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!!”
The only thing I know "confirmed" is my LOVE of Taco Bell! Mmmmm…. Taco Bell!! Happy New Years!!

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.
