Ultimate Classic Rock recently had a chitty chat with Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed, and had the audacity to ask whether Dizzy feels too much is made of the fact that the band goes on late and takes 50 years to release a record.
“As a matter of fact, I never thought about it, but yeah, it is silly,” says Reed. It’s silly to expect a concert to go on at whatever time is posted on the concert ticket. Like, yeah man — we all just have endless time to wait around for Guns N’ Roses to take the stage. None of us have to work the next day. If you guys need to come out at 1 a.m., you go right ahead.
“It’s a rock and roll concert, for Christ’s sake! I would think we get more than our share of that, certainly. But yeah, (music) is supposed to be inspired by creativity and good things in life, and having a good time,” says Reed. Such a fucking rock douche thing to say.
Reed says that “hopefully,” we’ll hear new music from Guns N’ Roses soon. I liked Chinese Democracy, actually. So, before you rip me apart…recognize, bitch.
“That’s the plan. But right now, we’re out there rocking Chinese Democracy and some of the older classic songs, maybe some new surprises, and that’s that,” says Reed. “But I know there’s always something brewing. There should be some new music coming out at some point, for sure.”
At some point. Like ten to 15 years. I like to refer to the time between GN’R albums like I do prison stints. “First it was five to 10, and then, it was 10 to 15.”
That wasn’t very funny, I admit. But it’s late, and I’m tired.
