M Shadows Comments on Chinese Democracy
Ultimate-Guitar.com: Do you have any feelings about the Chinese Democracy record?
M. Shadows: There are great songs there and Axl is a great singer; he's an amazing singer. It's hard because a lot of times it's that feeling a band gives you when you know they're a band and you know what it's about. And there's so much drama that goes around that camp. I've met Bumblefoot and a couple of the guys in that band and they're great guys and great players — it's just really hard to play in that shadow of what Guns N' Roses was. And I think that kind of takes you away from when you're listening to a record and what it's all about.
What made Dark Side Of The Moon so great is some of the mystique and where it was coming from and just the authenticity of it. And that's what kinda sucks about the new Guns N' Roses — it's really hard to put your finger on it but it's not the same thing. I think for all of us it would be really nice if they could just get it together and do some stuff but that's probably never gonna happen.
