Guns N’ Roses confirm two new albums are complete


Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has confirmed the existence of not one, but two new albums of GN’R material.

Speaking to Revolver magazine, Rose confirmed that the band have finished recording the follow up to their 2008 album, Chinese Democracy, and that a Chinese Democracy remix album is also complete.

“We recorded a lot of things before Chinese was out,” said the singer. “We’ve worked more on some of those things and we’ve written a few new things. But basically, we have what I call kind of the second half of Chinese. That’s already recorded. [The remix album has] been done for a while, too.”

Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses are set to release a 3D concert film entitled Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live from the Hard Rock Casino – Las Vegas. The movie will be released on the 1st of July on Blu-ray and DVD. It was filmed on the 21st of November, 2012 when the band were playing a residency at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas.

Duff McKagan: This Isn’t About Axl Rose

Ex-Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan has spoken out about the bands’ induction into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame today, insisting that it has nothing to do with Axl Rose’s decision not to attend the ceremony.

Rose released a statement earlier this week explaining his decision to stay away from the event and asking not to be inducted ‘in absentia.’ But McKagan, writing on, said:

“In the end, it’s not about who does or doesn’t show up from the original band, and I back whatever reason this guy or that has for not coming. It’s all good. The songs are the important bit here… and the message they most certainly still must carry.”

Until last week, rumours suggested that the original line up of Guns N’ Roses would get back together to perform at the induction ceremony. Former band members, Slash, Steven Adler and Matt Sorum are all thought to be attending the event this evening, but a performance is unlikely.
