The guitarist still has “no fucking idea” what the record will sound like.
During a conversation with Belfast Live, Slash talked about the new album from Guns N’ Roses, which would mark the follow-up to 2008’s “Chinese Democracy.”
Asked if the group started writing anything, the guitarist replied:
“I wouldn’t say we’ve really sat down and had those sessions yet. The Conspirators are finishing up in mid-August and then Guns is going out in late September/October, so in the fall.
“But at the same time, we’re focused on working towards this new record that everybody’s been asking about. So start focusing on that in earnest. And that’s it.
“I’m not thinking about anything else while that is going on. That’s really the main focus. By the time The Conspirators tour is done, I will have written enough material for the next Conspirators record that whenever that break comes up with Guns N’ Roses we can go on to do that. We’ll just juggle all this stuff, schedules permitting.”
Asked on what the new record will be like, Slash replied:
“I have no fucking idea. I really couldn’t tell you. It’s like anything else – you don’t know what it is until it’s done.”
