    During an appearance earlier today (Friday, February 22) on SiriusXM's "Trunk Nation", Duff McKagan said that a new GUNS N' ROSES album could happen in the not-too-distant future, remarking: "I heard some new material and there's been some jams going around, and that's the next step for us, for the GN'R thing." Asked by host Eddie Trunk "how real" the potential is for a new GUNS N' ROSES record, Duff replied: "Oh, it's real. But the fun part and the cool part about GUNS N' ROSES is we don't really talk about it, and what happens next just happens. It's never been that band that there's a direct schedule of how we do things." He continued: "I've heard some magnificent stuff that Axl [Rose, vocals] has — really cool stuff he'd been working on. So I'm excited about the possibilities with that, of course. I don't mean to get anybody rabid. [A new GUNS N' ROSES album] will happen when it happens, that's for sure." McKagan also said that he was surprised by the massive success of GUNS N' ROSES' "Not In This Lifetime" tour, which lasted for two and half years. "Anytime I play a gig, if there's three people in there, I'm, like, 'Wow! They came to see me play,'" he said. "Nothing's changed. I'm just always so grateful and astonished. Some of these gigs we played, a lot of 'em — most of 'em, if not all — were astonishing how many people came and were so into it." http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/duff-mckagan-says-axl-rose-has-come-up-with-some-magnificent-stuff-for-new-guns-n-roses-album/?fbclid=IwAR1d_JZGlL-2o7baaQM-MpsWqzbLTQi-_c7I8eVZ9OlV-4o3g7Cl5FQG4P0

    It was cringey when NuGuns did it, and it was just as bad when they did it in 2016. I thought it brought some of the 'Vegas tackiness' from the residency shows to the 2016 shows. It's cheesy as hell to see strippers behind some 50+ year olds on a nostalgia tour. That's the kinda shit I'd expect from Motley Crue

    ... When family and friends ask you "whats new?" you include an update on Slash mentioning a new Guns album.

    Slash gave another interview to a German newspaper. https://www.zeit.de/kultur/musik/2019-03/guns-n-roses-slash-gitarrist-interview/seite-3 The last two questions were: Until mid August you're on world tour with SMKC. Do you have plans for the time after that? Slash: when I'm back home, I will sit down with the guys in guns n roses and focus on a new record. You haven't worked on it yet? Slash: No, but I know everyone involved wants to do this record. We're talking about it and Axl already has a ton of material which he produced himself. I think we're in a phenomenal form to get started.

    At a GNR show I was sat next to a group of women, a real "ladies night' vibe. Got chatting with one and she looked at her watch and said "its about to start!" I mentioned the late starts and she got mad at me - like shooting the messenger. Got all in a huff and got her group in a tizzy. They decided to leave instead of wait. They abruptly got up and filed out, each one hitting me in the face with their ass and hand bag. About 20 minutes later the show started

    It's easy for some of us to sit behind a screen and type that sort of oorah stuff, but a lot harder to put it into practice. Now, let me preface what I'm about to say by admitting that I prescribe to the whole "confront and conquer" way of doing things. It's the way I've always done everything in my personal life. But I also understand that genetics and life circumstances play a heavy roll in my ability to do so. Axl Rose was an un-medicated, manically depressed teenager/young man who was raped by his father and persecuted by most of his family. He dropped out of high school and hitchhiked across the country before he was even a legal adult. Raised by the streets. Did gallons of drugs... you get the picture. He was about as far away from "mentally sound" as a person can get. By all accounts, he shouldn't even be alive. The guy even tried to kill himself once (could have been more, we don't know) by swallowing a bucket of pills. He was a mental headcase, with an itch for death. People like that? People who are mentally fucked up beyond all recognition? They don't see things like you do. Their reality is vastly different. It's not possible for most of those people to "wake up" and get their shit together. If they do, it's usually a case of luck.

