Is CDII the final Guns release?


Recommended Posts

Let’s say CDII is happening this year, next year, or soon.

Is that the end of the road for new Guns music? Do we really imagine Axl, with his current voice laying down vocals on new songs? With how long new music takes, would he be in his 70’s by the time it would be finished anyways? The way it currently feels is like that CDII will be the last hurrah for new music, and then the band will tour for a while followed by the typical finale tour.

I would hope to be wrong but the idea of them releasing anything after this alleged CDII, if it happens period, feels bleak, considering CDII will mostly use already written songs with already finished vocals.

I wouldn't be surprised if CDII was the last album released by GN'R (more might be released post mortem, but that's not what we are talking about). I would also not be surprised if they release one or more albums after CDII. So for once I don't think the band can actually manage to surprise me. Haha. I have the upper hand now.

He very well could record vocals today and sound great. The question is will he write new songs

I don't expect another GNR record ever. I expect they'll go the Motley Crue route. A single or two for each new tour (SOYL, Absurd, Hard Skool, and onward), maybe the occasional video or promotion, but nothing more than that. They're a touring nostalgia act. Anything more will be unexpected.

I think that would require him recording line by line - which IIRC is how it's believed he recorded much of Chinese, right? It's possible, but I suspect unlikely. I think it's far more likely that they're using the CD sessions as the basis because Axl's voice was in great shape at periods, it's the best option they have, and honestly, I think Axl needs to let go and put it out there for his own good.

We might see the odd track after that, but I suspect they'll probably end up on the festival circuit and rinse the vault for all it's worth.

It'll be the last album released from a current, active lineup.

Unfortunately, in 20+ years or so when some key members start passing and/or are incapacitated to the point where the band's decisions are left up to an estate or a label, we'll start seeing albums released full of outtakes/works in progress/anything unreleased in the vault.

I believe if they mix old, newer, and new in each case, they can pull more albums, but it all stands or falls with Axl's voice possibilities. I've never feared scarcity of material in his case. Just because it's not out, it doesn't mean there's nothing.

This is the most likely, I agree. After the next and final album. ;)

Would be cool if they did another album of new, more mellow, accoustic stuff with some live tracks again, like Lies, at some point in the future. "More Lies".

IF this one were to come out, and I have no doubts this will be dragged out another year or so, it absolutely will be the last official GNR release under the helm of Axl. 
 

At this point it’s quite evident Axl isn’t capable of recording full-length songs utilizing his dynamic range and vocal prowess of long forgotten lore.

but what if he doesn't need to record full length songs anymore to release more music in the future? we don't know how many tunes with finished vocals exist in the vault.

there could be 2 albums worth of music with vocals so they can release CD ll next year, and another album 5 years from now.

anyway, my focus is on CD ll. I hope they will manage to get it out soon. Everything else is gravy.
