The above is a photoshop depiction of Axl Rose and Slash in 2015.
Epiphone, the sister company of Slash’s guitar company Gibson, is reporting that ‘something’ is going on between the guitarist and Guns N’ Roses:
“We’ve been hearing the rumors for months about a reunion of the original line-up of Guns N’ Roses. But even our well-placed Epiphone informants are still keeping details under wraps. But is there something going on? Yes. But what exactly we can’t say yet. Though numerous mags are confirming a 2017 reunion tour (or at least a massive anniversary show), no one from the original line-up is going all-out on record. But you can bet if the web is a-buzz already at the rumor of “massive” stadium shows, something good is in the works and that much we can tell you. Meanwhile, Slash and his Conspirators will be ringing in the New Year in Las Vegas at the House of Blues.”
Slash’s Conspirators bandmate Todd Kearns claimed that ‘schedules’ are a big reason Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators will being taking a bit of a break from their usual breakneck speed of recording and touring. Kearns discussed this in a new interview with Ruutu.
Kearns said the only reason they are taking a break is because they are “stuck in traffic” with Myles’ schedule with Alter Bridge.
He says Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators will release their album after Alter Bridge gets theirs out. They already have 10-12 songs written.
He also says if it was up to Slash the band would cyclically record, tour, record, tour forever ”
“The only thing keeping him from doing that is schedules and other people.”
The ‘schedules’ preventing the album from coming out this summer has also been heavily rumored to be a Guns N’ Roses reunion, with major festival gigs rumored, including Coachella.
