The last time they came out with an announcement about new material, it ended up taking 17 years. Granted, the album did end up turning out pretty good, but with all the arguments between Axl Rose and former members including Slash, who knows what the end result will be? And another question is, will fans be willing to wait that long again? My theory is that the current generation of fans dies off in that time, and a whole new set of fans are the ones that see the new product. Here's the story so far.
