guns n roses reunion

Former Guns N’ Roses publicist Arlett Vereecke is reporting that Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Izzy Stradlin have been writing new music, but without Axl Rose.

She exclusively tells Team Rock: “I know they’re doing some recording. They’re definitely doing something there in the studio. Axl hasn’t been there, but Slash is definitely in there and it’s not for anyone else.”

Ex-Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven also suggests that Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin have been working together.

He says: “Duff and Izzy were in the studio before Christmas doing stuff. At a casual glance I think they’ve got at least a couple of tracks down.”

Recent Guns N’ Roses rumors on MyGNRForum from Eddie Money indicate that the following GNR 2016 tour dates are in the works.

Dallas – May
San Francisco – May
Foxborough, MA (Gillette Stadium) – Early August
Chicago, IL (Solider Field – 2 shows on July 4th weekend
Toronto – July 16th with option for second show on July 17th

He also recently posted:

“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 are rumored to be touring South America after their North American tour is expected to wrap up in September, with the following cities expected in October to December.

Colombia (1 show)
Brasil (6 shows)
Argentina (2 shows)
Chile (1 show)

Guns N’ Roses’ classic “Welcome to the Jungle” was featured in a new Taco Bell commercial last night. 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.

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan commented on Guns N’ Roses reunion on the Mancow show earlier this week. Corgan said he was excited, “Yeah, I wish it had come sooner. Great band.” Corgan also has announced a Siamese Dream medley will be played on the new Smashing Pumpkins, and that he is making a documentary about America where he will go to fans houses:

In Frank Capra’s indomitable film ‘Mr. Smith Goes To Washington’, a wide-eyed doe of a man leaves his home to add one heartfelt voice to the conversation, and conversion, of humankind through politics. Facing as he goes along the raw gears of a system built not for the common good, but power, and learns as he loses the hardest lesson of all; that it is God’s law we fight for, and not ourselves, which in turn becomes the truest enrichment of all: possession of the Truth.

But what is indeed ‘true’? Ask a neighbor, and he or she will oftentimes give you answers that are wholly unlike your own, drawn from sources closer to copied digital messages and myths than the wellspring of history. As if this epoch alone is wholly made anew, and our ancestors were infinitely more stupid than we. Yet we in the West endeavor by a standard of living they could only dream of, and would laugh (I presume) at our wastefulness and common cruelty; for what we tear down we rip with distant hands, and behind the mask of a helix ID.

Mark of the Beast, indeed.

So feel free to align where I place myself in that story; that is, if you can accept that I was once innocent. But innocence in these sinews reigns no more, and with it’s abandonment went those star-zapping powers that sang so readily about my descents into the glass darkly. And the trinkets traded freely for faith.

Indeed, words are usually powerless without heart. And by that standard I stand accused. For often I’ve said far too much, and too often, without some clear intent by which to measure myself other than a wish to be proven right by time. So if there is a judge listening, it is here I wish to resign my long-beleaguered suit against so many. The grounds upon which it labored, meritless.

So what does that leave untouched? A simple impression found, and the music comes of it.

For newer sights I look towards ruinous America, and her open road. Or something approximating the mightiest byway of the 1800’s, the grand Mississippi, and that closest urbane chimera, Route 66. Add one ruddy military vet and a stack of maps, and we’ll hit out on those same veins and tributaries, heading from Chicago first towards more temperate climes. Hopeful that I might write a new album by using the milk of Delta mud, amongst other things.

Too obscure thus far? How’s this to be straight…?

My mate Justin and I are set to head out and chart the beginnings of a new documentary I’m aching to make about America. And as we meet strangers and friends in living rooms and backyards and porches, and near campfires and rusting trolleys, we’ll need your help of where to go and what we must see. If that intrigues you, and you or yours have family along our route, we’d like you to contact us with good heart. For we’ll need help and support to make this work as I imagine it in my mind. To sketch at least the beginnings of a project that may be so vast it’ll take much more than a 3 week roustabout to understand.

For example, my grandfather was at one juncture of his life a coal miner. So though it may seem I’d be more interested in where the cool kids hang about, we’ll be much more taken with documenting the stories of an elderly class that can share impressions of the country as it once was; good, bad, or indifferent. And in order to do so with integrity, I’ll need to be invited into old-fashioned parlors and the like to retain some sense memory of what’s come and gone. In exchange, I’ll bring along a guitar to play, in what we’ll call an unofficial tour before the IN PLAINSONG shows; all of which go on sale this Friday, February 5th.

