Earlier this month, GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist DJ Ashba was interviewed about the band’s upcoming appearance at the Greenfest Powered By Rock The City on July 1 in Bucharest, Romania. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
In a recent interview with EspyRock, Ashba stated about GUNS N’ ROSES‘ plans to record the follow-up to 2008’s “Chinese Democracy”, “We’re working on a lot of new stuff . . . Getting in and writing with everybody [is] what I’m excited about the most but when it happens has still to be decided. . . I think together, as a band, we’re all looking forward to putting together what we feel will be the next best GUNS N’ ROSES record.”
He added, “I think everyone is so talented in this band and as a band, we’re so incredibly tight, like a family, and we play insanely well together. I think if this band does put out a new record, it’s obviously going to be a lot different than ‘Chinese Democracy’ or anything you’ve ever heard because it is a completely new band in that aspect.”
In addition to Ashba and sole original member Axl Rose (vocals), the current lineup of GUNS N’ ROSES includes guitarists Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal and Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