    First up, we are honored to speak with punk icon, Henry Rollins. We discuss his involvement in the docuseries PUNK on the EPIX channel (produced by Iggy Pop). Henry also shares his feelings on the movement today and answers if he thinks Guns N' Roses was punk. Our second interview is with 25-year-old KC Nash Kelly, the nephew of the late West Arkeen. KC shares intimate feelings about his uncle and the rest of his family. Why haven't we heard more of West's recordings? Why were the GNR songs West wrote taken off Spotify? We have a raw and powerful discuss about his late uncle West. iHeartRadio --> https://ihr.fm/2F2RURZ Spreaker --> https://bit.ly/2TGDdgt SoundCloud --> https://bit.ly/2EMbcdS Stitcher --> https://bit.ly/2HnXGhC Google Play --> https://bit.ly/2HpM7Zj

    Let’s be REALLY CLEAR - having the slightest urge to regularly share a bed with a child you have no familial relation too, free of any sinister context, is quite simply (and fucking obviously) NOT a thing. Let alone with multiple random children (...oh and who mostly happen to be of a similar physical type). Seriously WHAT THE FUCK.

    This sort of tough guy shit gets me down. The leading cause of death in men aged 20 to 30 is suicide. This sort of attitude of basically telling people to harden up is a huge issue in society. Depressed? Just cheer up. Anxious? Don't worry about it. This attitude belittles mental health issues and leads to people feeling that a condition they have, often caused by a chemical imbalance, is their fault. It's so easy to sit at a computer and be a macho man about these issues but you're really just displaying a major lack of understanding. A little bit of empathy wouldn't go astray - try to understand the difficulties other people can have in life. Just comparing Axl to other musicians who handle things better is not reasonable. People deal with things differently. Check out www.beyondblue.org.au Might be time to update your thinking. Can't speak for others but your tough guy act is pretty unimpressive to me.

    Axl's ability to make up excuses for everything in the world is simply unparalleled. A tip of the hat.

    He wishes he had MORE time?! Fuck me Axl, if everyone did everything based on whether or not they felt 100 million percent comfortable then nothing would ever get done, you think fighters feel 100% comfortable during a ring walk, or football players 5 mins before kick off? Of course not but y'know what they show up and put a shift in cuz of this word called professionalism. 'work on himself', fuck that new age hippie shit, the way you work on yourself is you work and then after a lifetime of said work you have a body of work to look back on so when its REALLY time to reflect, in the nursing home with the pissbag strapped to your thigh, you can cast your mind back and go, OK, what was all that about? Then turn to the body of work and cultural contribution and go 'right, yeah, THATS what that was about'. And that applies for everybody, from lead singers to shelf stackers, we're all fuckin' cogs in the overall machinery of society, if every shelf stacker in the world wanted to sit inside with a big bag of weed and a TV lisence to 'work on' themselves before they felt right to go out and fuckin' put a shift in there'd be some empty fuckin' shelves across the planet in much the same way that if every artist worth his salt stayed indoors working on themselves and reached their fuckin' 60s having released what amounts to 3 full albums (albeit one quite large one out of that) and an EP well then our culture would be a lot less richer one.

    If you lost the interest on the band cause of the lack of interesting and creative stuff goin on but still visit a fan forum of this same band daily. Oh, and still wears a battle jackt with a huge NITL patch on the back even if all your friends mock you cause the band is a joke

    I found this horrible, old song targeted at Axl. Recorded by some guy named Scott Savage back in 2008. On an album called....."Chinese Democracy"? It's available on Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play and other services incredibly. What do you all think? I feel like you guys might find it funny. (I re-uploaded because I know international users have problems viewing videos like this)

    I just don't understand how Rose could look at Gilby who had ''Cure Me'' and ''Tijuana Jail'' - both great rockers - and go, ''I don't really want to write with this guy'', then look at Tobias and go, ''yip, he is my guy''.

    Look, the man made lovely fuckin' songs, thats all well and good but a fuckin' grown man that goes around sleeping in the same bed as kids, to me, is a fuckin' wrong 'un. Its weird and fuckin' creepy and just because you grow up listening to a man sing songs well and he talks like a fairy don't mean to say that he's Jesus fuckin' Christ come off the cross, most especially not when he likes sleeping with little boys. And if that was literally any other male human being on the planet no one would have a problem with calling him a wrong 'un cuz thats what he was. I like a lot of peoples songs, in fact I've been called damn near obsessive about music and all that but I ain't that fuckin' in love with no one that much to where it'd blind me to what that cunt was about.