As of now, our start date is immediate, where we’ll head southward along the river Illinois to the Mississippi, and then west, posting an intended route each morning; but flexible to where the wind take us. To make what I’ll deign as a living postcard before all is so faded from view that it is all but unrecognizable through pictures. For what stands left of the temples of Rome but what the Caesars forgot to destroy?

So find us if you will, and guide us…(our contact information can be found below, at the bottom of this post).

Speaking of the IN PLAINSONG tour, work has begun on constructing a long and varied set, which this round will feature in its midst a suite of Siamese Dream songs; much like the eight-or-so from Adore we did last year. The neat thing about the constructed suites being you can hear all the pieces together, strung out and fairly close to the form in which they were written. And judging by the most recent interest in this album, I’ll presume this will be a highlight each night.

If not, we look to touch on every other period of my songwriting for you (if possible with only so much time), including tunes from Zwan and The Future Embrace, and maybe even or two I’ve helped others write. And certainly with Jimmy Chamberlin there, plus Jeff Schroeder, Sierra Swan, and Katie Cole (multi-instrumentalists all), our choices for presentation and dynamics are wide open.

We hope to see you there!

William

The new Guns N’ Roses reunion is far from “Paradise City” for Def Leppard. The titans of 80’s hair metal as The Telegraph reports that the group, at least guitarist Phil Collen is far from impressed over the news that Guns N’ Roses will be touring with their classic lineup for the first time in just under 25 years.

“We obviously think it’s really f****** lame. I love Guns N’ Roses, I think they’re really cool, I’d love to see Slash and Axl and Duff play together, that’s great. But I think it’s f****** lame considering we’ve been hardcore,” he snarls. “Our integrity’s still intact, we’ve never split up. We’ve gone through if someone had a little sniffle or something, we soldier on.”

Collen continued:

“Someone dies, someone loses an arm, someone gets cancer, we soldier on. [With Guns N’ Roses] if someone has a little barney backstage, they can’t deal with each other. I know it’s difficult, but I do think it’s pretty lame when you compare anyone else to us.”

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

According to Tom Zutaut, who signed Guns N’ Roses, the feud between Axl Rose and Slash began when Slash overdosed on heroin and “died” for eight minutes.

Axl thought a different Slash took over his body following the overdose.

“Axl genuinely believes the soul of Saul Hudson left his body when Slash OD’d,” Tom said on The Most Dangerous Band in The World documentary, via The Daily Mirror.

“That [was] the greatest stumbling block to getting the band back together.”

Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum discussed the Use Your Illusion records in a Spitfire interview.

“We just stayed out on the road forever, which eventually, practically killed us all (laughs), but it had a lot of legs as they say in the music business.”

He also remembered coming up with the drum parts for “November Rain” with Axl Rose. “Me and Axl were over there on the floor, we ordered some Russian caviar, we had a bottle of vodka. We sat here, me and Axl late at night, and we listened to Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me by Elton John. He was a big Elton fan, he loves Elton. We’re eating the caviar, and drinking shots of vodka, and this big epic tom fill comes by. Axl goes, ‘I want you to do that, something like that, on November Rain.'” Axl told Sorum he wanted him to use it again in “Don’t Cry” and “Estranged” as part of the ‘trilogy.’

Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash wished Steven Adler happy birthday on his Instagram over the weekend. While this obviously isn’t a guarantee that Adler will do guest performances, Guns N’ Roses’ entire reunion has been a series of social media hints. Slash wished Axl Rose happy birthday last year, an early sign that the pair had reconciled.

Happy Birthday #StevenAdler ! iiii]; )'

DJ Ashba discussed his exit from Guns N’ Roses over the weekend on WMMR.

You played with Guns N’ Roses until recently.

DJ Ashba: I did, I did. Another one of my favorite bands growing up. Six years I think it was, something like that.

Have you heard all the talk about Coachella with Guns N’ Roses?

DJ: As a fan myself I couldn’t be more stoked for the fan base. They’ve waited a long time for this to happen. It’s so good that it’s happening. I couldn’t be happier for the fans.

It was one of those thing they were told would never happen.

DJ: Laughs, yeah yeah.

I suppose had to be pretty draining doing Sixx: A.M., Guns N’ Roses, having a family. Doing all those things at once is probably overwhelming.

