Bandmate Won’t ‘Lose Sleep’ Over New Guns N’ Roses Album


Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash’s Conspirators bandmate Todd Kerns discussed the future of Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators in a new Appetite for Distortion interview. Alternative Nation transcribed Kerns’ comments about a possible new Guns N’ Roses reunion album.

“I would be really excited, people keep saying to me, ‘Aren’t you worried if Guns N’ Roses does a new record?’ I go dude, as a fan, I think it would be fucking awesome. I’m just that guy, I don’t really lose a lot of sleep about, what’s that going to mean for me? It ain’t about me. I knew that going into play with Slash in the first place. I knew it wasn’t about me, this is about a much, much bigger picture. Guns N’ Roses is a history of rock and roll band. When they got back together, I was the one going fuck yeah, that is very exciting to me. Sure I have to go do other things, but that’s not really the point.

So to me, we’ve been dealing with it in this band since the beginning, because Myles Kennedy was always a member of Alter Bridge. There was never kind of a defined break in that, it was like no, Myles will always go back and do a run with Alter Bridge. So we always sort of took a break, and this has just been an extended break.

If it all ended tomorrow, and Guns N’ Roses and Alter Bridge are going to be the focus, I wouldn’t lose a wink of sleep about it. I want what’s best for my friends, I care so much about Myles and Slash, whatever they chose to do is cool with me. I love making music with my friends, but at the end of the day I know there’s more to life.”