    Just for clarification, in regards to Axl's claims: He claimed that some of the stuff was his own direct memories, it didn't all come through regression therapy. And some of the things he said about the context of the story are facts that can be confirmed from other sources - unknown if they were among the stuff he had memories of or he was informed about it somehow (e.g. from members of his family). Maybe he had some real memories and some of them were "misled" which he believed as true. But definitely it isn't all a "made-up" story. It has also been implied that there's more to it than what he said. Personally I believe that something happened, not necessarily what he said, mainly because of the other things that have been implied which are more believable. But there can't be evidence for things like that. Anyway, I think he probably regretted that he went public about this because of the reaction and that's why he stopped talking.

    Arnie is GnR fan, it was him who asked to do the ''Gun N Roses'' scene and have GnR in the soundtrack of the movie. He sure still is a GnR fan, he was at the Coachella. He should get GnR to do a cameo in the next T movie. And a cool pic from the good old times.

    Management at the time were struggling to finish the album, they couldn’t get Axl anywhere on time or where they needed him. He went off the radar for long periods of time and the label wanted results. So management went ahead and started booking for a massive tour, essentially told Axl it’s going to bankrupt him if he doesn’t show, and the blame will be on him. Slash and Duff and Izzy were losing their minds in drugs as they had no idea what to do with their free time. So it was reported to Axl that his “break” was killing his band mates and so he also got blamed for their addictions. So without much preparation Axl started the tour and did each show on his terms. He held everyone hostage to his demands seeing as nobody cared about his well being going into the tour and early on damaged his voice. So the UYI tour limped on with a super pissed off Axl.

    Okay, so I thought I'd stop being lazy and reveal some information about the Tulsa litho. I've known this information since about July of last year but just never got around to sharing it since it had originally been shared with me in confidence. But since the topic came up again here recently, I decided it might be interesting enough to make sure it was okay to divulge this information and I have received the all-clear to do so. The Tulsa lithograph was originally designed to be used for Cleveland (the artist's home city), however was eventually bumped further down the tour schedule to be used for Tulsa and was appropriately modified. The original Cleveland design showcases the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge's iconic stone statues entitled "Guardians of Traffic" and was originally designed to be 12in x 36in specifically to be able to display more of the statues and in turn compliment and echo the vertical nature of the guitar illustration. The original Cleveland litho looked like this: but was obviously turned into this:

    Here is the rest of the interview. Enjoy! _____ I: “What of that did you experience?” Slash: “We met with animal welfarists there, but we didn't see any poachers. Instead a lot of elephants. Whilst a visit to Tanzania we had a confrontation. We were driving through a national park, when suddenly an angry male elephant came running towards us. It was dangerous because I didn't know exactly if he was serious. We were in an inconvenient position with our car, where could not have reversed quick enough to get out of the way. As it turned out, the elephant just bluffed. It seemed he wanted to make sure we got his point. We then slowly left his sight. I can tell you – that scared the shit out of me. I: “On Instagram, it is you who scares others. You show werewolves, vampires, zombies, post quotes by Poe and congratulate Stephen King for his birthday...” Slash: “A lot of things like that, yeah. (laughs) I'm also interested in that stuff in real life. In 2013, I founded a production company to make horror movies. “Nothing Left to Fear” was the first one. It is of course an ironic title – there is lot to fear in that movie. I still have to shiver to this day. Back then, I asked David Bowie to play a priest in it. His health was really bad at the time, so unfortunately it didn't happen. I didn't really know how sick he really was. Since then I worked on many follow-up projects, with a few deals being made just recently. You know, I always have to do something.” I: “Stephen King once told me what drives him to write horror stories. Everyone knows they have to die. Horror stories are an exercise for the unfathomable – we scare ourselves safely, knowing nothing can happen while reading.” Slash: “Well, that is a really interesting take on the horror genre.” I: “What fascinates you with horror?” Slash: “The fact that gloomy stories are still kind of a taboo always fascinated me. Other than that horror gives me an adrenaline rush – if something scares me to death. I love horror for similar reasons I love Rock'n'Roll for: Because both are directed against a mainstream way of thinking. Many horror stories are composed very clever because they challenge your imagination. But still horror is kind of the ugly duckling genre. But still it has fascinated me since I was little.” I: “In his book 'Doctor Sleep' King examined the realm between life and death. You told doctors similar things, when they brought you back to life after pronouncing you clinically dead after a drug cocktail. Does that creep you out when thinking about it sometimes?” Slash: “There are moments when I think to myself 'Man, how did I survive that?'. But basically I don't really think about what happened back then.” I: “Following those excesses you began to have heart problems in your mid 30's and got a defibrillator. How do you feel today?” Slash: “That was also a thing I was really lucky with. My heart is fine today. My defibrillator isn't even activated at the moment. I'm in good health and have left that phase behind.” (pauses for a bit then grabs his neck and screams AAAAARGH and lets himself sink into the armchair – and laughs). I: “Well, you do have humor. Slash, guitar heroes like you, had to make way for Hip-Hop artists that seem to fascinate the youth more.” Slash: “I know, my son who is 14 is really into Hip-Hop. He records tracks that way with beats and everything.” I: “Do you feel like one of the last of your kind?” Slash: “Well, playing guitar is just my thing. That's how I started, it drives me, since I've been a kid. Naturally, I noticed how tastes in music have shifted. But that's just normal. Every young generation has to make the time period it grows up in their own. Today's kids want to experience a kick, like I did when I first listened to The Kinks or freaking Led Zeppelin. Whatever new is being developed – I can only watch as it happens. But do you want to know what really grinds my gears?” I: “What is it?” Slash: “The missing integrity of the music industry was there all along when I started. But there was a bigger will to take risks. We wanted to express ourselves in our own way and fight the commercial industry. Today it seems, many young musicians want to be part of the commercial standard as soon as possible. Many say: 'How can we get commercially successful? Tell us how?' Hahaha. I'd say it was a bit different with us back then.”

