John Soeder of the Cleveland Plain Dealer chatted with Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed and bass player Tommy Stinson about the group, and their long awaited ‘Chinese Democracy.’ Stinson says frontman Axl Rose delivers “more soulful singing” on the new album. “You really get to hear some different tones in his voice which don’t lend themselves to traditional bluesy riff-rock,” he said. “And the lyrics are a lot more in-depth, with deeper sentiment and emotion than some of the earlier stuff.” Dizzy says he has no hard feelings for the four ex-members of G N’ R – Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Izzy Stradlin, who are in the process of forming their own band. “I wish them the best,” Reed said. “If they want to go out and hit the road, cool. No one can stop them. They’re great players in their own right.” Cleveland.com has since removed the article.
