2018.08.10 - Interview with Slash in the upcoming Classic Rock issue

Post by Blackstar on Fri Aug 10, 2018 4:33 am

Will update the content and the date when the full interview comes out

------------

Slash: Everyone would like to make a new Guns N’ Roses album

Slash reports that Guns N’ Roses have plenty of ideas for a possible album and says “everybody thinks it’s a good idea, and everybody would like to do it”

Slash says that he thinks that everyone in the Guns N’ Roses camp would like to make a new studio album, but due to their touring commitments, they haven’t had the chance to sit down and plan it out yet.

The reunited lineup featuring Slash, Axl Rose and Duff McKagan have been on the road almost constantly on the Not On This Lifetime tour since getting back together in 2016, leaving fans wondering if a studio return was on the cards.

And while Slash says “there’s no shortage of ideas from everybody involved” they still have to properly plan out their future movements.

He tells the upcoming issue of Classic Rock magazine: “When Guns N’ Roses started doing its thing on the Not In This Lifetime tour, then the kind of writing I was doing was actually more tailored towards Guns, because that was the environment I was in. 

“But, then we took the break and I started thinking about doing the Conspirators record.
“When it comes down to it, a riff is a riff. It could work in either context. But with The Conspirators, anything I come up with, Myles Kennedy will come up with something – and that’s why it’s such a diverse record.  

“With Guns, you have no idea where that’s going to go either, so it’s really hard to focus on one or the other, but I feel like while I’m out with Guns I’m thinking about Guns stuff. When I’m out with Conspirators I’m thinking of Conspirators.

“I’ve been doing The Conspirators for eight years now, so there’s a certain kind of rhythm that I’ve gotten into with doing that.  

“With Guns, we’ve just started to touch the surface of what that’s going to all be, so I haven’t really fallen into that groove yet. Right now, there’s more of a question mark around that than with Conspirators.”

Asked if he’s started to write material for a new Guns N’ Roses album, Slash replies: “Well, it’s not been announced because there’s nothing official, so there’s nothing to talk about.

“I think everybody thinks it’s a good idea, and everybody would like to do it. There’s no shortage of ideas from everybody involved, but we’ve been so busy on the road there hasn’t really been time to go in and sit down and go, ‘Okay, we’re going to make a record.’”

Slash is the cover star of the upcoming issue of Classic Rock magazine, which will go on sale from August 21.

I'm not really, because:

Hadn't we heard the same kinda talk from Fortus & Co. for years? Suspect

Oh yes, don't me wrong. I am not excited yet. But I am starting to get to the point where I might start feeling excited again. So it is still a bit to go Very Happy

I'm not even starting to get there (yet). Maybe if both Duff and Axl will confirm that they are interested too and will book studio time, then I might start getting excited...

I believe Duff and Slash would agree to do it if Axl suggested it. They might be a bit wary but if Axl really is motivated I think they'd be happy to give it a go. So yeah, Axl is the crucial part here. And, I also think that at the first time of problems in the studio (Axl not showing up, fights over direction), Duff and Slash would just leave.

Fortus saying it is one thing, Slash is something completely different.

Granted, Slash's word has more "weight" than Fortus' (possibly not just in our ears, but in Axl's too), but this:
I think everybody thinks it’s a good idea, and everybody would like to do it.

...is just the same kinda "vague" talk we've heard for years now. Silent Cry

But Slash says it for the first time, and has plenty of reasons for it, considering they really haven't gotten the time yet with the massive amount of touring. The NewGNR guys were saying it for years with plenty of breaks in between tours.

Plus he is in general way more positive about the reunion and about Axl than I thought he would be.

Yes, he is. Watching the band in concert you don't really see much interaction between them, or emotions at all from Slash, but yes, what he says is really positive...unless he is just playing the media. We'll see if whatever friendship they have regained will result in more than just words. Because, you know, it would be easy to show what he feels. More than words is all that's needed to make it real. Then he wouldn't have to say he love him, 'cause he would already know. More than words. La di da, da di da, di dai dai da.

So, just in case it wasn't understood, I was just jokingly paraphrasing the lyrics to 'More Than Words' above there.
