GUNS N' ROSES and SIXX: A.M. guitarist Daren Jay "DJ" Ashba was interviewed on a recent edition of "The Morning Blend" show on the Las Vegas, Nevada TV station KTNV. You can watch video footage of his appearance below.
During a recent interview with "The Louvau Show", Ashba was asked whether there are any concrete plans for the current lineup of GUNS N' ROSES to go into the studio and record new music. He said: "Before I joined the band, there's two more albums' worth of songs that already had been recorded and Axl's [Rose, lead vocals] played me a part of it. It's great stuff. I can't wait. I think we're gonna tear into it. And, of course, I'm a songwriter and producer, and I have 13 or 14 brand new songs, and everybody kind of has their own songs. So lack of songs really isn't the problem. It's… To be honest, we've been touring so hardcore since I've been in the band — we've been around the world four or five times in the last five years — so it's just a matter of, really, 'Hey, let's stop touring for a bit and put together what we feel.. Let's sift through [all] the songs and song ideas and put together what we feel is gonna be the next best GUNS N' ROSES record."
Rose hinted in a rare new interview with Revolver magazine that a follow-up to the 2008 album "Chinese Democracy" could be in the works. Rose explained, "We recorded a lot of things before 'Chinese' was out. We've worked more on some of those things and we've written a few new things. But basically, we have what I call kind of the second half of 'Chinese'. That's already recorded. And then we have a remix album made of the songs from 'Chinese'. That's been done for a while, too."
GUNS N' ROSES will release "Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live From The Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas" on July 1 via Universal Music Enterprises. The show was filmed on November 21, 2012 during the "Appetite For Democracy" tour in celebration of the 25th anniversary of GUNS' classic 1987 debut, "Appetite For Destruction", as well as four years of touring behind 2008's "Chinese Democracy".
