We don't need to remind everyone of Guns N' Roses' long-awaited 'Chinese Democracy' album, which took frontman Axl Rose well over a dozen years to release. Guitarist DJ Ashba recently told Artisan News Service that the band won't have nearly as much of a break between releases, and the follow-up to 'Chinese Democracy' could arrive sooner than later.

"We've been throwing around a bunch of ideas and it should be good, man," Ashba said. "We've got a lot of good stuff on the plate coming out. ... It won't take as long, I promise."

However, fellow guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal posted on his Facebook that GNR haven't gotten into a room to write as a band, and that "other than old unreleased ['Chinese Democracy'] songs, songs need to be written, jammed, recorded, tweaked, re-worked, re-recorded, mixed, re-mixed, mastered, re-mastered, art, new art, label approval, a game plan from the label that Axl approves" and more.

What a mixed mesasge! Let's hope Guns N' Roses get on the same page soon.
