Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash was interviewed by Eddie Trunk on SiriusXM Monday, and following the reported leak of unheard Guns N’ Roses material, he shot down rumors that the band are recording a new song for ‘Terminator: Dark Fate.’GnR Chris recapped the interview on MyGNRForum.com.
Slash: “We’re just doing this one run in the states and a couple dates in Mexico end of this month into November. That’s it for Guns for now, and I think we have something coming up in March as far as touring is concerned. But then, obviously, everybody knows that we’re working on new material, which is really exciting, and so, that’s really primarily what the focus is. There’s nothing in the Terminator movie, by the way.”
Trunk: “Duff has been out with his own record … Where are you at with Guns N’ Roses new music? Are you all working individually? Has everybody gotten together? A song, an album?”
Slash: “I have nothing to tell you information-wise other than no, it’s not that. Everybody has been sort of like, when we’re in town, working on it. Then when we’re out of town, obviously not.”
Trunk: “Would you like to do a full Guns N’ Roses album?” (as opposed to a single or EP)
Slash: “Everybody wants to have a full album released. I don’t think that’s really changed all that much. There’s a different way of putting stuff out initially nowadays more so than … you sort of look at that preliminary release a little differently now. At the end of the day, we will ultimately release a full album.”
Trunk: “On Guns N’ Roses with the live shows coming up, I know you didn’t start rehearsals yet, but is it basically gonna be more or less the same sort of set and what you guys have done in the past, or for these shows, are you working up some different things?”
Slash: “There’s a couple different things that we’re talking about doing, that are sort of in the works to do. That we’re planning on doing. So, I’ll just leave it at that.”
Axl Rose inviting surprising girls onto a private jet was revealed last week. Trunk, after the interview, about the news that a new GNR tune won’t be in Terminator:
“I’ll give a little asteriks on that. About a week before it was announced that Slash was back in Guns N’ Roses, true story, he called me. Not texted. He called me privately. ‘I don’t know anything about this Guns N’ Roses stuff that’s going on.'” (Trunk laughs) “So take that into the equation … he threw up some serious smoke and mirrors on me at the time … then a week later, the Not in this Lifetime tour was announced … He’s done that misdirection shit to me once or twice before.” Slash recently revealed a gross Gene Simmons photo.
