Slash Interviewed by Murray Engleheart from metal-is .com: 9 sep 2000
Murray Engleheart :Any real chance of a Guns reunion?
Slash:You know what? Everybody keeps talking about it. Chances are, I don't see it in the foreseeable future (laughs). There's too much bullshit. I mean if somebody goes, “Hey, you know what? There's a weekend here, or a weekend there. You guys want to all get together and fucking go and do these two shows here at such and such a place or whatever”, I'd be like, well, first things first. It's got to be the original band and then you've got to get us all into one room and, schedules permitting, I have no fucking intention of slowing down what I'm doing with Snakepit. I'm saying that, but, more so than anything, I think the person that would rather not have that happen would be Axl. That's the whole reason this all started in the first place.

Chinese Democracy:all gatherings in chronological order
"It's a lot of different sounds. There's some other really heavy songs, there's a lot of aggressive songs, but they're all in different styles and different sounds. It is truly a melting pot."
-Axl Rose to Mtv News' Kurt Loder about the album.
"There will be elements of blues-based things on the new Guns record. It's a very diverse record. There's a lot of hip-hop beats, there's straight-ahead rock".
-Axl In the same interview.
"The tracks reminded me of the best moments of Seventies Pink Floyd or later Led Zeppelin," "There's nothing out there right now that has that kind of scope. Axl hasn't spent the last several years struggling to write Use Your Illusion over again."
Jim Barber, a former Geffen A&R executive who worked on the project.
"Oh My God" - the industrial-flavored track that surfaced on the End of Days soundtrack - is only one hint of what's to come. Imagine Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti remixed by Beck and Trent Reznor, and you'll have some sense of Axl's new sound. Song after song combines the edgy hard-rock force and pop smarts of vintage Guns n' Roses with surprisingly modern and ambitious musical textures-David Wild who interviewed Axl last nov. and listened to 12 songs
Loder: When do you think we will actually see this album? Is it possible to say early next year?
Rose: We're hoping. Yes, definitely, everything seems to be going well. Robin's departure was abrupt, sudden, you know, not expected...
