Guns N' Roses - Page 11
Although Britt Daniel is the front man for two acclaimed indie bands, Spoon and his side project the Divine Fits, he's demonstrated a love of classic rock. Last week, he covered Tom Petty's 'You Got Lucky' and he also took a shot at Bruce Springsteen's 'Hungry Heart' back in February. But in a new interview, he had some harsh words for Axl Rose.
You can add "Master of Understatement" to Axl Rose's long list of professional achievements. In a new interview the Guns N' Roses front man -- whose penchant for either being late to the stage or canceling gigs altogether has become the stuff of legend -- acknowledges, "I'm not a 'punctual' type of person."
Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal knows what you're going to ask, and he's tired of answering the question. During a live chat (March 2), the question of when fans can expect to hear new music from the band came up again, and Thal didn't mince words: "You know what?! Just forget about a new record until it happens. I mean, I can't even begin...How long have we been talking about a new f---ing record?"
Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Duff Mckagan of Guns N' Roses and Barrett Martin of the Screaming Trees have formed three-fourths of a rock supergroup that will rely on a cast of vocalists to finish their debut album. As of now, the group doesn't have a name but that hasn't dammed their inspiration.
It seems Axl Rose was well aware of the splash that Guns N' Roses would someday make, even before anyone else. In fact, legendary producer/manager Kim Fowley says Rose turned down an offer to leave his then-unsigned group -- though this proposal came complete with $50,000 in cold hard cash.
