Guns N' Roses: More Than Blanks

(Originally published July 31, 1998)

Singer Axl Rose, the sole remaining original gunner, has at last put together a semi-stable lineup for the long-dormant group, which now includes former Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson, Vandals drummer Josh Freese, and ex-Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck.

A source close to Rose says the new material the quartet is working up is indeed "techno influenced"-hard as that may be to believe with die-hard punkers Stinson and Freese on board-but still "sounds like Guns N' Roses."

No word yet on when we can actually expect a new GN'R album, but, says the source, Axl and the boys (who are currently rehearsing in Woodland Hills, Calif.) will be entering the studio to begin laying down tracks "imminently."
