It was recently announced that the classic Guns N’ Roses lineup—including Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan—are reuniting for several live performances this year, and now comes the news that new music from the very same lineup may well be in the works.
“I know they’re doing some recording,” the band’s former publicist Arlett Vereecke has reportedly said. “They’re definitely doing something there in the studio. Axl hasn’t been there, but Slash is definitely in there and it’s not for anyone else.”
Guns N’ Roses’ former manager Alan Niven says, “Duff and Izzy were in the studio before Christmas doing stuff. At a casual glance I think they’ve got at least a couple of tracks down.”
Slash left the Guns N’ Roses lineup in 1996, and McKagan followed suit the following year. Slash recently said that he and Axl reconciled after the two of them “dispelled some of that negative stuff.” The band’s live schedule includes dates in Las Vegas, appearances at the Coachella festival in Inddio, California, and a show in Mexico City, all taking place in April.
