GN’R Album Update: ‘A Lot of New Stuff Is Ready to Come Out’ | Music News @ Ultimate-Guitar.Com

Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed shared a brief update on the band’s new album progress, saying that things are definitely happening.

Asked by Rock Revival on whether the fresh record’s coming any time soon, Dizzy replied:

“That’s the plan, although we haven’t really discussed it for a while. There’s a lot of stuff people need to hear that’s ready to come out. It’s gonna happen, I just don’t have an actual date for you yet. My fingers are crossed, but they’re getting a little bit looser. I think it’ll be happening soon.”

In other album updates, frontman Axl Rose has confirmed that the group already has two albums worth of unreleased material.

“We recorded a lot of things before ‘Chinese [Democracy]’ was out,” he told the Revolver Magazine. “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.”

As the band’s latest album, “Chinese Democracy,” saw its release in November 2008 via Geffen Records.

KOMMENTAR:

Ingen bootleg er kommet frem fra dette show…

Bandet fandt ud af under flyveturen til Auckland, at Axl var eftersøgt for besiddelse af (mulige) stoffer, hvilket viste sig ikke at være sandt i sidste ende, men da politiet bevogtede Axl’s hotelværelse i Sydney, besluttede de at undvige byen og ændrede deres flyverute til staterne for helt at undgå Australien.

KOMMENTAR:

Tre kilder på dette show – første kilde er ikke den bedste kvalitet, B, vil jeg give, men man kan høre Axl synge (87min). Kilde 2, er optaget lidt længere fra scenen lyder det som om, kvalitet B og 89 min. Sidste kilde er den værste, som jeg giver B-, den er sikkert fra de 2 andre kilder, den varer 87 min.

KOMMENTAR:

To kilder på dette show, det første er direkte rip fra videooptagelsen (100 min, B+), mono og statisk støj, men det kan høres. Anden kilde lyder også som om det er fra videoen, men er en smule bedre, lidt mørkere i lyden, men ellers meget ens…

STED: Entertainment Centre, Melbourne, Australia

De to eksisterende kilder er publikumsoptagelser, den første B+, optaget et stykke fra scenen, men man kan høre hvad der siges, varighed er 97min i mono. kilde 2 lyder som den samme som den første, men er angivet som master-recording, og lyden er lidt mere klar, og varer kun 90 min.

STED: Nippon Budokan, Tokyo, Japan

INFO: Det sidste show i Japan blev udsolgt på mindre end en halv time. Bandet spillede som om deres liv afhang af det, som det stod i Asahi Shinbun, der kaldte GnR det bedste band der nogensinde havde spillet i Japan. Før ‘Out Ta Get Me,’ fortæller Axl at de har drømt om at spille på Budokan i lang tid. Efter ‘My Michelle,’ undskylder Axl for at have spillet et kort sæt aftenen før (12.9). Steven har en trommesolo under ‘Rocket Queen.’ Efter ‘Mama Kin,’ siger Axl:Last night, you know, we played like sh*t!

KOMMENTAR:

Der findes nogle publikumsoptagelser, hvor “Grapes Of Wrath” er den med bedst lyd (A, 107min). De tre andre kan ikke anbefales…

Den følgende dag efter showet, rygtedes det, fra roadcrewet, at Axl havde låst sig inde på sit hotelværelse i Tokyo og nægtede at tale med nogen, af uvisse årsager. Han kan muligvis have været sur over resten af bandets opførsel…

1988-12-09 NHK Hall, Tokyo, Japan

STED: NHK Hall, Tokyo, Japan

INFO: Show nr. fire var et noget kort sæt denne aften, og Axl siger inden ‘You’re Crazy’: “Well, while we’re trying to decide which one of us has the worst hangover up here, we’re recording tonight, taping this show for future use. This is something called It’s So Easy.”Før’Mr. B,’ siger Axl:I did, a lot of interviews yesterday, for Japanese magazines and I get asked this question a lot. It’s about ‘Do I feel responsible to my audience, or responsible for my audience’s actions after being influenced by one of our songs. I don’t, you know, think I’m responsible for what someone decides to do because they, they see or hear and art form. But at the same time we care about our audience and I don’t want to see anybody get hurt or do something stupid; you gotta use your own common sense. You know you can’t fucking go get fucking plastered out of your mind and get in a car and think you’re gonna drive on the fucking freeway, that’s stupid. Maybe you’ll get away with it, maybe you’ll have some great times that you can live to tell about but you know, sooner or later you ain’t gonna live to tell about sh*t. So anyway, this next song is about a drug called heroin that possibly made this fuckin’ band break up and shut the f*ck up asshole [talking to a crowd member]. Anyway, um, basically this is just about anything that gets in the fucking way of, of you attaining your dreams. This is something called Mr. Brownstone.” Før hans guitar solo, siger Slash: “I drank fuckin’, since we’ve been here, more sake than you fuckin’ probably the entire country has in its whole fuckin’ history! Steven spiller trommesolo under ‘Rocket Queen.’

Axl spørger publikum efter sangen: “I don’t wanna offend anybody offend anybody, but are we really that bad tonight? I mean, this has got to be the quietest of all the three nights we’ve played so far. I don’t wanna beg for applause, but this is something called Sweet Child O’ Mine'”.  Izzy deler vokal med AxlMama Kin, selvom Axl’s stemme er mere prominent.
