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

Lol I’m  desperate too. I’m in the same boat as everyone else. At the end of the day, we are all fans. And to answer your question, no, nothing new, only that the album has been finished. I’ll state it again I’m not an “insider” or claiming to be one. I just pass along certain things I hear that’s all. 
 

And to those who will say “but the band members keep saying they are still putting ideas together for a new album so it can’t be finished” how many times did Slash deny the reunion was happening? Even to some of his closest friends.....
 

COVID fucked up everything. Also, if there was an actual plan to release something in November, Axl would not step on Angus’ shoes. He has too much respect for him. I doubt they would have announced an official release until after Power Up was out. 
 

Oh that's nice.  GNR has fallen off the radar here.  It would be great to have them back.  "Please come home for Christmas."

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....."

I feel the same, except I now fully believe there is no new album. They've beaten that one out of me. 

As you say, they're out of moves now (barring getting Izzy and Steven back) and I can't see the business sense at all in still thinking they can charge sky high prices in massive venues. Perhaps people will and can pay it, I don't know. Whatever. I can't. 

They seem to want to be a band aimed entirely at rich casual fans. 

Yeah, Izzy (or the money he asked for) is what prevents this to be a real plan.

But you hit the nail on the head. I'm not rich nor casual, so I've been avoiding spending money with the band - I didn't buy Appetite for Democracy, or the AFD remastered, and surely won't give any money for trucks or crap like that. 

 I think the band/Axl has lost touch with the reality for this business. And they don't care anymore to go after this.

Absolutely. Those releases were fine for what they were in my view (I must be one of the few who actually really likes Appetite For Democracy) but they're not exactly indispensable products. 

I've do idea why things are operating as they are but I think not caring anymore is a a very real possibility behind things. I think the total lack of any sort of band activity over the Covid period probably highlights it. Where other bands were going out of their way to release archive things, stream concerts, release old material, whatever, nothing was done on the GNR front...which would suggest to me that the band simply isn't that valued as something that wants to present itself in a positive light.

I don't see what AC/DC has to do with GNR releasing a record? Two completely different bands. 

Because a Guns record being released with original material from Slash and Axl for the first time in nearly 30 years will overshadow any AC/DC album. Axl is loyal to Angus and the AC/DC brand and would never do that especially since this album is a tribute to Angus’ brother.

I totally understand if this is Axl's thinking. This will most likely be AC/DC's last album. If GNR releases something now, people will gravitate more to that than AC/DC. The reason being is that it would be the first time in 27 years that Axl and Slash have written something together. I  think AC/DC should have their due this month as a result.

Give me a break dude, yeah that’s the reason there’s no album. Maybe next year when there’s no album someone will figure out that Axl lost a tooth and put it under his pillow and decided to wait for the tooth fairy 🧚‍♀️ to come. The album can’t be released while the tooth fairy is on hiatus.

In my view I can understand the band tourinv and milking the fanbase from 2016 to 2019 under the NITL moniker. First time axl and slash are together in 27 years. I dont rate duffs presence all that much.

The band dont have a wide discography like the stones, where they could tour year after year, and charge the same prices like they did under NITL.

Even modifying the setlist and expecting fans tl still turnup would not generate ticket sales.

So if the band want to charge the same ticket prices they need to make it worthwhile for fans like us to attend. That is new music.

I'm inclined to think that it's done, they just haven't said so.

Our mate the other page back said industry people say it's done. That Malibu real estate chick said it's done too, lol. 

I'm not sure how serious i take hearsay, but we all know Slash is a workaholic. There is no reason why he couldn't have belted out Guns stuff in a week or two during lockdown or last year. We know he has been in the studio for GNR, going back at least until early last year (with his amp incident).

I would hazard a guess that most of the studio/band work is done, with the material now likely in the hands of producers and editors in post-production work.

You have 461 posts in this thread alone!

They owe you a got.damned.explanation. 

 

Honestly, I wonder if Axl and Slash are still at the exact same place they were in '94. They still just don't want to do the same thing and Axl isn't inspired at all by sleazy rock riffs.
