GUNS N' ROSES bassist TOMMY STINSON has stunned fans by promising the
long-delayed follow-up album to 1993's SPAGHETTI INCIDENT will finally be
released this year (05) to proceed a European tour.
The NOVEMBER RAIN rockers' only original bandmember Axl Rose has been the
focus of numerous reports into his reclusive existence and his perfectionist
approach to the still-unheard CHINESE DEMOCRACY disc, which was initially due
for release in
the late '90s.
However, following years of remixing and delayed release dates, Stinson is
adamant the LP will hit record store shelves imminently and that summer gigs
are currently being booked.
He says, "They're finishing up the mixing (of the new album) right now.
Sorting out what songs are going on it and artwork and s**t. And hopefully
sooner than later, it'll come out. I understand there's probably some European
dates booked in
the summer. Hopefully, that'll happen and we'll get over there and do it.
"Once it gets going, it's a lot of fun. There's a lot of f**kin' work
involved with getting it going, but once it is going, it's a lot of fun."
