The Guns N’ Roses Not this Lifetime tour has been one of the most massive tours of all time. I think its hit second overall all time, with a few more dates set to come later in this year. GNR revived the key elements of the classic lineup (Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan) but Izzy Stradlin and Steven Alder are still not involved. Still, Axl Rose getting back with Slash was all fans needed to see. Personally, I would’ve liked to have seen the full lineup.
GNR are out on the road in the fall, but they’ve officially said that they are working on new material. It’ll be the first to feature Slash and Duff since the cover album The Spaghetti Incident. The most recent Guns N’ Roses album Chinese Democracy took well over a decade to make and mostly resulted in disappointment.
I don’t know that I really need new material from GNR. I’m not the biggest fan of them anyway, but Appetite for Destruction is a hell of an album that I still really enjoy. I just feel like any new album will have ridiculously large hype that will never live up to expectations.
Would you be interested in a new Guns N’ Roses album?
Its weird that both things I’ve posted today had tie in with Slash.
