Slash has seemingly confirmed that new music from Guns N’Roses is on the way.
Speaking to Classic Rock magazine, the guitar icon revealed that frontman Axl Rose is working on new material – after the band’s classic line-up settled their differences to reunite in 2017.
“We’ll see what happens”, Slash said of new material.
““I mean, I have no prospects. Now that we’ve actually mended fences and gotten back together and done this, we’re going to keep it together. Because all the bullshit we’d had that sort of caused all of the shit back in the nineties, there was a lot of outside influence on that, so now that that’s sort of eliminated we’re just left to our own devices. We get along fucking great.”
Confirming Axl’s progress on new material, he added: ““So I think we’re going to go well on into the future.
“I mean, Axl’s got a ton of shit that he recorded already, so we’re going to get in there and just start getting into that thing, and then if we do a record and then do a tour, I could see that cycle going on endlessly.”
Although new material is yet to materialise, the band’s reunion is still going strong – having headlined Download Festival in June this year.
Meanwhile, Slash recently opened up on the 2018 reissue of ‘Apetite for Destruction’, and the decision to remove the track ‘One In A Million’ from the record after decades of being accused of ‘racism and homophobia’.
“We collectively decided that it just didn’t have any place in that box set. It didn’t take long. There wasn’t a big roundtable thing over it”, he admitted.
