New website Setup and Billboard Appears
Someone on the MYGNRFORUM found a new site that appears to be setup by Universal Music, Guns N’ Roses record label. The site is GNR.FM and you can see the screen shot of it below. It teases a line saying “Destruction is Coming”. There have been some rumours that Appetite for Destruction is possibly getting a reissue or the Appetite lineup is playing a show together. The social media icons on the site link to the official Guns N’ Roses icon.
In addition to the website, a fan from Camden, England took a photo of a Guns N’ Roses billboard in their town. I’ve included it below. I have personally heard through inside sources that the record label is working on releasing something related to the Appetite days. As we get more information on this story we’ll keep you guys and gals updated!
LA Guns Singer Phil Lewis Says He Hopes AC/DC Will Make a New Studio Album!
In a recent interview with L.A. Guns singer Phil Lewis, he states that he’d love to see Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose make a new studio record with AC/DC.
Asked by Sticks For Stones if Angus should record a new AC/DC album with Axl, Lewis said (hear audio below): “Yeah, if they can come up with some songs, and it sounds good… Because, clearly, Angus isn’t ready to retire, and it’s highly unlikely that Axl‘s gonna do another GUNS N’ ROSES record. So, yeah, why not? — it might be interesting to see what those two come up with. I hope they do it.”
He continued: “Axl sure can nail… he nails Brian‘s parts really well. He can hit the notes, but he just doesn’t have the gravel; it’s a little clean when he does it. And that’s a tiny, tiny criticism, because he does it so well. But Brian Johnson‘s just got that grit. But, yeah, it’ll be interesting to see what happens.”
Johnson was forced to leave AC/DC mid-tour due to a dangerous level of hearing loss, while Rudd was dismissed following a drug arrest and Williams decided to retire at the end of the cycle.
Malcolm Young was diagnosed with dementia several years ago and bowed out before the sessions for “Rock Or Bust” began. He died this past November.
Angus has not said publicly what he has planned for the future of AC/DC. Axl is still touring with GUNS N’ ROSES but has indicated a willingness to work with AC/DC again. It is also unknown whether Angus will keep the other members of the last touring lineup — including guitarist Stevie Young and drummer Chris Slade — or revamp the roster again.
