During a recent interview with Japan's Metal Moment podcast, bassist Rob De Luca (SEBASTIAN BACH, UFO, SPREAD EAGLE) had the following to say about the long-awaited GUNS N' ROSES album "Chinese Democracy":
"I have heard a lot of the record at the after-parties [during the GUNS N' ROSES/SEBASTIAN BACH tour] when it's just kind of private and Axl [Rose, GN'R singer] decides to play some stuff and it's great, it's absolutely great. I've heard a bunch of stuff Bumblefoot's [guitar] on, amazingly beautiful stuff and Frank [Ferrer], the drummer, has been put on some stuff, but I have no idea when it's gonna come out.
"I was a big fan of the original GN'R. They were a big influence of mine and I love them very much and if it wasn't great now, I would probably be very disappointed because I loved it so much from the beginning.
"It really is amazing, it's so good the way it is. It's slightly different but it's just equally as great in a different way you know. I think 99% of the audience felt that on the tours. It was still a supergroup and Axl is a sweetheart of a guy. We were very blessed to be on that tour and they treated us very well, but I don't know any information about that record other than it's very good."
Rob De Luca recently completed a North American tour as the session bassist for UFO. Rob has also toured and/or recorded in HELMET, JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS, George Lynch (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB), "Metal" Mike Chlasciak (HALFORD, PAINMUSEUM), SPREAD EAGLE, OF EARTH, OUIJIPIG, and has recorded for Grammy-winning "Producer Of The Year" Steve Lillywhite.
