Orchestral Arranger PAUL BUCKMASTER Collaborates With GUNS N' ROSES?

Acclaimed orchestral arranger and Grammy-award winner Paul Buckmaster has apparently worked on arrangements for four songs that are slated to appear on the long-awaited GUNS N' ROSES album, "Chinese Democracy". According to Buckmaster's official discography/list of credits, which can be viewed at this location*, he has served as the arranger and conductor on the tracks "Blues", "Twat", "Madagascar" and "Prostitute", all of which are expected to surface on the much-anticipated CD, due next year via Interscope.

As previously reported, legendary Italian film composer Marco Beltrami ("Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines", "Resident Evil", "Scream", "Blade 2") has also provided orchestral arrangements for four tracks that are tentatively set to appear on "Chinese Democracy". According to Beltrami's official web site, MarcoBeltrami.com, the four cuts the composer was asked to work on have the working titles of "Seven", "Leave Me Alone", "General" and "Thyme".

"Chinese Democracy" will feature the band's first new music since "Oh My God", the group's contribution to the soundtrack to the 1999 movie "End of Days".

GUNS N' ROSES' last studio album was a covers CD, "The Spaghetti Incident?", which was released in 1993.

According to this article from 2005, it was in August and September 2002:

That's interesting. Beltrami did his work in the fall of 2002, too.

Beltrami said here that he had thought the album would be released in September. So he probably worked in spring or summer 2002.

Very Happy

It wouldn't make sense, though, for him to expect that the album would be released as early as September if he had worked on it in August. I assume it takes at least two months after a record is completely finished (mixed and mastered) for it to be released.

Yes, that makes sense.

Anyway, both Beltrami and Buckmaster was involved around the same time, likely adding finishing touches to songs before the album's release.
