Last we heard about potential new Guns N' Roses music was from guitarist Slash back in January. Slash said at the time that "There’s been no definitive answer on anything and I’ll just keep keep to that. Stuff is happening, but there are no specifics," adding later that the band is absolutely writing and recording. They're just not sure what to do with it and how to release it.
Now in an interview with bassist Duff McKagan's wife Susan Holmes McKagan on the Appetite For Distortion podcast, there's been further confirmation of new material. McKagan said the band is working on some new stuff and that she's heard some of it (obviously).
"I will say GN'R have been working fastidiously on killer new stuff. And I can't say much, but I've heard bits and bobs and it's pretty epic. I do wanna spread the good news, but not detailed news, I guess."
The new Guns N' Roses album will be their first to feature McKagan, Slash, and vocalist Axl Rose since their 1993 album "The Spaghetti Incident?". Guns N' Roses would go on to release Chinese Democracy in 2008, which featured a laundry list of musicians that hardly included the band's classic lineup and felt more like a Rose project than anything else.