DJ: It was, it was a lot of work. But I’ve got to be honest ya know. I had the time of my life, I am beyond grateful to share the stage and had so many memories and met so many great fans out there. It was just a great time in my life.

However, we did this latest Sixx: A.M. run and it really just kind of made me go, wait a second, there’s a huge difference playing somebody else’s songs and playing my own. You know what I mean, I just felt every note I hit. Wow this is where I need to be. It was that tour that made me realize I had to go back to what I’m really about. I’m really really stoked.

Former Guns N’ Roses manager Doug Goldstein discussed Donald Trump’s admiration of Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose last week on the Talking Metal podcast. Alternative Nation has transcribed the quote:

“We’re playing 5 shows at Madison Square Garden in 1992. I hear, ‘Is Doug Goldstein around?’ I look, and it’s Donald Trump. I said, ‘Yeah, this is Doug Goldstein.’ He said, ‘Can you make a pass for me?’ I said, ‘Yeah sure.’ So, being quizzical, I said, ‘Why are you here?’ He said, ‘I want to meet the Donald Trump of rock and roll.’ I said, ‘I give up.’ He said, ‘You know Doug, when you’re an underdog, everybody puts you to the top. Press, your fans, and once you get to the top, they jerk your ass back to the ground. That’s what Axl Rose is.’ So I introduced Axl to him after the show.”

The reunited Guns N’ Roses recently announced their first two reunion concerts that will take place ahead of the Coachella festival. The band will perform in Las Vegas at the new T-Mobile Arena on April 8th and 9th.

The venue announced, “History will be made in April when Guns N’ Roses – featuring the iconic lineup of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan – regroup for the first time in 23 years on the T-Mobile Arena stage. After announcing that they will headline Coachella, the band has now confirmed the very first place the world can see their historical return will be on the Las Vegas Strip, where they will perform a two-night rock spectacular at the brand new T-Mobile Arena. Guns N’ Roses will perform Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9.”

Steven Adler’s band ‘Adler’ will be performing at at Whiskey A-Go-Go on April 1st in Los Angeles. Adler is also booked for the M3 Rock Festival on April 30th. Neither date conflicts with Coachella, but Adler is clearly not committing the entire month of April to Guns N’ Roses, even if he makes rumored guest appearances.

Eddie Trunk also reported on his podcast last week that Matt Sorum was never part of Guns N’ Roses reunion discussions. “I’ve heard from day one, when I first heard rumors of this reunion a year ago, that Matt would not be involved.” He added, “Apparently there’s heat with somebody, I don’t know.”

Billboard is reporting Guns N’ Roses will likely be paid $3 million dollars per U.S. stadium concert that they are expected to play this summer. With the reported total of 25 shows, that would be $89 million total with $75 million for the stadium shows along with the rumored $14 million pay day for Coachella. Tickets will top out at $250 to $275. This total number doesn’t even factor in rumored shows in Europe and South America, which will easily push the band into grossing hundreds of millions of dollars.

The Police’s 2007/2008 tour is the reunion to beat, taking in $362 million from 151 concerts around the world.

“It might very well be a home run,” Washington, D.C.-based indie promoter Seth Hurwitz told Billboard. “It might very well be that it’s not. I prefer not to take part in these kind of all-or-nothing bets myself.”

Former GNR manager Doc McGhee (2010-2012), maintains, “If it’s done right, it should do amazing [business]. If they have their shit together and go out there to kill, I think everybody comes to see them. If not, they’ll have a tough time selling it.”

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.

Comedian Andrew Dice Clay is claiming that he helped orchestrate the reunion of Guns N’ Roses members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan. The Interro Bang reports:

“Back in February 2015, Slash surprised the music world by tweeting @AxlRose wishing him a Happy Birthday. According to Dice, he helped make that tweet happen when he told GnR road manager Tom Mayhew, who he’s been friends with for nearly three decades that they need to get Slash to tweet something good about Axl. Soon after, the infamous birthday tweet.

Dice says he’d run into Slash when he was performing in Australia and told Slash that Guns had millions of fans who would love to seem them get back together. He also opened for Axl at the Hard Rock in Vegas, and told Axl that it was time for the band to get back together. A few months later, Duff McKagen came to see Dice’s son’s band, previously known as L.A. Rocks, now Still Rebel. Dice says Duff told him Still Rebel was ready to break out. Dice, in return, mentioned to Duff that he thought Guns should get back together.”
