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........

agree.  I see many other bands releasing music.  Because they want to.  GnR does not want to and this was just another excuse in a long line of meaningless ones

Like I said, if masks are still mandatory in the US, I think that situation is a studio-no-go for Axl, as I'd believe he wants to do it old school (at least partially), like physically being there with the boys, not remotely via technology, in which case he's not gonna do it with fucking masks on. That's not a mood in which you want to record a new - heavily important - record. We already know that every pin-drop, every glance matters.

My band used a rehearsal space without masks. Then again we think of eachother like family and restrictions aren't too bad in Sydney

Right, but that's rehearsing. Recording would involve sound engineers etc., and some people like going by the rules. And if I'm right, a mere glimpse of something like that might kill Axl's mood for the day or worse, and we may be in for a new SMKC record instead, with Axl locked up in his Malibu mansion for another year, just tweeting about politics...

She said it, out of the blue, on Brando’s podcast back in April.

Wasn’t there an also an Instagram post where she got all gooey about the tour but also mentioned a new record? If memory serves she then amended the post to refer only to the tour

I suppose it possible the vocals are already done....(you never know) and regarding the studio.....I’d wager it’s properly top-of-the-line so it will have everything needed for vocals to be recorded in the current situation as @Popcorn crew said.

We know Slash was there pre-lockdown, who’s to say he/Duff etc haven’t been there during? 🤷🏼‍♂️

Rock stars worrying about the Rona' makes me think of this image.

We all know that guy : drugmemes

 

 

Haha! 

I can never believe the hypocrisy of people who advocate for fair-trade, ethical goods, Amnesty international, environmental friendly etc etc. All great things of course.....then happily buy class A drugs, conveniently ignoring the trail of misery and exploitation that this causes.

It's all possible, I just hope they either create, jam, or even record at least something together, you know, old time. But yeah, we know they've been jamming. In fact, the record may have already been done as we speak.

Hmmm...The t-rex tribute just came out including Keshas version of Children of the revolution, U2 feat. Elton John doing Get it on and so on. GNR were largely rumored to have their own new version of Children of the revolution here, but as always no GNR to be seen. 

Several sources claim to know that this track was specifically recorded by reformed GNR and to be included on the (then) upcoming T rex tribute.

Fingers crossed it’s been done. 👍

Which sources? 

All I remember hearing is that the person who was putting it together was asked and said there was no GNR involvement in it whatsoever, and he knew nothing about it.

I wouldn't be surprised if most of the vocal takes on the new album are 1999-201X 

I know this is unlikely, but I hope they keep some of the instrumental bits from the CD era lineup. Imagine Frank re-recording all of Brain's drums. Painful. I'm OK with Duff rerecording bass, and even Slash re-recording some of the bluesy guitar parts, I just hope we get some of the best of Robin and Bucket. At least we will probably have more of a Richard presence on the next album. I'd even settle with Richard re-recording some of the more challenging Robin and Bucket takes.

I really have to commend you all on your optimism.   Once again they have not contributed to a record and most others have, once again.  If I were you anything that is not written/said by Axl take it as an untruth.  I dont know what the name or the point of their game is, manybe they need everyone to become bored with them to frighten them into doing something.  Tis sad and sooooo frustrating.

 

Why do you think an album is in the works, what is it you see?
