on hear! Are we sure its definitely Slash and any ideas on the songs yet??

Never mind, just seen the 'Slash Post'

Since Monday was a holiday in the US, the team that posts on the US FB page had the day off and did not post the usual Monday teaser.

For what it's worth, "zylinder" is the German word for "top hat." (http://www.world-of-western.com/de/zylinder-charles_55443.html) The international teams get English text every week, then they localize accordingly.

hehe, yeah I looked that up after I saw the english variant. I still like the Babylonic move from tophat to cornerstone which is also true and a good translation for the german line.
Btw I translated from german to dutch so it went from english to german to dutch and back to english ;)
