Depending on who you ask it’s been either 11 years or 26 years since legendary rock band Guns N’ Roses released an album of new music.
That’s because Axl Rose released the album Chinese Democracy without other original members in 2009.
The last album with Slash and the gang was 1993’s The Spaghetti Incident, but however you count the years between the drought, it’s almost over. Both Slash and bassist Duff McKagan have confirmed an album is in the works with almost all the original crew.
Duff tells Eddie Trunk: “It's real, but the fun part and the cool part about Guns N' Roses is we don't really talk about it, and what happens next just happens. It's never been that band that there's a direct schedule of how we do things. I've heard some magnificent stuff that Axl has -- really cool stuff he's been working on. So I'm excited about the possibilities with that, of course. I don't mean to get anybody rabid. Our day will happen when it happens, that's for sure."
Look for the first taste hopefully by year’s end.
