    CDII probably will look like

    1.) Absurd

    2.) The General

    3.) OMG

    4.) Soul Monster

    5.) Hard Skool

    6.) Perhaps

    7.) Atlas Shrugged

    Throw a few covers in there a Duff song, maybe an unknown CD era song from 2006 or two and we have a great album.

    Hey I’ll take that if you guarantee me OMG makes the cut lol

    He's not really being vague there though - he's saying, pretty plainly, that they haven't written anything together. 

    I wonder if this interview becomes problematic if it gets back to Axl. I was shocked how Slash so easily admitted this instead of giving the usual programmed gnr response. Yea we’ve been working on a bunch of stuff and just trying to figure out how to release in these times of 2021

    Bumble butchered nearly everything he touched IMO.

    Although to be fair with the May Catcher solo we heard, that was apparently all chopped up and edited, he didn't play it that way in the studio. That just goes to show something either sounds good or it doesn't, no matter how it comes to together. That's why I'm not so concerned with Slash and Duff added their stems to old Axl songs. If it sounds good, I'm all for it.

    Yea and sometimes you can’t polish a turd. As with Hard Skool

    Haha you’re full of it on this. Slash can put the extra work in but Axl gets slack…the dude can’t even be bothered to put the normal amount of work in to attend rehearsals. Tour after tour, year after year, the guy comparatively sounds like crap for paying customers at the beginning shows because he can’t be bothered to get in proper singing shape beforehand.   



    I don’t disagree but it’s definitely harder on the singer

    We expect the same from Axl too right?

    That’s a little different. Axl gets some slack because as a singer it’s hard to control his vocal performance. It was hard to do in his 20s let alone @60. Slash can certainly put the extra work in

    Here’s the thing regardless of who you think is better suited for particular songs, did Richard even play more lead than DJ Ashba when he was in the band? I’m not sure but I doubt it. If you like CD songs played live then the current set up is what you’re gonna get because I don’t think anyone else is playing lead guitar as long as Slash is in the band. 

    Agreed and that’s how it should be just wish Slash would step it up and show a little more pride and effort

    My twopence... not a huge Chinese Democracy fan. I think there are a few good tracks on it. I am however a supporter of the current lineup playing material from the album. That said I wasn't overly impressed with Slash on TWAT and agree with other posters that perhaps Richard should be given the lead parts on some/most/all songs from the album. The guitar playing on CD is very different stylistically from Slash and I'm not sure his blues based approach necessarily works with those songs. Just an opinion though! Will however call out Slash for contributions on Hard Skool, which to my ears, drastically improve that song tenfold.

    The problem isn’t Slash being more blues based. He could’ve killed it on Buckets bluesy Sorry solo. Problem is the incoherent, uninspired, unprepared noodling

    In years gone by, I thought that an impossibility and held, axl the perfectionist, in high quality control regard. But these two releases has popped that illusion. Now that's a shame given I love gnr so much. 

    Poor mixing aside, The more I listen to released HS the more one dimensional the song becomes. I don't really how else to say it, does that make sense? 

    It makes perfect sense to me. I stopped listening to Hard Skool. Between the subpar production, the drums and the lack of depth. I actually listened to Absurd a lot more

    Battleground is a really nice solo!

    For me, he hasn't written a 10/10 solo since VR and more specifically Fall to pieces, Dirty little thing, Slither but there have obviously been some other good ones on the solo albums and libertad.

    I agree. Since Anastasia on the first SMKC record. As far as memorable solo and songs go. I know battleground and The One is pretty good but no one outside of us care. Slash solo had a bunch like by the sword. Snakepits had some of his best. And of course VR
