GNR to reunite without Axl!

Yes its true. Believe it. According to Steven Adler (Ex-GNR drummer) the holy reunion will take place on 28th July at the Key Club, Los Angeles. According to the clubs's website the band schedules to play that night is Adler's Appetite and L.A. Guns along with a few "very special guests". Adler also confirms the presence of Slash, Duff McKagan and (hold your breath) Izzy Stradlin. Its highly unlikely they will be joined by Axl 'nut' Rose, as hes got his own band going now. However Adler talks about a full fledged GNR reunion saying : "Axl and I spoke to each other in Las Vegas recently, and I know there's a chance. It's just too big. Whatever the Stones make when they play, we'd triple it. It'd be ridiculous not to do it. He can't be that goofy."

A Guns n' Roses reunion indeed has high possibilities. Axl, with his once-in-a-lifetime Chinese Democracy is going to lose a fortune. No doubt Chinese Democracy will debut at No.1 in more than 10+ countries and will be hugely successful, but by no means it'll recover the $ 15 spent on it. Which inevitably calls for Axl to reunite to make the moolah all over again. As for Steven Adler, the guys just got a ridiculous band called 'Adler's Appetite' whcih more like a group to appear on Fear Factor. So hes just plain desperate. Izzy Stradlin in the past has performed with the New GNR lineup (a.k.a Axl and his pretty pink roses). So as for Izzy hes' game. As for SLASH, hes always been coordial and sent x'mas greetings to Axl to avail no response. And according to SLASH's recent interview to Ultimate Guitar he has buried the hatchet with Axl and has moved on. However a recent hurdle has been created by the success of Libertad, which makes the reunion that much more difficult.

For what its worth, I can kill to be in the City of angels to watch the gods play!
