Axl Has 4 Albums Worth of Guns N' Roses Songs

(antiMusic) A couple of readers wrote in and asked why we are on GNR overload. Our plan is to post at least one GNR story a day until a firm release date for 'Chinese Democracy' is set. This is our form of protest over the delay. It may sound crazy to give them press to pressure them to put out an album, but the reality is if they don't hurry it up, then people are going to be sick of hearing about GNR by the time the alleged album comes out. With that in mind, here is today's Patience MeterŪ reading: it has been 5,330 days since the last new Guns N' Roses album was released.

Now on to today's story: It's a little strange that the best source of information about Guns N' Roses these days is coming from Sebastian Bach, but he and Axl are buddies and we'll take what we can get. Rolling Stone spoke with Bach recently during the conversation Sebastian said that he has heard "at least four albums' worth" of finished Guns N' Roses songs.

He recounted the tale of a night at Electric Lady studios in New York back in January 2007 when Axl had a bit of a listening party from midnight to 6 AM. Bach says Axl told him that one slow, grinding song called 'The General' is "the sequel to 'Estranged,' that goes to the parable that Del James wrote of the trilogy"

"He's like the George Lucas of rock," Bach said. "I know for a fact it's not him saying, 'Let's wait and work on [Chinese Democracy] some more. He has a whole new business team. Irving Azoff is in control, along with Andy Gould. They are trying to figure out the best way to put the music out." - We'll see, read the full RS report
