Lets see how many years it will take before that so called "material for 3 albums" gets out.
Personally, I think it would be best if a new album came within one-two years max. That is, if it is true that there are a lot of 'finished' (but what is 'finished' for Axl if there will be years of re-re-recordings) songs for 'next' albums.
I really hope that we will see new albums in the next years, and not yet another 5-10+ year break.
Also looking for a 'sign of life' from the GNR camp. An announcement on the homepage ("Chinese democracy lands in America") about the album just isn't enough. People are already wondering what is going on and I hope the tradition of not giving information to the fans about the current state of the band and the future won't be repeated.
While the metal is hot, you have to .... it.
I keep wondering what kind of material of the Use Your Illusion period is still waiting to be released. Will we ever know?
Also, I hope history will not repeat itself (members leaving/replaced etc. --> more time/years wasted). You never know what happens to people. People get older, some things can happen, who knows how many years we will be able to enjoy the music.
This album could be a turning point. Before the last "world tour", there was almost no sign of life, reputation almost zero; now there is a strong album that people talk about, it could be a real new start. GNR is back on the 'map', getting attention and possibly new fans also. The question is, what will they do with it?
