I wonder if Axl’s ridiculous demands involve no interviews, no promotion & no comment from the band on the material. There is to be only one copy of the new album (once upon a time in Brazil) and Axl’s demand that pharmabro be the sole owner is pissing off the Record company. 

He said later that it means Axl wanted massive amounts of money but he didn’t even want to do an interview

As in an advance on the album? 

Yeah, something like that.

Part of it. He wants massive amounts of money up front and still refuse to do a sit down with him and Slash and answer questions.  Axl and Slash are in a weird place very business only relationship. Axl demands are basically living in a world where it’s 1992 and he still very negative to dealing with universal thinking that CD was setup to fail by music executives.

I doubt the record company will give a "massive" amount of money up front this time.  They got burned last time after shelling out millions only to have zero promotion by the band themselves once it finally came out.  Axl disappeared and did nothing to help the situation.  Zero interviews, no music video, zero performances until the following year.

Was this Brasky again with the above comments?

Is it even realistic to release whole album when there's only few months left (march rumors before tour)?

I mean, there's so little time left that would't there be some sort of leaked information already? Or announcement at least.

New albums can fall out the sky in this day and age with Spotify etc. It's been done successfully with multiple big artists over the years.

Whether Axl and co would go down this route on the other hand is another question.

I'm not sure whether that Beyonce release came alongside multiple reports/rumours of her being in the studio though that fans latched onto. 

Really, the only rumour we have there MIGHT have been studio activity is that Slash guitar business. As far as I'm aware there's nothing more is there?

To be honest, that's the thing I'm holding onto most. Never mind all the apparent 'insider' drivel that we get fed time and time again, at least that was concrete proof that out of touring, they were jamming/working on something.

Knowing my luck it was for a brand new 20 minute version of Wichita Lineman. "Still on the liiiiii..." outro for 16 minutes continuously.

Slash being at Axls studio is a big indication I guess

Oh absolutely. All this 'insider' nonsense has proven to be wrong time and time again.....yet still gets bought into! T-Rex cover, Terminator, new EP, Live Album etc etc. Same old shit, year after year. 

That Slash thing is the only 'rumour' worth paying attention to. And as you say, could be nothing, could be something. 

Could a band such as GNR ever be recording in a studio and that information NOT leak? I'm cynical as to whether that's possible. Obviously efforts would be made to keep it low-key, but Axl only had to step foot in a room with AC/DC and that went around. Could they seriously keep recording covered up?

Axl has a studio built into his home, so it's possible that he's been working on things from there and I guess if that was the case, that would work best for the likes of Slash and Duff to avoid any press as they would be none the wiser of anything going down. Plus, I'd be interested in knowing that if, in an ideal world, a new album was going to be happening, how much of the backing tracks did Axl keep from the previous sessions recorded by the Chinese lineup. Is it possible that Brain's drums, Pitman's synth or Paul's guitar can make an appearance? It wouldn't come as a shock if any of that happens. I just hope that whatever is released acts as a great follow up to Chinese and beefs up the catalogue a considerable bit.

Very true. If we're looking at some over-recording and alterations, it could easily be done in that studio with the members required going in and out as needed. 

I think if anything is coming it would be that. I can't see that there has been many opportunities for the band to be writing, rehearsing, and recording brand new material in a room together. I know there is always the argument that 'it's 2020, stuff can be done in hotel rooms, ideas sent over, people can work on stuff on their own' etc. but do we honestly think that's what has been going on?! 

Totally new material would take SIGNIFICANT focus and time - it does for all bands. It doesn't sound or look to me like either of those two components form part of a band that have been touring, pretty much non-stop, for the past 4/5 years.

Slash and Axl had the same relationship from 85-94 for the most part. That’s not new.  So I don’t buy that shit.

Agreed - not sure why folk would automatically assume they are best buds etc. And whilst it would be cool if that was the case (it may well be) it’s not an issue at all IMO.

I doubt a new album .... but who knows? they can have recorded since 2016 on and off ... but someone would have leaked information about it ...

Maybe they re-record 5-6 axl (not released chinese songs) plus a couple slash/duff songs .... but what a legal mess it would be... who would have writing-credits for chinese songs ... i don't think axl wants the newera guys cash in ...
