A U.K. man who won $232,000,000 (or £148 million) thanks to the lottery last week is attempting to use his winnings to get the original lineup of Guns N’ Roses to reunite.

Adrian Bayford, 41, runs a music shop in Haverhill, Suffolk. He informed The Sun (quotes courtesy of that he would happily spend some of his luckily earned funds on getting the original members of GN’R –Axl Rose, Slash, Duff, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler- back on stage together for a performance.

Since GN’R declined an original member reunion at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction this past April, we doubt that a huge chunk of change will change their minds, but hey, kudos to Bayford for being creative with his winnings and trying to make a rock ‘n’ roll dream come true for many music fans who wish the same thing.

The current lineup of GN’R is moving full steam ahead, though. The band announced a 12-date residency at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, set for October. The shows are called “Appetite for Democracy,” referencing the album titles of discography bookends Appetite for Destruction and Chinese Democracy, so the band will play a set culling material from the span of the band’s career and recorded output.
