Guns N’ Roses just debuted a reworked version of rare and previously unreleased track “Silkworms”. It was reportedly written during the sessions for “Chinese Democracy” by keyboardists Chris Pitman and Dizzy Reed. They performed the newly named “Absurd” at a gig on Tuesday at Boston’s Fenway Park – it’s the second show of their We’re F’N Back! tour.
“Some of you might have heard this under another name, but this is really kind of absurd to try this,” Axl Rose said.
Guns N’ Roses first performed “Silkworms” in 2001 at a New Year show at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, and then weeks later at the Rock In Rio festival.
Although there’s been no update about a new album from the band, guitarist Slash that they’re working on new recordings. In an interview last year, he also revealed a project he was working on with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.
“I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff,” Slash told Cleveland.com. “And prior to that Duff (McKagan) and I did some jamming and we also worked on the Guns record, and I’ve had a couple of ancillary recordings and jams on top of that, so there’s been a lot of stuff going on.”
“I’m really not good at slowing down and just sitting around,” he continued. “I would like to think that we’d have some new stuff out next year — from both camps, I guess. It’s hard to say, but I would like to think we’ll have stuff out next year, yeah.”
