Listen to Guns N' Roses on iHeartRadio

Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal has a plan to get the band's next album in stores sooner rather than later.  He tells "Rolling Stone" that when it comes to his solo work, he's been trying to complete one song every month. 

Thal explains that the method helps keep things at a "constant simmer" rather than building up to a big boil and then shutting the flame off to go on the road. 

GNR have been doing just that a lot recently, but Thal says the band's touring schedule should be clearing up soon.  He hopes they'll spend that free time working on new music, but admits he's not sure the rest of the band will want to follow his song-a-month plan.  Still, he says Guns N' Roses is a great band that needs to make new music, and he's optimistic that will soon become the group's first priority. 

Meanwhile, Thal's GNR bandmate Richard Fortus recently told Australia's that the rockers' follow-up to 2008's "Chinese Democracy" is well on its way to being complete.  He even suggested that the album could be in stores sometime in 2014.
