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


Recommended Posts

One thing that I wonder..... Slash is a creative, productive guy - and always has been. He writes all the time, including on the road. Axl is the opposite, as we all know.

So let's imagine Slash has been writing some stuff for the last year or two, and that some of it is decent. What happens to it? Does he give it to GNR, knowing it might never get out to the fans? And meaning his work with Myles Kennedy is just the left over crap that GNR doesn't want? 

Or does he give it to GNR knowing that if it ever gets made and released, Axl and Duff can probably take it to another level completely?

What would you do???

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 dont think Slash is in a similar contract as the Axl band, where everything produced automatically becames property of GNR. He probably presents ideas, bu I doubt he will just keep waiting for Axl, at some point it will probably be a Snakepit situation all over again. Slash will record his stuff and then Axl will call him asking about the songs and he’ll be like “Dude, I recorded those 15 years ago with Myles”

You obviously didn't hear much from the Miami show then!

I listened to bits and pieces, but Jungle in particular was the strongest he's sounded on it since 2017 to me. Maybe one of his strongest since 2016.

He sounded like Axl has consistently sounded the last couple years. Which is to say, mid-tour form vs. Berlin '18 form, which he usually sounds closer to on the first show after a few months.

Slash has mentioned before he has ideas specifically for GN'R that he stores away.

That so obviously doesn’t count.

I think we should let Axl have that one. 

What about Silkworms?

I'm pretty sure Slash said he already has ideas for the next album with Myles. Maybe it'll be out 2021/22

I imagine that if Slash realizes Axl will truly never release any more GNR music, those "GNR ideas" would go to SMKC. He no doubt wants to get them out somehow, and what else is he supposed to do when Axl refuses to put out new stuff.

I heard ISE and Brownstone and he was totally fine on those. I guess it depends on what tracks you got to hear.

Dude, more than half of each of those songs are sung in basically his talking voice. Still really strained and cracky on the ends of both songs.

I would use it for a new VR or the 2nd Slash album.

May aswell delete this whole section and "new album thread" cos i just seen the ad for the US tour "next chapter". Are you fucking joking me...fuckers labelled the european tour under an "all new show"  banner. 

We again are the mugs iv forked out nightrain tix and im just so defeated with this whole thing. 

Very very thankful Duff Slash Axl got back with Axl for a run but they need to leave guns again if they have any self worth. They are better than beating this dead horse...how fitting its added to the set. We are not getting a new album and meds up Axl  is gonna die with a vault of music untouched. Atleast i can I look fwd to the next SMKC album and Slash is better off keeping his own riffs for his music. Fuck Axl at this stage

He sings low on those, tho. It’s the higher-pitch songs (which is most of gnr’s catalogue, actually) that are more challenging.

True - but it proves IF the setlist was amended to cater to his strengths it would improve his performance AND give variety to the show. There is more material across the albums which could be utilised. It’s just a pity the hits are mainly ‘high’!

Actually, I’m gonna start a thread on this -using the full catalogue, what could be a winning setlist with current vocals!

Me: Complains about no new record, no new music in the set list.

Also me: Spends $600 on tickets to see Guns N' Roses at Wrigley Field.

You're a better man than I. I'm finally drawing the line with this tour.

I feel bad for Slash for having to deal with these kinds of leechs, Duff grew a pussy and is probably fine with anything as long it doesnt hurt anyones feelings (but the fans of gnr) but Slash could be doing something interesting hadnt he returned to GNR.

I kind of understand why he seems so bored and uninterested live, how can anyone be genuinely interested in something like what Gnr become lol 

Never tought Id want to see Slash out of GNR lol

Yeah, no new music then Slash needs to leave. He has too much talent and creativity to waste in a dead band.

He'll probably never leave but I prefer when he's being creative and releasing stuff.

He writes separately for SMKC and GnR. Although I guess it's possible that if it takes long enough some GnR ideas could go to SMKC.
