Slash Reveals More Tour Dates for Guns N’ Roses and Discusses New Music From the Band
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash was recently interviewed by Consequence of Sound and talked about whether the band will continue to tour this fall and about a possible new record. He said the following:
ON WHETHER THERE WILL BE MORE SHOWS ALONG WITH GUNS N’ ROSES RECENTLY ANNOUNCED LOUDER THAN LIFE GIG
There’s a handful of gigs that are happening at the very end of September and through October, so [Louder Than Life is] just one of them. And then it’s really just focusing on getting a new record done.
ON WHETHER THE NEW GUNS N’ ROSES ALBUM WILL SURFACE BEFORE THE NEXT CONSPIRATORS ALBUM
I would hope so! I mean that’s one of those things where it remains to be seen, but I would hope so. But we’ll see what happens.
Slash also discussed the possible return of AC/DC saying the following:
ON THE APPARENT RETURN OF AC/DC WITH THEIR CLASSIC MEMBERS AND WHAT THE BAND MEANS TO HIM
Where do I start? AC/DC is bar none, with the exception of Stones, the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band ever. The Stones will always come first for me and then AC/DC. There are no other bands that actually play that brand of really ’50s-influenced straight-up rock ‘n’ roll like AC/DC. I love them for that. I think Phil Rudd is one of the best drummers of all time. So anytime he was not in the band, I was always disappointed. But it’s great that Cliff [Williams is] going to be back because I remember being backstage with those guys at the end of the last tour and him saying that he was gone and that he was retired. So it’s great that everybody’s back, but it’s especially awesome that Brian [Johnson] is back.
