Steven Tyler Has Been Working On Guns N’ Roses Reunion ‘For Years’

Aerosmith frontman discussed Guns N’ Roses’ reunion yesterday Getty Images.

Guns N’ Roses are reuniting at Coachella this year, how exciting is that for you?

Steven Tyler: I’ve been working on it for years.  Call Slash up, ask him.

So this has your name written all over it?

Steven Tyler: Nah I wouldn’t say…the world needs more rock ‘n’ roll and enough of people arguing especially when they’re as talented…everybody loves their songs, that’s what rock ‘n’ roll is about, they love it.

How big is this reunion going to be?

Steven Tyler: Huge. There are no words. Just don’t forget this man…it don’t happen til it happens.

Why do you think it is that they are doing it now, after almost three decades?

Steven Tyler: Obviously there was a row and they finally made up.  What do you think.

    First it’s Eddie, then Andrew Dice Clay and now Steven Tyler, everyone want to take credit for the GNR reunion. There’s only 2 men responsible for that and it’s Axl and Slash. Can’t remember the former 3 guys being as vocal in the 90s or 00s for a GNR reunion.

    • Felonious Punk

      Wasn’t Scott Weiland the first one to officially say it was happening though?

      • Corndog

        He’s still saying it.

        • Toad Wallop

          OK? If corpses talked.

          • Corndog

            They don’t?

          • Toad Wallop

            Well, I have dreams about dead people, mostly ones I knew personally, and they talk. If only…. dreams are depressing. Lol

          • Corndog

            I tend to have really weird dreams. Always waking up in cold sweats.

      • Raj

        Yeah that’s true, lol. Okay then it’s 1.SW 2.ET 3. ADC and 4. ST I’m sure we will easily have a top 10 once a few more people come out of the woodwork.

        • Felonious Punk

          I’m surprised there hasn’t been a flood of people on here claiming Scott was whacked for leaking the Guns reunion news. I’m sure its not far off..

          • Toad Wallop

            Kurt was murdered, and I saw Jim Morrison in a bar on Sunset last week. Nobody ever set foot on the moon, and we all know that thing in the open casket that they called “Elvis” was just a wax replica.

          • Corndog

            You left out the earth being flat!!

            I’ve recently discovered via the medium of Youtube that there are people out there that actually believe the earth is flat! They have all kinds of theories to shoot down accepted, established scientific facts. It’s actually quite interesting (in a fly on the wall kind of way) until you realise that they are just a bunch of whackjobs that can’t accept that the Earth is not the centre of the universe.

          • Felonious Punk

            Have to admit that ‘Toad Wallop’ is a pretty terrific Disqus name

          • Corndog

            AND he was wearing a Nirvana shirt…..

          • Felonious Punk

            ….which automatically qualifies Courtney as an accessory to his murder, no doubt.

          • Corndog

            Of course:)

      • Toad Wallop

        No, it was Fred Biscuit, I believe. Weiland did claim to know it was happening pretty early on though. I know he and Axl had beef at one point, and Slash and Duff, etc.., fired him for drug abuse. Though, those guys probably made up, since they did speak at his funeral. Everyone is trying to get attention from this.

        • Corndog

          What kind of beef? Wellington? Silverside? Rib eye? T-bone?

          • Toad Wallop

            Just regular old ground beef, with a side of prima donna spite, I believe.

        • Felonious Punk

          Nah, I’m pretty sure it was Scott before Biscuit.

          But even if it *was* the Biscuit guy who broke the news first, let’s just default it to Scott on account of Fred Biscuit blowing major ass in general.

          • Toad Wallop

            Christ, does he suck. I’ll never look at a red backwards baseball cap the same again. Not that it was ever cool to begin with. One of the worst to come out of late 90’s mainstream, and that’s saying something. How that decade fell to shit.

  • Jimmy Intense

    Gee real breaking “news”…

    What is the point of these articles other than driving up ad revenue?

  • Billy

    Since everybody and their dog are claiming responsibility than i’m throwing my name in the hat. Even though i have never met those guys, it was I who got them back together. At least my ridiculous fabrication has more clout than that misogynistic douchebag Dice Clay lmao

    I do hope someone does ask Axl or Slash about Tyler’s etc claim and then outs them for talking out of their ass when they laugh off the question. Here is how the interview transcript would read:
    Reporter: So, a few little birds told me they were responsible for getting you guys back together.
    Axl & Slash: oh yeah, who said that.
    Reporter: Steven Tyler and Andrew Dice Clay
    Axl & Slash: hahhahahaahaaahaha

  • nomad

    I’m guessing Slash’s soon-to-be ex-wife had a lot to do with their reunion.

    • Felonious Punk

      You didn’t think Slash agreed to this because he *wanted* to play with Axl again, now did you?

  • dakotablue

    “Obviously there was a row and they finally made up.”
    Yeah, Tyler should know–just ask Joe.
