Guns N' Roses may release a new album soon, guitarist DJ Ashba says
Guns N' Roses may release a new album soon, guitarist DJ Ashba says, adding that singer Axl Rose has a lot of things up his sleeve.
The rock group's latest album, "Chinese Democracy", has sold at least one million albums in the United States since its 2009 release but was not as successful as many of its previous records, such as "Use Your Illussion II" and "Appetite For Destruction", which featured a different band line-up that included guitarist Slash.
"We're talking about that right now," Ashba told the Artisan News Service in a video interview. "We're been throwing around a bunch of ideas and it should be good. We've got a lot of good stuff on the plate coming out. It won't take as long, I promise. I'm excited to get this next one rolling. Axl has a lot of good (expletive) up his sleeve."
Guns N' Roses became famous in the 1980s and 1990s and released commercial hits such as "Welcome to the Jungle" and "Don't Cry". Rose is the only original band member. Guitarist Slash and drummer Steven Adler have since quit or had been forced to leave the group amid drug issues and legal disputes.
The band has been touring the world since the group released "Chinese Democracy". Guns N' Roses is set to perform concerts in the United States again beginning in February. The group's members angered thousands of fans several months ago at a concert in Ireland when they walked off the stage after several people in the crowd threw bottles at Rose.
