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....."

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. 

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.

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.

We may be pissed off - and god knows GN'R fans have plenty of goddamn reasons for that - but let's face the truth without prejudice: an album is in the works. That's what matters.

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?

Cause the key members said so. I don't remember Slash ever lying in the past when he said they were working on something. All those in the know confirm it. We have proof of them having jammed in Axl's studio. I give exactly zero credibility to their "manager" and what he says about it, but if Slash and Duff confirm it, I have no reason to doubt it, never had. Any release date and the time it's been taking is a whole different story. Look at it this way: in a different universe, this actually could have been just a nostalgia act (I know it's kinda looked like it since 2018), with the guys openly admitting there's no other future beyond touring the greatest hits. But that's not GN'R's case, and god am I grateful for that. 

I have no problems bitching and messing around, because the guys friggin' deserve it, let's be honest. But sometimes I look at the big picture - and it's still great. We're getting an album, and Axl still is a beast - when he wants to, that is. All cool.

Apparently, Classic Rock (magazine) as far as I remember meant to have sources claiming this

Also been talked about "as fact" on other forums/discords

Load of bullshit then.

If the guy making the album said he had no idea about it and that it wasn't happening then the word of 'insiders' on forums is just the usual nonsense we've had for years.

It is a nostalgia act though at this stage, until the moment they do something new or different. There's no getting around that fact. 

I've no doubt Slash and Duff want new material.....but I feel they're constantly putting a positive spin on the age old 'playing each other ideas' thing we've had for years. It's vague and evasive comments all the way. At this stage it would probably take a studio photo to convince me anything serious is happening.

Absolutely legit point. I just think they run that old "let’s be mysterious" mode, which is not cool any more – especially in their situation – but go tell them that, right.

I think the time perspective is the key. Did they use their spare time throughout NITL to work on GNR stuff, or was it relaxing and possibly doing solo gigs? Was the plan not to begin any serious work until this year, and then it got fucked over by the virus? Because if so, then we’re talking months, not years. What gets me personally frustrated way more is the lack of communication, and like you say – why not post a single damn picture of the three from a studio, including Axl? One shot, all it takes, and people would have fuel for months. But oh well, as usual...

I totally agree. 

I think the problem with the 'mysterious' too is that we're coming at it from years of nonsense. Most of my favourite bands are pretty private, and just do their own thing, but you have years of confidence and faith built up in them. They're quiet....but you know some new material will come up. And if they say it's coming you know it definitely is. 

The GNR approach is victim to 'fool me once, shame on me....fool me twice shame on you' I think.

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

Doesn't ring a bell though I'm sure someone will remember!

She talked about a new album on some podcast. I remember hearing her saying it, sort of out of the blue. It was on this forum too, or at least someone posted it.

Yeah, she mentioned that on Brando's podcast back in April, but apparently there was some Instagram comment she made, then quickly edited it when she realised she may have said too much!

You have been here a lot longer than me so I shall take your word for it and hope for new music ;)

I’m not sure if she did?

but what you are describing reminds me a lot of a different insta  post. She talked about being out on tour with the band. She gave their itinerary of countries and her wording made it seem like she was breaking the news of another US run. And that run was hotly speculated at the time.

She quickly amended that post.

Is it possible that’s what you’ve got in mind?
