AXL ROSE SAYS HE HAS PRESENTED NEW MATERIAL TO BOTH HIS GUNS BANDMATES AND AC/DC’S ANGUS YOUNG
Axl Rose says he’s presented his Guns N’ Roses bandmates Slash and Duff McKagan with new material.
The GN’R frontman also hints he might collaborate with his current AC/DC colleague Angus Young. The band hired him to replace Brian Johnson in April, after the singer was advised by doctors to stop performing or risk total hearing loss.
Axl says, “We are working on new stuff. I got a lot of stuff together and I played some stuff for Slash and Duff and they liked it, they might be on it…we don’t know. Angus and I are talking about working together.”
The vocalist also discussed his chemistry with Angus Young, saying he felt “protective” of him.
He adds, “It’s great. I can’t really explain it. I feel protective, like I do not want to let this guy down, more than almost anybody I’ve ever met – and I don’t know why.
He’s very responsive to me. And they said they hadn’t seen him this happy, they hadn’t seen him moving around between songs as much before. So that’s kind of a neat thing between musicians.”
AC/DC and Rose are currently touring in support of their latest album Rock Or Bust. Guns N’ Roses hit the road on their Not In This Lifetime tour later this month.