    I did my best to quickly translate the first part of the interview into english. Bare in mind it's 5:30 am in Germany right now and I am tired as f*ck. If I can I will translate the rest after some sleep. Enjoy! Slash, everlasting guitar god, has a weakness for gloomy stories. Here, he talks about werewolves, vampires and defibrillators – whilst hinting at a new Guns N' Roses record. Before it can start, a bodyguard has to inspect the suite in the deluxe hotel in Frankfurt. The muscular man looks around, his voice polite but distinct. “Salt-and-Vinegar-Chips” would be nice, he says before disappearing – telling us the guy we're waiting for will be there in five minutes. Slight semblance of panic on the hotel employee's face: all the munchies you could think of were there, except for salt-and-vinegar-chips. And those aren't easy to get in five minutes. Enter Slash. Rock-'n'-roll-eccentric and guitar legend who has been reunited with his hardrock band Guns N' Roses for over two years now. Their respective reunion tour is now over. But because Slash doesn't like to get bored, he plays more concerts with his solo band The Conspirators. He doesn't wear his notorious top-hat this afternoon, contrary to a pair of sunglasses, his wild mane barely tamed by a beanie. Chips? Well he doesn't want those right now anyway. But he would very much like a coffee he adds politely. It takes some time for the coffee machine to do its duty and fill half a cup. Slash then asks if he could have it double. He laughs as he sees the worried face of the journalist who fears running out of time for the interview. “Don't you worry. Once I drank this, I'll talk much faster.” he says “We'll make up for the time then easily.”. I: “Slash, you have lived the rock-'n'-roll excess to the maximum for long enough. After overdoses, near-death-experiences, you had...” Slash: “Yeah, that was a long time ago.” I: “15 years ago you told us, you had experienced such problems only when tours were over. Now you just a two-year-comeback-tour with Guns N' Roses and went on with your solo band afterwards. Do you always have to work to not crash?” Slash: “That's what's best for me. It is not stressful for me to go directly from Perth, Australia to Frankfurt, Germany and continue to play. It's like everything's in the flow. What else should I do? Every time I finished a tour, it ended badly. Sure, after working for a long time, I also like to come home and not have to do anything. That only lasts for about a week, though. After that I go crazy, if I don't have a million things I could do. I: “With Guns N' Roses you played for 60.000 to 100.000 people, but with your Conspirators you play to 3000 fans in the Stadthalle Offenbach. Does that bother you?” Slash: “No, because I have always played these small arenas and concert halls before the comeback. It was more the other way around that I had to readjust from there when it all went back to stadiums with Guns in 2016.” I: “Axl Rose and you were seen as the biggest wranglers of rock for over 20 years, before reconciling for Coachella and a follow-up tour. Many wonder how you could bare with each other for more than two years-” Slash: “Seriously, the last tour was the most fun I had with Guns N' Roses since the 80's. Not in this lifetime would I have thought to have so much fun with them again. For the first time, I felt something like intimacy at the stadium shows. The big Open Airs of the 90's made me feel disconnected from the massive audiences. I can't really explain my different perception, though. There were definitely totally different vibes from the audiences this time.” I: “Maybe because no-one could believe seeing Rose and you together on stage again?” Slash: “Could be, yes. Maybe back in the day, fans weren't really sure what to expect from our concerts.” I: “The frontman would disappear from stage, coming on stage hours too late or get in fights with fans...” Slash: “Today, the fans just want to see us together again.” I: “They say, you're planning a new record with Guns N' Roses. Is there any truth to it?” Slash: “At the moment, there is a lot of activity focusing on it.” I: “What does that mean?” Slash: “The focus clearly lies on it. Most definitely. A lot of energy is put towards the idea of making a new album possible. We will see. Until it happens, I continue to work with my other band, the Conspirators, which is also a good, authentic rock-'n'-roll band.” I: “Let's talk about your solo songs. An early Conspirators song “Beneath the Savage Sun” is written from the perspective of an elephant hunted by poachers. How do you come up with something like that?” Slash: “Our singer Myles Kennedy and I had visited South Africa and other African countries several times. We saw many elephants and informed ourselves through animal welfarists about the problem with poachers. That stuck with us for longer. Look, I'm not a big animal rights activist or something. Although I do support many animal welfare organizations and am member on the board of the Los Angeles zoo, I do not hold speeches or read any statements. Nevertheless, I condemn poaching, when it comes to slaughtering elephants because of greed for ivory.”

