GN’R band insider MSL wrote for “GN’R Truth” saying, “We know Izzy was in rehearsals at one point and was negotiating to appear at a few of the April gigs. Equal pay was never discussed. A 5-figure fee per cameo is what was being negotiated. But there is a lot of room for negotiation on a 5-figure fee. 10k? 99k? Whatever it was, they were far apart and Izzy bailed. He doesn’t need their chump change and they don’t need to throw away a bunch of money on a guy that isn’t gonna sell many tix.”

Earlier this month, Straddling tweeted about why he didn’t join the reunion tour, saying, “the band didn’t want to split the loot equally.”

The tour features three original Guns members – singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash & bassist Duff McKagan. They were backed by drummer Frank Ferrer, guitarist Richard Fortus, and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese.

Next up for Gn’R: South America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand over the next few months.
