Excerpted from The Los Angles Times: tIn a nearly hourlong interview with fans in London, Guns N’ Roses founder and lead singer Axl Rose suggested that he may work on new music with formerly estranged band-mates Slash and Duff McKagan.
The singer also said that he and guitarist Angus Young of AC/DC, for whom Rose is serving as vocalist during a series of concerts, have discussed working on new music together.
Rose acknowledged these possibilities during a recent fan forum at the China Exchange, a London cultural center. He also said that the reunited Guns N’ Roses would be touring for the foreseeable future, and that concerts in England were on the schedule.
The three musicians are all part of the “classic” Guns N’ Roses lineup that reunited earlier this year for Coachella and a North American tour.
