Guns N’ Roses update

Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba is sharing an update on the band’s plans for 2015.

“We are planning on doing quite a bit of touring this coming year,” Ashba tells Legendary Rock Interviews while promoting the forthcoming Sixx A.M. release, “Modern Vintage.” “The focus is getting in a studio and putting together what we all feel is the best Guns N’ Roses record. Lack of material is not an issue. We have tons of stuff. Axl has two full albums that he has recorded, he has played me a bunch of songs off of that, are incredible! I can’t wait to get in and kind of dive into those as well.”

“I’ve written tons of songs & demoed up a bunch of stuff,” he adds. “I think it is just a matter of getting in & sifting through the piles of material.”

GNR’s last album was 2008’s “Chinese Democracy”, a project that was more than 15 years in the making; the band has been on tour almost constantly since its release.

Last May, Axl Rose sharing his own update on new music by his band.

"We recorded a lot of things before [2008’s] 'Chinese' [Democracy] was out," Axl told Revolver magazine. "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. And then we have a remix album made of the songs from 'Chinese'. That's been done for a while, too. But after [the band’s spring residency in Las] Vegas, we're going to start looking very seriously at what we're doing in that regard."
