Axl Rose finally addressed the recent hot rumors surrounding Guns N’ Roses and a possible reunion of the band’s original lineup.

“Contrary to anyone’s claims there are no concrete plans nor were there ever for a tour, a relaunch or sponsors (n’ certainly not to replace anyone in the band) beyond a collection of random ideas thrown out by various individuals w/out any real foundation or negotiations in place other than our prior involvements (which wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to put together). And 4 the record Doc McGhee is no longer involved w/either myself or GN’R.”
So that’s the end of that reunion, at least for now. Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash recently talked about the possibility of the original GNR lineup rocking together once again. But Axl has swiftly batted down that story with his recent remarks.
It’s unlikely Axl will ever be any less difficult about formulating that elusive, long-awaited reunion. But until then, GNR fans will just have to settle for today’s makeshift group and watch old videos of the classic lineup blasting Appetite-era anthems to sold-out stadiums.
Where to next?
