The "New Album" Thread - Susan McKagan says album is coming

Why can't they just say exactly what the status of the album is? Is recording finished or not? Mixing? Are they in negotiations with the label? 90% of negativity would die down if they would just tell people what the fuck is going on.

Because A: Hype B: NDA, C: If they did you would say bullshit like always

I don't care what Fernando is talking about.
They simply wrap the fans in a tight skirt and we are waiting for some concrete answer.
It's very difficult to believe in this band, Axl lost credits, how long has he been talking about a new album? since 2005 or 2006? Your answers are empty.
2021 is coming and maybe we will have something related to UYI.
I believe they have an album up their sleeve, but what the fuck is going on that they can't release a single?

ohhh bhoooo hoooo. You ask him for updates he gives you one and you say. "I don't care". Boo fucking hoo

Grandma's hamster has never been in safer hands.

I like the idea of being on my death bed, saying "just refresh that page one more time for me....I'm pretty sure that insider was full of shit, but I want to be totally sure....." 

Axl is close to 60 Reunion is now over 4 years old The last unheard new song was played in 2006 The last studio album was in 2008 The last new song before that in 1999 Every s

I say release the rest of the chinese sessions now (with Slash n Duff overdubs) to tide the fans over until next year (possibly focused on a digital release right now with physical formats to follow around Christmas time), then tour and release a 30 anniversary boxset to commemorate the illusions in 2021. I think that would work very nicely and certainly keep the fans happy :)

Just a few things to add to the Fn’ando’s recent Reddit posts:

- "The band is doing what they can to address the public". I don’t understand. They said nothing until recently, yet the fact the shows were cancelled by the governments had been known for a while. If they were waiting for TM’s statement on refunds, they could have said so. Like, "sorry, the shows have been postponed, and we’ll update you on the tickets status". But they didn’t communicate at all. Their social media suck. There. 
But he wants to "reassess their posting ways". Great, please do that.

- He says he wants to amend the gap between the band and the fans, via e-mail. Well, sounds like a nice move, although I’ll retain certain scepticism if I may; after all, suggestions were posted right in the very Reddit conversation, and if TB wanted to do anything, they already must be aware of tons of things the fans wish for. 

- Says they need to figure out a way to "bridge the gap" regarding bootlegs. Funny statement, considering what they’ve (not) done so far and how much time they’ve had for any such activity, especially these days. I don’t know, man. 

And as usual, "the shutdowns were done without GN’R’s knowledge or direction". Square one. I always remember that Beta’s funny statement "we don’t know who’s doing that, but it will continue"...

In general, although there seem to be certain brighter hints in this convo (the mail, the suggestions), it doesn’t really make a particularly hopeful impression on me; I’m still quite sceptical about it, as much as I’d like to be proven wrong.

Should I bother to suggest something about digitally releasing even a ONE new song and giving us live-performance from 2016?

How many of you already did this? :)

It's just PR talk, we'll see what happens in time. Actions speak louder than words and all that.

I believe so. I mean, I’m always sort of inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt, but on the other hand, how is one a manager of such band for decades and has no clue as to what to do other than arranging shows, since the band hasn’t been doing anything but touring? Do you really need to ask the fans like this, as if you couldn’t, I don’t know, e.g. get inspired by other bands in the same rank? It is ridiculous, indeed.

Well - if it IS him and he has put it out there for suggestions to TB mail address, we should all do it.

I know that option has always been there (e-mailing that address) but if it’s out in public we can make suggestions then we should go for it - we all make suggestions on here all the time so might as well send them on!

instead of 1000s of fan emails, we should create some well thought wanted list together and let an admin from here send over our "9 steps master plan to please fans" or however we could call it.
new music sure! but if people request to get Ritz88, Paris92 etc. officially.......that should NEVER be a goal by us. We have them in really good quality already.

main focus should be unheard/unseen songs or song versions and footage we dont even have fan recordings, demos etc. from.

"Please e-mail us and do our job for us because we are completely incompetent as a management team."

All though they may be indicating a turning point and willingness to start to listen to what the fanbase want. I rather think of the latest posts as a positive step in that direction.

I hear you, but it's hard not to be skeptical of this band until we see results. Until then, this reads as more of the usual "looking very seriously into what we're doing in that regard" nonsense that has been coming from the band for years. We can e-mail them all we want with valid ideas and constructive criticism, but a lot of what they could be doing is so painfully obvious that it should already be being done.

I agree. How about earning the fan's attention with some action? Like, you know, every other artist in the world?

GNR nor Nando, give a shit about anyone here, or there ideas. It's just another ploy. Axl has nothing left. Any "new" music would be some regurgitated song that began 20 years ago, & would likley include 20 year old vocals. Though, I think its laughable to ever believe this band will ever release "new" (old as hell) music anyway. 

As long as there still selling tickets, what makes anyone believe they would care about anything else? There devotion to there fans?? Yeah ok.
