A lot of quotes from 1995-1996 (AFTER Snakepit) indicate that GN'R was working on an album after Snakepit. Axl described it as the "bluesiest" material since Aerosmith Rocks. Matt described it as having the rawness of AFD and the sophistication of the UYIs, but with a groove, and claimed in 1996 that the band had recorded 7 songs and were intending to record 7 more. Duff said the album would be 12 hard rock songs with "no ballads", and Slash called the material "mean" and said in August 1996 that between he, Axl and Duff, GN'R had around 80 new songs. I have three questions.
1) Do you know if any of this is true-- Did Guns ever truly record any material after Snakepit, but before Slash left? What did it sound like?
2) Was anything recorded during the Zakk Wylde sessions--What did it sound like if so?
3) Has any of the material (whether a lick, riff or a full song that you recall) from this era ever surfaced on Slash/Duff/VR records? If you cannot answer this, that is totally understandable.
Thank you for all you contribute to the community and for your awesome book and your honesty.
