MSL is reporting on GNRTruth that Slash and Duff McKagan are working on unreleased Chinese Democracy era Guns N’ Roses songs.
“I am under the impression that many of the songs from the group of songs we think of as the ‘second half’ of Chinese are still intended for release. Slash & Duff did some studio work on a couple of them, which will hopefully be released on a ‘best of’ collection later this year. As for when a full length album of new material would be released, I have no idea. but i don’t think Axl worked on those songs for so long to keep them buried. It’s just a question of the right commercial timing.”
“Slash was really out of the picture by 95 . . . material from 97 did end up on Chinese Democracy . . .
I have no way of knowing what would or would not be revisited, but I personally believe Axl’s focus in terms of new music, if/when it’s ever released, continues to be the songs we think of as the ‘second half’ of Chinese.
I was told by someone in Slash’s camp that he laid down a solo for ‘Atlas Shrugged.’ That is why I’m assuming it might be a song included on a best of collection.”
