Guns N' Roses Guitarist Doesn't Want Band To Release Another Album
In a wide-ranging interview with Classic Rock's Australian correspondent Steve Mascord, Thal also blames the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame for singer Axl Rose's non-appearance at GN'R's induction, and explains what happened at the end of the Gunners' final Indian show in December, when bassist Tommy Stinson was reported to have thrown a tantrum.
Guns N'Roses members have spoken about working this year on a follow-up for 2008's Chinese Democracy. "There's been talk all the time within us about the next album and what we're going to do and when we're going to do it," Thal says. "But you know, life always gets in the way. Things get in the way.
"It's hard to have the momentum and the focus and everything that you need. It's hard to put everything aside and do a whole album.
"Personally, I don't want to do an album. I would like to just do a song. Let's just bite off a song and get a song out there and then bite off another song and get that out there.
"When there's so much touring and so much other stuff going on, don't try and take on 14 songs. Do a song, then another song, then another song and then figure it out from there." And what about the rock hall no show?
