GN'R to 'Take Some Time Off,' Dizzy Reed Announces
In a new interview with Billboard, Guns N' Roses keyboard player Dizzy Reed has announced that the band will be taking some time off.

Reed, who joined the group in 1990, notes that it may be 2015 before we hear anything from GN'R:

"Guns are definitely taking some time off, but we'll see. I'm not sure if we're gonna be doing anything else this year. Hopefully we will, but definitely next year. We can't stay away too long."

However, he refuted rumors that Guns N' Roses are breaking up for good, stating:

"You know, so much of that crap gets out there, you can't believe any of it. At this point, having been in the band for so long, nothing surprises me. When I hear things like that I immediately dismiss them until I hear further. I'm never really concerned enough to even ask where it came from, or why, because if it's that important I'll be getting a phone call."

Reed also commented on the status of a new Guns N' Roses album, noting that the band has been working on new songs, while finishing up music left over from the "Chinese Democracy" sessions:

"I think a lot of it is either finished or close to being finished - it's just a matter of picking which songs and where and when and in what order. And if there's other things that come up that are worthy enough to add to that, then that's gonna happen, too."

He noted that there is, as yet, no set release date for the follow up album:

"No, I gave up on that a long time ago, with the last record. It'll come out when it comes out, when it's ready."
