Email Facebook Duff McKagan Teases New Guns N’ Roses Album: “Oh, It’s Real” Following the wildly successful reunion for the Not In This Lifetime… Tour, GN’R’s bassist provides a promising update on new materialNate HertweckGRAMMYs Feb 25, 2019 – 5:26 pm At this point, Guns N’ Roses fans are used to two things: extended waits for new music and big surprises. The band’s 2008 album, Chinese Democracy, came after a notorious 15-year hiatus, and their blockbuster 2016 reunion for the Not In This Lifetime… Tour shocked and delighted fans on its way to becoming the fourth-biggest tour ever. Questions about new music were bound to arise, and now GN’R bassist Duff McKagan is fanning the flames of anticipation for a new album.”Oh, it’s real, but the fun part and the cool part about Guns N’ Roses is we don’t really talk about it, and what happens next just happens,” McKagan said on the Trunk Nation radio show. “It’s never been that band that there’s a direct schedule of how we do things. I’ve heard some magnificent stuff that Axl [Rose] has, really cool stuff he’s been working on. So I’m excited about the possibilities with that, of course. I don’t mean to get anybody rabid. Our day will happen when it happens, that’s for sure.” Twitter Duff McKagan Teases New Guns N’ Roses Album duff-mckagan-teases-new-guns-n-roses-album-oh-its-real Earlier this month, the band’s unmistakable guitarist Slash gave an equally hopeful yet murky glimpse into the new project. “Axl, Duff, myself and Richard [Fortus] have all talked about… there’s material and stuff going on already for a new record,” Slash said. “It’s just, with Guns N’ Roses, you don’t go, ‘Oh, there is a plan, and it’s gonna be like this,’ because that’s not how it works. So, basically, the only real answer to give is we’re hoping to put a new record out, and we’ll just see what happens when it happens.”Guns N’ Roses have been nominated for the Best Hard Rock Performance GRAMMY Award three times in their career. Last year the group released a sprawling 73-track box set to commemorate the anniversary of their 1987 debut, Appetite For Destruction. The collection, titled Locked N’ Loaded, earned its art directors a GRAMMY nomination for Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package and gives fans plenty of music to enjoy from the GN’R archive while they eagerly await additional details on a new album.Guns N’ Roses’ Appetite For Destruction | For The RecordRead more News
