Four Guns N’Roses Albums Coming Soon?


July 22, 2008 reports the following. We all knew that a long-awaited Guns N’ Roses track, Shackler’s Revenge, was going to debut with Rock Band 2. But what we didn’t know was that four Guns N’ Roses albums could be dropping as early as September – so says a “rep” from Harmonix Systems, makers of the Rock Band video game.

But is the story even true?

During the recent E3 Games Show, a man claiming to be a Harmonix rep was interviewed about the upcoming Rock Band 2. After talking about the improved instruments, which includes a $300 premium drum set, the rep – who assumed he was talking off the record – let it slip that four Guns N’ Roses albums are planned to be released to coincide with the MTV Video Music Awards.

“We work with MTV to make Rock Band,” the rep says. “From what I’ve heard, there’s going to be four simultaneous albums to be released that coincide with the VMAs.”

The rep raves about the new track Shackler’s Revenge. But he expresses some disappointment in the change in the overall Guns N’ Roses sound, about how he misses Slash, and how the new material sounds “industrial” and “polished.”
