Guns N’ Roses has been working on their first new album with guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan since 1993 «The Spaghetti Incident?» for a few years now. Though it looks like that wait might finally come to an end in 2021.
«We did a week of initial pre-production, and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year,» he said. «I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff. And prior to that, Duff and I did some jamming and we also worked on the Guns record, and I’ve had a couple of ancillary recordings and jams on top of that, so there’s been a lot of stuff going on. I’m really not good at slowing down and just sitting around.»
«I would like to think that we’d have some new stuff out next year — from both camps, I guess. It’s hard to say, but I would like to think we’ll have stuff out next year, yeah.»
Other than Slash, last we heard about a Guns N’ Roses record was from Susan Holmes McKagan, wife of bassist Duff McKagan, who said «I’ve heard bits and bobs and it’s pretty epic.»
