Original Guns N’ Roses Member Rumored To Join Reunion

The latest Guns N’ Roses rumors on MyGNRForum from Eddie Money indicate that Izzy Stradlin will ‘for sure’ be involved in GNR’s reunion in a limited capacity, performing with the band in Las Vegas.

“Izzy is in for sure. My source didn’t say anything about Matt Sorum and said that there is still discussion about having Adler be a part of the tour on some level. They didn’t say that Sorum would not be involved though.”

“[Izzy will] not [play] the entire show as far as I know.”

“[Steven] is not rehearsing with them but it doesn’t mean that he’s excluded completely. Honestly, I haven’t heard one way or the other.”

“There’s an oversight management team and then each principal member (Axl, Slash, and Duff) have a representative on a committee, and there is also a forth person to look out for the interests of the unrepresented participants (Richard, Dizzy, and Izzy, Tracy, Roberta, Teddy Zig Zag, etc).”

Guns N’ Roses’ classic “Welcome to the Jungle” was featured in a new Taco Bell commercial on Sunday. Taco Bell wrote, “Bigger than drones? Man buns? Those weird hoverboard things you see people riding all over the place? With delicious, melty pepper jack cheese inside the shell, the Quesalupa might just be bigger than everything.”

This ties in to Axl Rose’s tweeted on January 1st proclaiming that he loved Taco Bell. “The only thing I know “confirmed” is my LOVE of Taco Bell! Mmmmm…. Taco Bell!! Happy New Years!!”

Guns N’ Roses continue to stir and increases the frenzy of their fans to announce a date more in North America with the addition of a concert at the forum sol de Mexico city scheduled for 19 April 2016.

Guns N’ Roses members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan have released a statement mocking people like Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, and Andrew Dice Clay for taking credit for their reunion.

“Guns N’ Roses would like to respectfully thank the many people taking credit for our upcoming shows and everything in between. Especially those whom we haven’t spoken to in numerous years who, through the power of media, have somehow served a pivotal, even if non-existent role. We, and the fans thank you! #GnFnR.”

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler discussed Guns N’ Roses’ reunion on The Howard Stern show recently. When asked if he was responsible for the reunion, he had the following quotes:

“I’m sure I’m not solely.”

“I ran into Axl [Rose] at a club a year or two ago and told him he’s crazy, we all miss them, and he needs to get the band back together.”

“If they didn’t get back together soon they would have missed their window and no one would have cared in 3 or 4 years.”

“People love Axl with the original band, they love him on his own but they want to see him with the original guys.”

“I said the same things to Axl that everyone said to me when me and Joe Perry were fighting.”

“Guns N Roses music was part of the fabric of all people.”

When asked about the animosity in GNR:

“I get the whole thing, I can’t talk about it. But they’re talking and they got an offer. I hope Axl can see the greater picture and not be mad at Duff and Slash.”

Howard asked if the beef was similar to the riff that tore apart Aerosmith, asked jokingly if one of the band members slept with another ones wife or something?

Steven said it was deeper then that. But the world needs to hear their music and they’re talking to each other again.

    Does this make *ANY* sense whatsoever?

    “Izzy is in for sure, but won’t play the whole show as far as I know. My source didn’t say anything about Sorum, but didn’t say Sorum wouldn’t be involved. Adler might be involved but isn’t rehearsing with them which doesn’t mean he’s excluded completely. Honestly, I haven’t heard one way or the other…”

    Ummm…what? The fuck?

    These guys are a bunch of prima donna pussies if they need a fucking committee to oversee their lame hybrid reunion tour, with each of the three main guys getting his own rep. Looks like the Gn’R circus is once again alive and well.

      I can’t figure out anything coherent here, either.

      The important thing would be that Izzy is involved in the song writing process because Slash or Duff are not the world’s best songwriters…

      • Jimmy Intense

        They haven’t confirmed new music is in the works. Everything you’ve read is rumor.

