The iconic rock band completed their latest world tour, Not In This Lifetime, last year. And now it looks like Guns N’ Roses are working on their first studio album since 2008’s Chinese Democracy. Giving an update to Rock Cellar, Slash said: “There is material that Axl’s [Rose, vocals] been working on for a while. It could be enough for a record if we put it all together.”

Slash continued: “The whole thing of Guns N’ Roses getting in the studio and getting this record done – with myself and with Duff [McKagan, bass] and all that – it’s really just getting started. So it’s really hard to say.”

These comments add to what the 53-year-old said in April, teasing to Consequence of Sound: “There’s a handful of gigs that are happening at the very end of September and through October, so [Louder Than Life is] just one of them.

“And then it’s really just focusing on getting a new record done.”

On if a new Guns N’ Roses album would release before the next team up with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators record, Slash was hopeful.

He said: “I would hope so! I mean that’s one of those things where it remains to be seen, but I would hope so. But we’ll see what happens.”

On the rumoured return of AC/DC, Slash enthused: “Where do I start? AC/DC is bar none, with the exception of the [Rolling] Stones, the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band ever.

“The Stones will always come first for me and then AC/DC.”

“There are no other bands that actually play that brand of really ’50s-influenced straight-up rock ‘n’ roll like AC/DC.”

He added: “I love them for that. I think Phil Rudd is one of the best drummers of all time. So anytime he was not in the band, I was always disappointed.

“But it’s great that Cliff [Williams is] going to be back because I remember being backstage with those guys at the end of the last tour and him saying that he was gone and that he was retired.

“So it’s great that everybody’s back, but it’s especially awesome that Brian [Johnson] is back.”
