DIZZY REED Says There Is 'A Lot' Of 'Fantastic' New GUNS N' ROSES Music That Needs To Be Heard

David "Gus" Griesinger of BackstageAxxess.com recently conducted an interview with GUNS N' ROSES, THE DEAD DAISIES and HOOKERS 'N' BLOW keyboardist Dizzy Reed. You can now watch the chat below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).

On the status of the next GUNS N' ROSES studio album:

"Last I heard, there's a lot of music that has been recorded, a lot of stuff that's done, a lot of stuff that's almost done, and I think it's just a matter of picking out which songs are gonna come out in the next phase. And last I heard, that's what was happening. The main thing is, when it's ready to come out, it'll come out."

On whether the next GUNS N' ROSES album will consist of new songs or music that is left over from the "Chinese Democracy" sessions:

"There's a lot [of material]. You can call it leftovers, but since no one's heard it, technically it's new material. But there's stuff that's been recorded and conceived since then as well. But it's fantastic music, and I really hope it gets out, 'cause people need to hear it. It's great stuff."

On his long-awaited solo album:

"I'm still in the process of mixing my record finally. I tracked 12 songs over about a two-year period, but it's been about four years. I just kind of put it on the backburner, 'cause I couldn't get 'em mixed right, and I finally found the right guy to mix 'em, so that should be done hopefully by the first part of next year."

With almost 25 years of service, Reed is the longest-standing member of the current GUNS lineup after singer Axl Rose.
