Guns N’ Roses Reunion – Readers Poll
Even though multiple opportunities have come and gone, there still remains a question as to whether the original lineup of Guns N’ Roses will ever put aside their differences to reunite. Recent comments by former guitarist Slash have once again brought the question to attention and we want to know if you feel the original band will ever get back together.
During a recent episode of ‘Larry King Now,’ the guitarist, who had previously stated he’d grown tired of answering the reunion question, did open up in more detail than normal to the veteran interviewer. Though not seeming optimistic, Slash did offer that a reunion could happen. He told King, “That’s the $64,000 question. It’s not something that any of us have reached out to each other and said that we wanted to do thus far. So, rather than being a pessimist and say, ‘No, it’ll never happen,’ it’s not like I’m harboring a lot of resentment. But it’s just not something that we’re all thinking about doing.” The guitarist concluded, “If it happens one day, it happens. If it doesn’t, I don’t think anybody’s, you know, losing any sleep over it.”
There have reportedly been big money offers over the years, but Axl Rose, still recording and touring with a reconfigured Guns N’ Roses lineup, has resisted the lure. Rose has made nice with former members Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan, inviting each onstage to perform at shows with the current Guns lineup. But the prime opportunity to reunite at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction came and went with Rose choosing not to attend or accept in the final week before the ceremony.
So with money and career adulation seemingly not being enough to reunite the band, do you think the original Guns N’ Roses lineup will ever reunite? Vote in our Readers Poll below:
