In an interview with Mama’s Fallen Angels Guns n Roses guitarist DJ Ashba talked a little about the writing progress of a new Guns n Roses album. Seems like it’s still a long time until we can expect a new album but this gives a little hope for a followup to “Chinese Democracy”, a album that took something like 14 years to make and was a big disappointment even though i think it had a handfull of good tunes. Hopefully it won’t take as long this time, and hopefully Ashba get in on the creative progress cause i think he is a good composer, just listen to Sixx Am and the latest Mötley Crue album wich he contributed to.
“I can’t give anybody a definite date, because I’m not gonna give anybody false hope. But what I can say is making a new album absolutely is our main priority. And I cannot wait to get working on it. I mean, Axl has tons and tons of stuff recorded as it is. I mean, he sits there in his hotel room and he’ll play me hours of stuff. And I’ve written over ten songs — I think 12 songs now — for him that he really likes. And I think now that we’re off tour, we’re gonna kind of start talking about, ‘Hey, let’s start piecing together what we feel would be the next best Guns n Roses record.’ It’s absolutely everybody’s goal to get out an album within a reasonable amount of time. That is everybody’s focus.”
