A Guns N’ Roses fan behind the alias of Betterman reported on My GN’R Forum that Slash offered an update regarding new GN’R and The Conspirators music during a recent interview with Sweden Rock Magazine.
The fan wrote:
“In the latest [edition of] Sweden Rock Magazine, there is an interview with Slash. It focuses on The Conspirators and the interviewer is strictly told not to ask about Guns N’ Roses, but later in the interview Slash himself talks about how he stores his ideas on his cellphone.
“He has over 80 ideas, riffs etc. which are not used and are sorted in Conspirators [folder] and one [folder] for new Guns N’ Roses music. The interviewer then asks when/if we can expect a new GN’R album, and Slash just smiles and says he can’t talk about that. It’s all up to Axl it seems, Slash is ready for a new album!”
This report fairly matches Slash’s comments during recent Classic Rock Magazine interview, during which he said that there are plenty of musical ideas rolling around, but not enough time to work on a new record. Specifically, the guitarist stated:
“I think everybody thinks [a new album] is a good idea, and everybody would like to do it. There’s no shortage of ideas from everybody involved, but we’ve been so busy on the road there hasn’t really been time to go in and sit down and go, ‘Okay, we’re going to make a record.'”
