In a recent conversation with Sweetwater, Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist Slash revealed that he had been solely working on writing new music for Guns N’ Roses during the self-quarantine days.
One of the well-known musicians of social media and the legendary guitarist of Guns N’ Roses, Slash, joined an interview of Sweetwater channel on Youtube and answered some questions about how he had been spending his days during the lockdown.
Apparently, Slash has been mainly jamming with Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and singer Axl Rose and working on creating music for their new album.
Here’s how Slash spent his days during the self-quarantine:
“I’ve been pretty much a homebody, but I’ve been back and forth between my studio in the house and doing a lot of writing and recording on my own.
I’ve been jamming with Duff and I’ve been jamming with Axl, and I’ve been doing stuff like that, so we’ve been getting some work done that way.
But I haven’t been doing much else. I haven’t been doing any collaborations with the odd artists and whatnot – basically just focusing on writing new music and recording demos and recording guitar stuff for Guns and whatnot.”
Additionally, Slash mentioned how not being able to go on tour due to the Covid-19 pandemic affected him:
“It’s frustrating – because we would be on the road right now. The whole tour from March all the way through September is obviously canceled until next year. And then we don’t even know for sure what’s gonna happen next year. So that was frustrating.
I had a cat who was really sick, and it was sort of a blessing that I was home to be there for her the whole time that she was sick. And I had to put her down, actually, a few days ago.
But it would have been horrible if I had been gone and Meegan was left to deal with it all on her own. So there was somewhat of a blessing there. And it’s been good to be with the kids and just to sort of be around.
So those are the small blessings. So I try not to complain; I just sort of deal with it. The frustrating part about it was being home and doing nothing but housework for a couple of months.”
