Slash has said he’s optimistic that 2021 will see new releases from both Guns N’ Roses and his band with Myles Kennedy.

The guitarist said he’s recently been working with bassist Duff McKagan on material expected to form the first new Guns N’ Roses album since 2008’s notoriously delayed ‘Chinese Democracy’.

A follow-up to 2018’s ‘Living The Dream’, which would be the guitarist’s fifth solo album and fourth billed as ‘Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators’, could also be on the cards, with 20 songs reportedly lined up for the project.

“We did a week of initial pre-production [on the new Conspirators album] and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year,” Slash told

at Hollywood Palladium on October 16, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

“I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff. And prior to that, Duff [McKagan] and I did some jamming and we also worked on the Guns record, and I’ve had a couple of ancillary recordings and jams on top of that, so there’s been a lot of stuff going on. I’m really not good at slowing down and just sitting around.”

He added: “I would like to think that we’d have some new stuff out next year — from both camps, I guess. It’s hard to say, but I would like to think we’ll have stuff out next year.”

Slash also spoke about Eddie Van Halen’s passing as a “huge blow,” explaining that the two had been in contact towards the end of his life.

“I actually met Eddie back in 1988,” the Guns N’ Roses man explained. “He came up to me at a Stevie Ray Vaughan concert and gave me a compliment on one of my guitar solos, which always sticks with me as one of the nicest, most selfless things any fellow guitar player ever did. We’ve were sort of friends ever since then.

“On top of the fact he’s a monster musician, he was just a really good guy, a really sweet guy.”

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ End Credits Scene Explained

With every superhero movie, an end credits scene has come to be expected now — whether they act as teases to a sequel, essential building blocks for a wider cinematic universe, or just fun meta-nods. The saving grace (or greatest sin, depending on who you ask) of Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman films is that they exist in their own little corner of the DC Universe, with the 2017 Wonder Woman even eschewing the post-credits scene […]
