SLASH - "I Wrote A Bunch Of New Material While Out On The Road With THE CONSPIRATORS"
June 14, 2019, a year ago
Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash recently spoke with Rock Cellar about the status of a (possible) new GN'R record, touring with his back-up band Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, and Les Paul guitars. Following is an excerpt from the interview.
Rock Cellar: You recently made news. You said in an interview a month or so ago, there’s probably enough songs for a new Guns N’ Roses album, is that true?
Slash: "No, you know, by the time it gets to the place where anybody’s read it, it’s morphed into something more than what I directly said. There is material that Axl’s been working on for a while. It could be enough for a record if we put it all together. The whole thing of Guns N’ Roses getting in the studio and getting this record done — with myself and with Duff (McKagan) and all that — it’s really just getting started. So it’s really hard to say. Everybody’s got demos, and everybody’s got material, and this that and the other, for whatever it could be. It’s just a matter of us focusing on it. So it’s really hard to answer questions on the next Guns thing."
Rock Cellar: Do you have a vision for it beyond the August dates, when you wrap (the Living The Dream tour)?
Slash: "Well, once the Conspirators wrap things up, at some point, my focus is going to be on Guns, as soon as that is over. Because then Guns has a late September / October festival run coming up. So the focus will be totally around Guns. But like I always do, I wrote a bunch of new material while out on the road with the Conspirators. So I have a bunch of new material for Conspirators when the time comes that we can get back in the studio and do the next record. That will be during a break from Guns, like the last one. So there’s a lot of stuff going on."
