New Slash interviews (The Times, Classic Rock)

Recommended Posts

Thank you @Blackstar

Great article. 

When you read that Rose' biological father was murdered and his stepfather was a violent individual...you cannot help to think why he is the way he is.

Interesting, he was trying to promote SMKC but the article was basically about GNR and his relation with Axl. I guess it will be that way, you cannot ignore the big elephant in the room.

Will Slash be fired for not mentioning Axl's jokes?

Slash is nostalgic for the early years when the five members [with Izzy Stradlin, the rhythm guitarist] of Guns N’ Roses led druggy, poverty-stricken lives with no responsibility for anyone but each other. (...) “It was us against them and we were our only support system,” says Slash, looking amused at the memory. “We found a little storage unit with a sliding door that faced an alley and that was our band lodging. We were in a very different place from the LA glam bands like Poison. “We knew we were the best at what we did, even when we were doing the opening set on a Monday night at the Troubadour. We just had the chemistry, and if that happens once in your life, you’re fortunate.”

 

slash nostalgic?

so maybe there is still a chance for a reunion?

 Can someone please maybe put an asterisk or some other unique alert in the title when one of these interviews produces a relevant revelation of news or information not previously known.  Thanks!

Anybody who can unlock this interview can't read the whole thing because they have a paywall. 

Merged this with a topic someone started on it prior. I think everything you need is in the OP of this thread :)

@BlackstarThanks for posting the entire article! I enjoyed reading how the times with Axl now are different from the 80's and 90's. I'm sure Axl would say the same about Slash. They've grown up. We all have. 

Now I'm hoping for some new music from GnR.

i say Slash leaves the band in 2020, Duff in 2023, Axl reunite with DJ Ashba & Bumblefoot and Tommy Stinson in 2025. Chinese Democracy Round II starts now

He did another interview for the next issue of Classic Rock and he talks more about new music:

https://www.loudersound.com/news/slash-everyone-would-like-to-make-a-new-guns-n-roses-album

“I think everybody thinks it’s a good idea, and everybody would like to do it. There’s no shortage of ideas from everybody involved, but we’ve been so busy on the road there hasn’t really been time to go in and sit down and go, ‘Okay, we’re going to make a record.’”

EDIT: I updated the the title of the thread and added this interview to the OP.

Slash is the new Fortus. Confirmed :lol:

Huh, thanks to instagram we have oodles of photos of Slash and Duff just sitting around near spreads of food in their separate rooms. They haven't been busy with interviews. They cant just walk around town. Mel is so bored she is left to discuss every piece of candy that she consumes, at length.  So, I do not believe that they have been too busy to discuss an album.
