Guns N ‘Roses’ latest studio album was Chinese Democracy, released in 2008. But since their Not In This Lifetime tour… the group has been working together on new songs. Now Slash has given an exciting update to the new Guns N ‘Roses album.
“I quarreled with Duff [McKagan, bassist] and I quarreled with Axl [Rose, frontman].
“And I did stuff like that, so we did work that way. But I haven’t done much else. ”

The media pointed out that the music industry in 2020 is very different from what it was when Chinese Democracy was released in 2008.
Given the boom in music streaming services like Spotify, Slash couldn’t help but agree.
Guns N ‘Roses guitarist added, “Yeah! And there are a handful of people who said, “Yeah, make a record and go to the old school.”
“And there are a handful of people who say to themselves:” We no longer even know what buying a record is! “”
In 2016, Express.co.uk spoke with former group manager Vicky Hamilton, who revealed that he preferred the crazy story of the group’s beginnings.
She said, “One day I was driving Guns N ‘Roses rehearsal in the car of a friend of mine who had children. And there was Ernie and Bert [Sesame Street toys] in the back seat.
“I said, ‘Don’t play with her children’s toys.’ The next thing I know is that I am driving and I smell a burning smell. ”
“Axl was in the front seat with me and I look back to see that they took Ernie and Bert, tied guitar strings around their neck and made them smoke cigarettes while hanging from the window. I was like, ‘You must be kidding me.’ I was so upset. I mean now, it’s funny, but it wasn’t funny at the time. “
