In a recent interview with the Daily Star, Slash shared some interesting news about Guns N’ Roses.

Guns N’ Roses are trying to make their own record and I’m working with them in that capacity, but this [solo album] didn’t involve anyone else. It was my own side thing, so I wasn’t dragging my own guys in.

Although, the new album by Slash “Orgy Of The Damned” had quite a few guests, including Brian Johnson, Steven Tyler, Demi Lovato and Iggy Pop. Guns N’ Roses hasn’t released a full-length album since “Chinese Democracy” in 2008, an album that Slash did not participate in. The last album he played on was “The Spaghetti Incident?” in 1993. Since rejoining the band in 2016, Slash has contributed to several singles, including “Shadow of Your Love,” “Absurd,” “Hard Skool,” “Perhaps,” and “The General.” In a 2022 interview with Rolling Stone, Slash discussed the highlights of reuniting with Guns N’ Roses.

I think the biggest thing was getting past this horrible black cloud that was perpetuating, having to do with me and Axl. We had a lot of issues born out of third-party stuff. It was very insidious, and the longer we didn’t talk, the more it got blown out of proportion. But the more significant part was, when Axl and Duff [McKagan] and I first got into a room playing, it was just like this fucking thing that I can’t even really verbally describe. It was like, ‘Whoa, that’s what that is.’ Then, just to go out and play together, it’s like, I wonder how the fuck we got into that mess that we were in in the ’90s.
