Six years have passed since the legendary guitarist Slash and Duff McKagan reunited with Axl Rose in Guns N’ Roses. The band recently dropped a couple of new songs. Slash joined Heavy Consequence for an interview when he discussed his new album from his band featuring himself, Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. The guitarist also briefly talked about Guns N’ Roses, as well.
Guns N’ Roses reveals two songs
Starting last summer, Guns N’ Roses began rolling out new music, releasing the singles “Absurd” and “Hard Skool.” Both originated from the Chinese Democracy era sessions, but were reworked by the band’s current lineup.
Slash further gave a deeper insight to the new music which is on the way in the coming months. “There is new material coming — everybody’s always asking. I would imagine that there will be one or two songs that come out around the time that we hit the road in June.”
Fans never expected to witness Axl and Slash on the same stage together again after a rift drove them apart for two decades which is certainly not lost on Slash:
“It’s been great,” Slash told about his reunion with Axl and Guns N’ Roses. “We got back together and it was really sort of like one of those huge question marks, and it was only to do the Coachella festivals, really. And it just snowballed into this tour that’s really been sort of going ever since then.”
He continued, “But we’ve had a blast doing it, and I’m really happy that finally after all those years of negativity and whatnot, that we got past all that, and managed to get together and go out and play.”
