GUNS N’ ROSES Reunion Rumours
After nearly 20 years of not talking, Slash recently reconciled with Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose. And cue the reunion rumours.
And the first rumour takes place in Australia. A club owner has apparently received some intel. The owner, James Young, told Triple M Radio: “I heard the most amazing rumor this week, from a very well-informed heavy hitter in the Australian music industry, giving me the name of the headline act for Soundwave next year… So what mega band could it be? Well I have ‘fantasized’ on Wednesday night that it will be: Steven Adler, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, Slash and Axl Rose, the reformation of the original 1987 ‘Appetite For Destruction’ Guns N’ Roses lineup.”
Soundwave is an annual touring rock and pop festival that travels around Australia and New Zealand during those countries’ summer months in January and February.
Slash told The Pulse Of Radio a while back why he would be open to a reunion. “It would be worth doing for the fans,” he said. “The fans would be the greatest thing about it because I think they really deserve it — I think they got the short end of the stick on the whole thing. But the hurdles that one would have to jump in order to make that happen are insurmountable, as far as I can say right at this moment. But I can’t speak, you know, for the future to the point of going, ‘It’ll never happen,’ ’cause I think I would sound sort of ignorant.”
Guns N’ Roses recently parted ways with guitarists DJ Ashba and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal… opening the door for reunion questions and hopes.
