Axl Rose Promises New Guns N' Roses Album
For a man whose status as a rock and roll hermit is somewhat notorious, Axl Rose has been bizarrely public in recent weeks. First, there was the singer's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last week. Now, Rose has been talking to USA Today, giving information on the new Guns N' Roses album and his relationship with the band's classic line-up in the process. Speaking on the new album, Axl stated: "All the guys are writing, and we recorded a lot of songs over the years. We'll figure out what we feel best about. 'Chinese Democracy' was done in piecemeal with one person here and one there at different times. 'Appetite For Destruction' was the only thing written with lyrics and melody fitting the guitar parts at the same time. After that, I got a barrage of guitar songs that I was supposed to put words to, and I don't know if that was the best thing for Guns. I do want to lean more toward lyrics and melody." He also blamed the lengthy production process of "Chinese Democracy" on the politics of the music industry: "I had to deal with so many other things that don't have to do with music but have to do with the industry. There's such a loss of time. It was more about survival. There wasn't anyone to work with or trust. Someone would come in to help produce and the reality was they just wanted to mix it and get it out the door. They had a different agenda. [The next album] will come out sooner." And when asked if he could see a truce with the classic line-up of Guns N' Roses in the future, Axl had the following to say: "I feel that ball's not in my court. I'm surviving this war, not the one who created this war." Excited about the prospect of the new GN'R record? Or would you rather hear something from the original band? Let us know in the comments.
