Slash Says Axl Rose Has “A Ton Of Shit” Recorded For Possible New Guns N’ Roses Album

Slash has revealed that Axl Rose actually already has a “ton” of new material recorded that can be used for a possible new Guns N’ Roses album. He told Classic Rock magazine the following:

“Now that we’ve actually mended fences and gotten back together and done this, we’re going to keep it together. Because all the bullshit we’d had that sort of caused all of the shit back in the ’90s, there was a lot of outside influence on that, so now that that’s sort of eliminated, we’re just left to our own devices. We get along fucking great.”

“I think we’re going to go well on into the future. I mean, Axl’s got a ton of shit that he recorded already, so we’re going to get in there and just start getting into that thing, and then if we do a record and then do a tour, I could see that cycle going on endlessly.”

Slash Provides Soundtrack For New “Halloween Horror Nights” Maze At Universal Studios Hollywood

Slash (Guns N’ Roses) has produced and composed an original score for a new “Halloween Horror Nights” maze at Universal Studios Hollywood. The maze is based on the original “Universal Monsters,” including Dracula, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster, etc. and fans will have a chance to check it out when “Halloween Horror Nights” returns on September 14.

Slash commented:

“As a fan of horror movies and of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’, I jumped at the chance to once again collaborate with Universal Studios Hollywood to produce what might be interpreted as a soundtrack for the maze. Similar to the way music affects a film, I wanted to compose a score for the legions of infamous characters featured in the maze to elicit a greater sense of terror for the guests. In the end, the goal is to ultimately make the guests feel as if they are playing an integral role in a classic Monster movie.”

John Murdy, creative director at Universal Studios Hollywood and executive producer of “Halloween Horror Nights”, added:

“This maze is the ultimate melding of two of history’s greatest icons — classic monsters and the top guitar player of all time. Slash’s intuitive understanding of the characters’ struggles brings enormous depth to the maze to epitomize a living-movie experience for our guests.

This is the second time we’ve had the great fortune to collaborate with Slash on a ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ maze, and it is a distinct honor to bring his expertise to the event where guests can enjoy a truly exclusive opportunity.”

Slash Recorded An Unreleased Song With Chester Bennington

During a recent interview with Variety, Slash revealed that he recorded an unreleased song with the late Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) for his first solo album. The track was actually a different version of “Doctor Alibi,” a song the late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) ended up singing on instead.

Slash said the following about the track:

“When I was doing my first solo record, I worked with a lot of different people, some of whom, for whatever reason, didn’t end up on the record. One was with Chester. We did a song and Linkin Park at the time didn’t allow it to happen, so I did it with Lemmy [Kilmister]. The guy who engineered my demos sent it to me and I sent it to Chester’s family. But it was a trip cause the song [called ‘Doctor Alibi’] really speaks to his state of mind.”

He also added the following when asked if it will ever be released:

“His family has got it so it would be totally up to them. It was really good. He was awesome. It would be fine with me if they wanted to [release] it. Musically it’s basically the same as the Lemmy song, but the lyrics are really poignant.”

Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators Premiere New Song “Mind Your Manners”

Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have premiered a new song titled “Mind Your Manners.” This track is from the band’s new album “Living The Dream,” which will be released on September 21.

Slash commented:

“I wrote this song on the spot to help the band get up and running once we got back in the studio this past January. It’s just a go-for-it type of song. Pretty straightforward rock and fun to play.”

Kennedy added:

“‘Mind Your Manners’ was something I didn’t hear until the guys had started jamming together. It’s a cool, up-tempo sort of thing and I knew immediately it would have its own place on this record. Lyrically, it’s about how when things are going well there always tends to be someone who tries to rain on your parade and knock you down. You have to keep people like that in check and not let them get to you.”