        • Go Hiomlán Mandelbrotmenge Imi

          Thats why I said “would be”.

  • Corndog

    Is anyone else bored already?

    • Rizz

      Yes. This “tour” will not succeed unless the market is 45 year old aging hair metal chicks/dudes looking for one last hurrah.

      • Dunlap Gabriel

        I’m 36 and have been waiting since I was 12 for this. There are a lot of people who weren’t alive to see them at the peak of their intensity who are excited. So, I think you’re being a little snarky and are perhaps ignorant to the impact this band has had over time. They are most definitely not, “hair metal”, as you so degradingly refer to their music. They paved the way for grunge/alternative to take over the mainstream in the 90’s.

        • Rizz

          Knock yourself out dude. Its not the band without Izzy and Adler.

          • Dunlap Gabriel

            Yeah, I’ve heard that ridiculous talk for years now, except it was regarding Slash. Now, he and Duff are back, and a certain group of pessimists are saying that it’s not the band without Steven and Izzy. I’m sure if Izzy wants to be there, he will be. No one is preventing him from rejoining the band. He quit years ago. Maybe your right, though. Everytime a person leaves a band, the other musicians should break up the band entirely, or come up with a different name, just to avoid this type of inauthenticity. Or, maybe do away with band names all together. Instead, list the names of each individual musician/performer on tickets and promotions.

    “There’s an oversight management team and then each principal member (Axl, Slash, and Duff) have a representative on a committee, and there is also a forth person to look out for the interests of the unrepresented participants (Richard, Dizzy, and Izzy, Tracy, Roberta, Teddy Zig Zag, etc).”

    …what fucking band needs this amount of interference!? I mean, it was clear from the beginning that this wouldn’t be anything more than a blatant cash grab but this is just ridiculous. I feel sorry for anyone that falls into their circus of greed.

    • Felonious Punk

      LoL though I refuse to feel sorry for any fan dumb enough to pay $2,500 for a G n’R VIP package that includes zero interaction with the band.

    • dakotablue

      But Axl’s rep on the oversight committee gets 100 votes, everybody else just one, don’tcha know.

      • Jimmy Intense

        Seems like an oversight… 😉

    • Dunlap Gabriel

      Glad to hear Tracy and Roberta are coming back. Lol. I was wondering.

      Whoever wrote this is a hack, quoting a guy named Eddie Money from a forum that gets off speculating about GNR?

      And people buy into it.

    • ITURBIDE

      you know, the band with a lot of money involved and a lot of people. Its the same on all the big bands like Metallica, U2, Rolling Stones or Pink Floyd. At this point, the “Band” its just a part of a company. Sorry, this is the real world.

      As for me, I have my tickets already. I don’t care if this is a circus of greed, its entertainment. I do whatever the fuck I want with my money and I don’t give a fuck which concert you go. You should do the same.

      • Jimmy Intense

        Well then…enjoy the shit show.

        If you can be entertained by a bunch of old dudes failing to recapture their glory whilst Axl chokes on notes and falls on/off stage then all the power to you!

        • ITURBIDE

          Don’t forget the mercenaries playing drums and guitars and the old fat ladies in her fifties showing her tits to Axl Rose!

          Man, you’re so intense…that should be your last n….

          Right…

  • Victor Purcell

    Basically a non-story. No new news here. Move along.

  • God

    Them Ballz on drums!

  • — J —

    I think if Adler wasn’t involved, he would be doing an interview every damn day about it.

  • Dunlap Gabriel

    Had me at Eddie Money, the new GNR insider. Hopefully, he opens up for them on the tour. That would be a great show.

  • mike ratherson

    Breaking news: Axl, Slash, and Duff will play Coachella in mid-April. We probably won’t know who else will be joining them until they hit the stage. Eddie Money, Eddie Trump, and all other people named Eddie have no idea who will be joining them. No one knows but Axl, Slash, Duff, and whoever is rehearsing with them. Have a little patience. We’ll find out in 2 months.