    Bootlegs and lyrics have been on the Internet for as long as I can remember (and I've been online and involved in the online GNR community since '96). GNR has been making hundreds of millions of dollars from its highly lucrative reunion tour and through its likely sponsorship arrangements. I find it crazy that anyone would suspect that members of GNR or those employed to represent their interests would, in 2018 and 2019, be orchestrating these takedowns despite the fact that these materials have been available and online for years, in some case decades. Also examine and consider how the takedowns occurred soon after the leaks from last year. Those who followed that little escapade know it was the result of one foolish idiot who has a history of being a pain in everyones ass, who has long been shunned by the community at large, and has every incentive in his warped and petty little mind to abuse the online reporting mechanisms for copyrighted materials available to everyone. Lastly, I've been told by well connected sources that GNR and its management have a zero comment policy on almost all matters, from the trivial to the significant. They just don't comment on this stuff, even when, and this is my opinion, it is to their own detriment. We can speculate why. It has been argued by some that commenting on one matter would require clarifying all (a logic I don't agree with), while another line of thought is that they refuse to comment on matters they do not wish to bring attention to (which is what I believe). There's some who believe that management doesn't comment on these and other matters because this is Axl's preference; others believe the lack of communication is to ensure that Axl isn't made aware of what is occurring that would result in a whole other set of problems. Again, without clarification it's difficult to know for sure. But I would caution anyone who believes that because there's a lack of comment or clarification on this matter that it translates to coordination or involvement by GNR in these matters. The lack of public comment is just how they operate on all matters, even stuff that one would think they would want to set the record straight. EDIT: Apologies for the poor grammar/sentence structure (which is largely fixed). I write quickly and am always looking at two or three apps/windows on my computer, resulting in me getting lost at times in a stream of consciousness. I generally fix posts after I publish them).

    I dunno if it is "old schoolmarms" as much as it is "not tacky" lol GNR in their 20's living on the streets of LA bringing their stripper friends and girlfriends to dance on stage? Authentic because that was their lifestyle. A bunch of multi-millionaire guys in their mid 50's hiring 20 year old models from an agency on stage to dance? Tacky af IMO

    This is how it’s done. Take note America. Semi-automatic weapons will be banned – attorney general New Zealand’s attorney general, David Parker, has warned of a global rise in extremism and said the government would ban semi-automatic rifles, the New Zealand Herald has reported. He reportedly made the remarks at a vigil in Auckland’s Aotea Square to loud cheers. “There is a dimming of enlightenment in many parts of the world,” he is quoted as saying, asking how can it be right that the atrocity was livestreamed and broadcast by social media companies. His comments follow an earlier promise from the prime minister that gun laws will be changed. She said the main suspect had five firearms on him, including two semi-automatic weapons.

    At the same time, you can't begrudge fans for thinking whatever they want if the band doesn't do anything to address the situation and correct the record.
