I’m calling it now, we’re never getting a new album. I hope I’m wrong though

That's pretty much business as usual for any band these days, isn't it? They're sending riffs that they've recorded in hotel rooms (well, completed CDII songs in Axl's case) amongst themselves, and they'll convene in a few months to record an album. They're sharing material, but no actual studio recording by the band has been done.

I’m not debating their method, but Slash’s inconsistency. One minute he says there’s material, the next he says nothing has been done yet. That’s the bit that makes me suspicious.

I don't regard it as an inconsistency, it's simply how bands work. There's material (riffs recorded on phones in hotel rooms, old CD demos) but they haven't formally got together in studio to record it.

When Kirk Hammett lost his phone full of riff ideas for Hardwired, "nothing had been done" on recording the album, but he still had 300 riffs in mind for it.

It’s how the band works? In what way is it working?

I realize that the creative process can be anything you want it to be...but in large part this is why they don’t do much press. Eventually they’ll be asked a question that they don’t want to answer.

They are ‘working’ as a band insofar as the contracts bind them to the band as employees. Let’s face it...Axl as the owner gets the work and then basically subcontracts to other specialists. That’s not a band, it’s a business relationship. Why would anyone be interested in creating together if Axl is the sole benifactor? If slash gets too expensive he’ll find DJ Ashby’s or Robin or whoever. Same with Duff.

I think we all thought there’d eventually be something more to this....that the nostalgia act was a bridge to more. Everyone (except Axl) was way more productive solo. Together they’re just coasting.

I went through the same thing...last time gnr cape around, i thought i wouldn’t go....at the last second, i bought one ticket and went solo. Was still fun but god damn I’ve listened to these songs 10 million times now.

Where do we go now?

I can see that, I'm sorta the same. I saw the NITLT in 2016, great show. Loved it. They came back around to nearby Hershey, PA the following year. Probably 90 minutes away. Nice summer night in August. I didn't go. Nope. Just saw them already. I forget if they played indoor stadiums one winter, regardless didn't go.

If they tour let's say 2020, maybe I would see them, but probably only if they released some sort of new material. Otherwise, on principal, I just couldn't I don't think.

Well, I'm not sure if Slash would do that, but it's way easier today to record a really good and professional guitar track with nothing more than an audio interface and ProTools in a MacBook. And of course, he could always just grab his own stage gear and record stuff in-line in the soundcheck or whenever he wants.

Also Axl and Caram worked with the "reamp" technique in the Chinese Democracy days. So Slash could record a clean guitar track (even though his output could have a regular amp sound for reference) and send it to Axl.
