Guns N' Roses hasn't hit the studio yet, but band members have been recording some rough demos of songs that could make it onto a new album. Guitarist Richard Fortus describes the process as '...sort of assembling ideas, but not going into a studio and actually recording a new album.' Any formal recording will need to get done between dates or legs of the current GNR tour, which is slated to run through November. Speaking on The Stage Left podcast, Fortus also said Axl Rose has a knack for formulating songs; 'The genius of Axl is his ability to assemble songs from different parts and make them feel cohesive as a song. And I've never seen anybody able to do that in the same way.'
