In amazing news for all Guns N’ Roses fans, guitarist Slash has apparently been working on new Guns N’ Roses material in the studio, according to Arlett Vereecke, the ex-GNR publicist. Recording is “definitely” taking place—although the band’s frontman, Axl Rose, hasn’t been involved, said Vereecke.
Vereecke told Classic Rock: “I know they’re doing some recording. They’re definitely doing something there in the studio. Axl hasn’t been there, but Slash is definitely in there and it’s not for anyone else.”
In related news, Alan Niven, the band’s ex-manager, has also added fuel to the fire with regards to new material by suggesting that bassist Duff McKagan and guitarist Izzy Stradlin have also been working together on songs. Niven said, “Duff and Izzy were in the studio before Christmas doing stuff. At a casual glance I think they’ve got at least a couple of tracks down.”
The band kicks off its reunion tour in April with two Las Vegas shows; and two Mexico City concerts to slot in between the band’s headline appearances at Coachella later in the month.
