Slash had suggested that fans won’t have to wait too long for new Guns N’ Roses material, and that 2021 could see both new releases by Guns N’ Roses as well as from his side project, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators.

But fans of Guns N’ Roses will no doubt know not to hold their breathe, as 2008’s Chinese Democracy, was repeatedly delayed and came out 15 years after their last – and only contained two original band members.

Speaking to, Slash discussed some of what he had been up to, revealing that, “Duff (McKagan) and I did some jamming and we also worked on the Guns record, and I’ve had a couple of ancillary recordings and jams on top of that, so there’s been a lot of stuff going on”.

He also talked about the music he’d been working on with Myles Kennedy, ” We did a week of initial pre-production and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year. I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff”.

When asked about release dates, Slash revealed, “I would like to think that we’d have some new stuff out next year — from both camps, I guess. It’s hard to say, but I would like to think we’ll have stuff out next year, yeah.”

Guns N’ Roses had, like many other bands, been forced to cancel their world tour that they had planned for 2021. When asked about when fans are likely to be able to see the band live again he said, “I know probably about as much as you or anybody else. We have dates (for summer of 2021) that are just sitting there; I would like to think it’s enough time between now and then to be able to pull that off. It’s hard to say. You can’t know for sure until the light at the end of the tunnel really starts shining, so we’re just wishful thinking. We’ll see what happens.”
