Was it? Not to say Blabbermouth couldn't be behind the times, but they just put up the interview in the past 17 hours. The article starts, "In a brand new interview with Rock CellarSlash addressed his recent comment that there are probably enough songs for a new GUNS N' ROSES album. ....."

Read the latest posted by @MillionsOfSpiders was made in Download  where he plays tonight...even he is talking about going to the studio

This sounds like a lot of back tracking and uncertainty to me. Much different than what he said a couple weeks ago. That's how I read it anyway. 

"Slash: No, you know, by the time it gets to the place where anybody’s read it, it’s morphed into something more than what I directly said. There is material that Axl’s been working on for a while. It could be enough for a record if  we put it all together.
The whole thing of Guns N’ Roses getting in the studio and getting this record done — with myself and with Duff (McKagan) and all that — it’s really just getting started. So it’s really hard to say.
Everybody’s got demos, and everybody’s got material, and this that and the other, for whatever it could be. It’s just a matter of us focusing on it.
So it’s really hard to answer questions on the next Guns thing.?

@Blackstar post said this interview was previous this OP thread, in april , before that Slash went Axl's house. You can see in above Blackstar post.

I’m just glad the post about Slash’s amps being taken to Axls house was made. I reckon if that wasn’t posted then it would still be the same “ we’ll see what happens “ comments as before. Since then Slash ,Duff and Fortus comments seem to be more open and positive when talking about work on a new album ,as they know the story about Slash going to Axl’s house is out there.

Unfortunately all the news outlets have picked up the quote from the old interview that was recently published and passing it off as the latest word from Slash. Just spreading misinformation, so irritating.

From a newly released Slash interview (but actually older than the one in the OP of this thread, as it was recorded in April, so probably before he went to Axl's house):

https://www.rockcellarmagazine.com/slash-interview-guns-n-roses-future-guitars/

Rock Cellar: You recently made news. You said in an interview a month or so ago, there’s probably enough songs for a new Guns N’ Roses album, is that true?

Slash: No, you know, by the time it gets to the place where anybody’s read it, it’s morphed into something more than what I directly said. There is material that Axl’s been working on for a while. It could be enough for a record if we put it all together.

Fuck those guys, I'm done with them.

Isn’t that site notorious for stretching quotes way out of context just to write bullshit articles with clickbait headlines? That’s what they always do for starwars, at least.

Don't we already know that, though? They said a few shows and then the studio. I have no reason not to believe them.

They’ve bullshitted us before tho. Back in 2013 someone asked Beta “will there be a new album?” And she said “sure, later this year.” Look how that turned out!

the only difference is that Slash is back now, so there’s renewed interest on a wider scale. Hopefully that renewed interest will be enough to make it happen. We’ll see, though.

It’s your legitimate take on the thing, buddy. However, I’ve said it here before – Slash and Duff back in the band aren’t the "only" difference, they are THE difference. Expecting the band still having the same organizational and financial internal relations like in the UYI era is a bit naive, I think. The guys would have no reason to live under a sole person’s baton, which means they have their say, and therefore when Slash says things are gonna happen, I believe things are gonna happen. 
Yep. This is no NuGNR any longer.

That’s cute. So naive!

Nothing has changed. Gnr will release an album when Axl says so. Period.

As a fan, we have every reason in the world to believe that we are being bullshitted. For decades we've had Axl's employees tell us one thing, however; the end result is always another. If you think Slash & Duff being back in the band will be the difference maker, I have a bridge that I'd like to sell you. And as far as your claim that this is no longer Nu GNR, last I checked, Axl is still the boss, and we still have big nose, blue hair, and Thunder-stinker behind the drum kit.

That's how I guess it is too plus it's not just when the album will get released, it's how, and what will be included in it.

Or maybe it isn't and Slash and Duff do have a say in some decisions but I look at it like they joined Axl's band and they fully understand what the terms are and agreed to it cause they wanted to be in Gn'R again with everything that comes with it. (money and the sheer joy of working again with Axl) Partners, but not equal partners. Axl doesn't seem like the type of person that will give up that kind of control. Creative or financial.

I believe Axl will dictate the musical direction of the album but judging by some of the NITL shows, Axl seems to be really into Slash's playing and Duff is a "team player" so I think they'll find artistic common ground plus Slash and Duff said Axl's unreleased material is great so at least in theory they have a good starting point.

If I had to guess, the new album will be mostly of CD era songs, some as they were with the previous guitarists, and others with contributions with Duff and Slash. There may be a few songs that are actually new with the current members. 

This is all a guess.

theres no money in releasing music anymore. Most of the money bands make is through touring. In order to keep touring, you usually need new music to tour with so yes, they will say or do anything to make millions in the process since this is there job and way to make money

So could Axl release what was already “completed” with NuGuns as a solo LP or EP? Get on the side project train?

I think that would be a great hold over while they work on new material.

That would be a better idea. People can get their Chinese leftovers then they can do a new GnR record with new songs.
