Former Guns N’ Roses publicist Arlett Vereecke is reporting that Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Izzy Stradlin have been writing new music, but without Axl Rose.
She exclusively tells Team Rock: “I know they’re doing some recording. They’re definitely doing something there in the studio. Axl hasn’t been there, but Slash is definitely in there and it’s not for anyone else.”
Ex-Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven also suggests that Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin have been working together.
He says: “Duff and Izzy were in the studio before Christmas doing stuff. At a casual glance I think they’ve got at least a couple of tracks down.”
Recent Guns N’ Roses rumors on MyGNRForum from Eddie Money indicate that the following GNR 2016 tour dates are in the works.
Dallas – May
San Francisco – May
Foxborough, MA (Gillette Stadium) – Early August
Chicago, IL (Solider Field – 2 shows on July 4th weekend
Toronto – July 16th with option for second show on July 17th
He also recently posted:
“Izzy is in for sure. My source didn’t say anything about Matt Sorum and said that there is still discussion about having Adler be a part of the tour on some level. They didn’t say that Sorum would not be involved though.”
“[Izzy will] not [play] the entire show as far as I know.”
“[Steven] is not rehearsing with them but it doesn’t mean that he’s excluded completely. Honestly, I haven’t heard one way or the other.”
“There’s an oversight management team and then each principal member (Axl, Slash, and Duff) have a representative on a committee, and there is also a forth person to look out for the interests of the unrepresented participants (Richard, Dizzy, and Izzy, Tracy, Roberta, Teddy Zig Zag, etc).”
