New music with Slash and Duff?

Post by Soulmonster on Tue Feb 02, 2016 9:53 pm

This is an important one for me. If this new hybrid lineup result sin new music, then I am ALL for it. If , on the other hand, it is a pure nostalgia cash-grab thing, then I would have preferred a nuGuns lineup with the potential of new music sometime in the future.

Alan Nieven has apparently claimed Izzy is writing new music with the band. Not sure I believe that, but if it is true, then wooohooooo!!

Let's hope so!
I can imagine the record company being much more interested in a follow-up to Chinese Democracy, when Slash und Duff are involved.
Also, back in 2014 (!) Richard reported that Axl was working on older material dating from the time when Slash was still in the band (which indicates they probably were already planning the reunion back then...):

Fortus shared some interesting new info on Guns N’ Roses’ follow-up to ‘Chinese Democracy.’ “A lot of the new stuff that we’ve been working on; some of the stuff come[s] from nothing and some of the stuff is stuff that we’ve been working on that were ideas that were already there. Some of the stuff Slash did — it was the beginning of the seed of the song that’s been around for a while.”

It would be awesome if true, but I don't trust MSL further than I can throw my fat brother.

So Izzy claimed he has NOT been writing with the band. But rumours now claim Slash is working on unreleased CD music. I wouldn't be surprised if Axl had that as a stipulation, because I still think he would like to get that material out someday, but I would be even less surprised if this also turns out to be nothing but a rumour.

This rumour says an album was recorded before Ron and Dj left. Still, Slash and Duff might be recording parts for it (or have already done so):

http://www.alternativenation.net/guns-n-roses-new-album-recorded-surprising-lineup/

MSL has discussed Guns N’ Roses followup to Chinese Democracy on GNRTruth, revealing that the album was actually completed before Slash and Duff McKagan returned to the band.

“Recording was done before Ron [‘Bumblefoot’ Thal] & DJ [Ashba] left, but not before Bucket[head] & Robin [Finck] left.”

He added, “It was finished before Slash returned. Wouldn’t be hard to add Slash to the record.”

And it's better that way... it's only very rarely that he has something real to say.

http://musicfeeds.com.au/news/best-evidence-yet-guns-n-roses-working-new-album/

A source close to the band has told Music Feeds that the current GNR lineup — that’s Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, rhythm guitarist Richard Fortus, drummer Frank Ferrer and keyboardists Melissa Reese and Dizzy Reed — have been busy writing new material together while on the road, and have plans to record a brand new album this year.

“In terms of a new album being recorded, it’s clearly evident the band would like to record an album after the tour ends, however, we believe it really depends on Angus Young’s plans for AC/DC, of which Axl is keen to do.”

Some "rumours" about new music, sounds at least partly credible to me:


MyGNRForum administrator downzy recently wrote about Axl Rose working on Guns N’ Roses’ new album in 2014 and 2015 in new MYGNRForum posts.

“A lot of effort on Axl’s part went into finishing off many unreleased material in 2014-2015. When Bumble and Ashba left, it kind of left the entire operation in a lurch. There was an internally established goal within the camp to get something out in 2016. That plan was ultimately abandoned once Slash and Duff rejoined the band.

People may always want to believe it’s just Axl, but other egos play a factor. I’m sure Ron and others who left are nice people in their own way, but many have their own issues when it comes to working with others.”

downzy later posted more about the new material.

“It’s not up to debate, as I have first-hand knowledge that Axl was spending a ton of time in the studio in 2015 working on finishing off material that was previously recorded and worked on. Bumblefoot is probably correct in his own assessment that nothing was being written, but that’s from his own perspective. It appears that he just wasn’t involved in the song-writing process for reasons that only Axl could divulge.

We can debate over whether anything was ever going to come out, but my response was to your assertion that ‘new music has been given up on completely.’ If Axl had given up completely, he wouldn’t have been spending all the time working on the material in the vault. I go back to Axl’s interview with Kurt Loder from 1999 where he says he’s not putting in all this work to bury it. We might not care for the timeline that Axl operates with, but I believe he sees an end game while he’s in the studio or composing at his piano.”

http://www.alternativenation.net/guns-n-roses-original-new-album-plan-will-surprise-you/


MyGNRForum administrator downzy posted about new Guns N’ Roses material in a recent MyGNRForum post.

“Yeah, I’m in agreement that it’s highly questionable whether we’re actually going to get anything. If I had to guess (not based on any information passed along from me), Axl fluctuates between wanting to release new material and hanging everything up. As I said in my previous post, if we don’t hear anything from the band that indicates plans to release new material by the end of the year, I wouldn’t hold out much hope. But if we start getting interviews from Axl, Slash, and Duff whether on tour or shortly after that provides a little clarity and intentions going forward, then I think prospects are good.

I thought I’ve been pretty vocal the last couple of years about the fact that Axl was spending a lot of time in the studio. As you guess, I’m not a liberty as to reveal my sources, it’s definitely as rock solid as you can get. I was told multiple times by various sources that a new album was being prepped for a 2016 release and to meet that deadline Axl was spending a lot of time in the studio. And then it was announced that Bumble and Ashba were leaving and any news about new music dried up.

In fact, many sources completely cut communications once rumours of Slash returning to the fold. I think once the personal divide that separated the two was bridged and those involved understood the incredible amount of money within reach those efforts to release new material stopped immediately. Add in Axl’s involvement with AC/DC and the 2014-2015 plans were put on hold.

My hope is that the tours go well and perhaps Axl, Duff, and Slash revisit some of the material Axl was working on since most of it has to be close to completion. Release another album, do another round of touring, and then perhaps call it a day and/or focus on other projects like AC/DC.”
