"YOU WANTED A NEW ALBUM? WELL THEY DIDN'T FUCKIN' MAKE IT. SO HERE'S WHAT YOU GET, FROM HOLLYWOOD"

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....."

He's a total prick. I agree with every musician here: https://www.nme.com/news/music/musicians-criticise-spotify-ceo-album-release-comments-2719827

"Work harder to make me more money". Spotify fuck over artists, so fuck them. I wish artists would boycott them....but with no viable alternative they're stuck. All I can do as a fan is never use it. 

But, yeah, absolutely Taylor Swift is the benchmark for how to release a new album..... especially in the pandemic. It sold great even though she couldn't tour to promote to it. And 'shock, horror' shitloads of people bought physical copies! 

Is the point of Guns N' Roses not meant to be that they're as unconventional as they come? Sure, it'd be fun if they'd released a new album every 4 years for the last 30 years but there's something to be said for maintaining quality over quantity. If they don't have genuinely great music to release I'd probably rather they didn't. Part of the fun of this band is the mythology associated with the "what if" element of the band.

Since 2016 I've managed to see them 4 times in various places around the US. I'm grateful for that and if that's all I ever get again then, to me, they'll live and die as the best rock band ever.

I'm so comfortable with them not releasing a "has been" album these days.

I doubt it. He didn't seem bothered by the last one, and Slash doing a world tour! 

 

But was that in the middle of Guns N' Roses supposedly working on a new album? I can't remember?

The dissapointing years all just get mixed up together for me these days, my timeline of being a GnR fan is just one very long winding road of saddness and dissapointment!

:P

Man, even if they did an AFD5 reunion next week, Izzy would be gone again by Christmas. I don't care if the new album sounds like a Mariah Carey Easter LP, I just want them to work on something. 

they could sing happy birthday 12 different ways, and I would take it

Just think how time flies. Soon we can celebrate one year anniversary of Fernando saying: "Within six months"

I want a new GNR record more than anything else but this statement by Fernando never got me excited. Even without Covid there wouldn't be a new album out by now.

I'm 100% of the view that Covid has nothing to do with the lack of new material in any way, shape or form.

It will be interesting to see what people say though when/if touring starts again and there is no new material........

I'm asking because my Mercedes only has a cassette tape player. :)

After the album drops in 2030, it would be nice to have it in my Benz. :D

Haha! 

I do actually wish we were at the stage of discussing what formats this (at present fictional) album will be released on seriously! Sadly we're still at the stage of debating whether the album is even being made!

COVID was a convenient excuse for this bands ineptitude in being able to re-release anything other than a shitty record that the daft shits tried to block in the first place.

Tell you what, I’m seeing the negativity grow across all the forums and even on the FB posts by GNR. One upon a time the latter contained nothing but posts by nut swingers.
