Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose will be appearing as an animated version of himself in a new episode of “Scooby-Doo And Guess Who?.” The episode will premiere on February 25 at 6:00 p.m. PST / 9:00 p.m. EST on Boomerang. A trailer can be found over at Rolling Stone. A synopsis can also be read below:
“When Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy, and Scooby take a road trip down historic Route 66, they encounter a mysterious group of mud men who steal the Mystery Machine. While stranded in the desert, they check out an abandoned diner ‘to see if they have Wi-Fi inside’ — Daphne’s priorities — where they discover Axl, who turns out to already be buddies with Shaggy and Scooby. As the gang dives deeper into the case, each member begins to disappear, and it’s eventually up to Shaggy, Scooby, and Axl to find their friends and solve the mystery.”
Members of Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Slipknot, Rage Against The Machine, Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, and more are set to appear in a new documentary titled “Long Live Rock…Celebrate The Chaos.” The film, which offers “a deep dive into the culture of hard rock music,” was directed by Jonathan McHugh and it will receive a global premiere on March 11. More details can be found HERE. McHugh commented:
“Gary Spivack and I wanted to make a film celebrating the chaos of rock culture. Growing up in New York City, I would do whatever it took to get in to see bands like Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and other rock icons. We are so proud to shine a light on the most passionate fans in the world and the music that drives them.”
During his performance for the “Bud Light Seltzer Sessions Presents: New Years Eve 2021” livestream event, Post Malone performed covers of Alice in Chains’ “Rooster” and Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” with drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), producer/guitarist Andrew Watt, and bassist Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction). The group were also joined onstage by guitarist Slash (Guns N’ Roses) during “War Pigs.” You can see footage of all that at the 2:11:11 mark in the below video:
Guns N’ Roses have shared some pro-shot footage from their set at the 2019 Exit 111 festival in Manchester, Tennessee. The 32-minute video was released as part of the band’s “Not In This Lifetime Selects” series and it features the following tracks:
01. “Live And Let Die” (Wings cover)
02. “Shadow Of Your Love”
03. “Black Hole Sun” (Soundgarden cover)
04. “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” (Bob Dylan cover)

During a recent interview with Cleveland.com, Slash confirmed that he has been working on new material with Guns N’ Roses and Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators. The guitarist said that fans may get music from both bands in 2021.
Slash said the following when asked about a new Conspirators album:
“We did a week of initial pre-production and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year. I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff. And prior to that Duff [McKagan] and I did some jamming and we also worked on the Guns record, and I’ve had a couple of ancillary recordings and jams on top of that, so there’s been a lot of stuff going on. I’m really not good at slowing down and just sitting around.”
He also added the following when asked about release plans:
“I would like to think that we’d have some new stuff out next year — from both camps, I guess. It’s hard to say, but I would like to think we’ll have stuff out next year, yeah.”
Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses), Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees), Nate Mendel (Foo Fighters), Jefferson Angell (Walking Papers), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse) and more recently covered “Highwayman” for KEXP’s 2020 SMooCH benefit for the Seattle Children’s Hospital. You can check that out in the below video at the 53:40 mark. The track was written by Jimmy Webb in 1977, before being covered by Glen Campbell in 1979 and The Highwaymen in 1985. The latter was a supergroup featuring Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson.
