Duff McKagan has now echoed what Slash and Guns n’ Roses’ other guitarist, Richard Fortus, said about Axl Rose writing new songs for a possible GnR album.
Speaking to Eddie Trunk on Sirius-XM, Duff says, “I heard some new material and there’s been some jams going around, and that’s the next step for us, for the GnR thing … Really cool stuff he’d been working on. So I’m excited about the possibilities with that…
“But the fun part and the cool part about Guns n’ Roses is we don’t really talk about it, and what happens next just happens. It’s never been that band that there’s a direct schedule of how we do things.”
Should this result in an album, it will be the first since 2008’s Chinese Democracy, and the first with Duff and Slash since 1993’s The Spaghetti Incident.
