There’s a rumour circulating amongst those allegedly ‘in the know’ that the albums been done for a while now (c.18 months). Would this really be so hard to believe? After all, Axl himself said what he considers to be the second half of Chinese has already been recorded. With the proficiency and work ethic of Slash and Duff, I can’t see that it would’ve taken them long to do their overdubs after the reunion in 2016.

Which begs the question, what is the hold up? Is it negotiations with the record company as I have previously suggested? Has to be a possibility  Undecided

I can think of one ongoing thing that could've forced plans to be changed..... A thing that made the whole entertainment industry basically stop.

Not saying that's a reason, because people know better than me. I'm just making excuses after all.....


And the fact that 2020 was a year most of us just want to forget, doesn't matter.... After all, there is no reason why the album should've have been out before it was done. Right? Cheesy

I think what puzzles most people the most (me included) is not really that the new album is not ready (this is obvious, it's not been released...), it has more to do with why (is not ready).

We've all been down this road before. As GNR fans, we are very well aware that they do things differently than most bands and I think most of us, have learnt to accept and live by the motto "Don't expect it and you won't be disappointed".

I'm one of the oldest fans here, I will be 46 in a few months. Been a fan since 1989. So I know what it means to be a fan of this band. GNR has released 4.5 albums (I consider GNR Lies to be half an album) worth of original material in 36 years. One album per every 8-9 years.  This is a fact.

They are obviously not your most prolific band. This is an undeniable fact as well.

Now the next question that arises is...why? At least, it's the most interesting question to me. Why does this band take an average of 9 years to release a new album (original songs)?

Potential reasons:

Constant line-up changes
Creative differences
Leaked songs
Multiple Managers who were not really interested in "helping the band"
Feuds with record companies
Reunion tours
Pandemics
Law suits against or from former members, wives, girlfriends, record companies, State Government, etc
Publishing rights
etc.

All of those reasons are well known by most of us who visit these boards. Again, we've come to realize this band is different than all the rest. That's ok, but why is it so hard to admit that maybe one of the reasons why this band takes so long between albums could also be something else...

Yes, I know Axl will not release anything that he's not fully satisfied with, but could laziness have gotten in the way? or maybe procrastination? or a writer's block? or fear? In my eyes those could be valid points too.

Fuck, I write for a living as well (Thanx God not in English) and I'm afraid every time I face a blank page. I've gone through writer's block, fear, procrastination...I know how that feels and I'm not nearly as gifted as Axl Rose nor I have the pressure of being the main lyricist in one of the most successful rock bands in the history...

I get that.

But I know what fear, procrastination and lack of desire feels like...and I've purposely delayed projects, etc. simply cause I just didn't really feel like writing. Did I blame myself for the delay? No, There's always external factors to blame. It's really hard to blame things on us, but my personal situations (fear, writer's block, laziness) are just as responsible for my constant delays as external situations I may have encountered over the past 15 years.

What I'm trying to say is, some external factors may have played a huge rol in the constant delaying of new music being released, and that's undeniable, but every other band out there (and artists, whether is big or small) may have dealt with similar or worse external factors than GNR, and that has not stopped them from releasing new music (art), and if other bands seem to find a way to navigate through the storm/s. Why GNR can't?

We have a new tour kicking off soon. Can't wait to see the new stage, set list, Axl, Slash, Duff...it's exciting to be a GNR fan when we are a just a few weeks away from a new tour. What's going to happen? Which songs will be played? Will the stage be different? How fit or unfit will the guys look?

But the question most of us around here will be asking ourselves is "Will new music be performed?"

I do hope some new music will be performed. If it doesn't, honestly I will be disappointed, can't help it. I won't rant, I won't be a hater, but it is what it is.  I will definitely enjoy the videos on YouTube when they come out and most likely attend their show when they come to Europe next year but until then, I do hope that one day, GNR (with Axl, Slash and Duff) release or perform new music again.
















Great post. I also write as the main part of my job and I understand the internal (personal) difficulties that can arise, but at the end of the day I agree that when something does not get produced the easiest thing to do is to blame external events (for example: if only the kid would be quiet I could concentrate!!) Unfortunately, no one can combat those demons except the writer.

I think we can both agree that an album is in the future. I just feel that it will be in the distant future, where as you have blind faith. beer

You make a million excuses of why GNR don't put out an album. I point out the BS you spew.  I tell it like it is. Hopefully we get a new album but I wouldn't hold my breath. beer
agree with you man  ok

Axl has only released one album in almost 30 years
THAT's facts and history

True, but it would be a damn shame for the world not to hear the rest of what Axl has been working on all these years

The act of writing, and recording a song or idea for a song, seems like the creative act. But, the act of recording take after take, mixing, mastering and coming up with a release and marketing plan - those are all business acts, are they not?

I hope that they release new music, but at this point I don't see a financial imperative to do so.

Well, untill he/them decides to share, yes. You dont share art you are not 100% ready to release, or at least GnR dont want to.

Im sure Axl have made some songs he dont want to share at all.. like most others artists with integrity.. I dont think its like everything Axl makes of music is Gold(at least not for him/the band), and if he/the band dont want to release music they dont feel is good enough... thats ok

Edit: that said, im sure lots of us would think it was good if we got to hear it, but thats dosent matter if the artist is not satesfied..

In a way, yes. But in another way, no.

To the record company, it's all about selling the product. But to an artist, all that would be about presenting the end result of the creative work. Obviously, if you're proud of something you did, you'd want it to get noticed....

Surely the record company would be interested in promoting the product also as it would boost revenue?

That's what you hope for.

But at the end of the day, they want to make a profit. Sometimes you need to spend money to make money.

I think the problem lies with AXL in that he is a perfectionist. Hopefully Slash and Duff can help the process. beer
