During the pandemic, Slash and his band mates from Guns N’ Roses were busy making new songs.The guitarist claims he jammed with singer Axl Rose and bassist Duff McKagan and arranged some guitar tracks for a long-awaited new GNR’s project.

The band was scheduled to tour until September 2020 but was forced to postpone their dates owing to the spread of the disease.

Slash claims he’s kept busy writing and recording new Guns N’ Roses material during the lockout. Slash adds: “I can’t say much, but I’ve heard bits and bobs and it’s pretty epic. I do want to spread good news, but not detailed news, I guess. Hopefully that’ll put a spring in your step!”

The band will also release a new children’s book based on their classic Appetite For Destruction track Sweet Child O’ Mine later this year. Published by Jimmy Patterson Publishing on September 1, Sweet Child O’ Mine will feature illustrations by Jennifer Zivoin.
