Guns and Replacements

Peter S. Scholtes

Welcome to the jungle

Ex-Replacements bassist and current Perfect front man Tommy Stinson has joined Axl Rose's all new Guns N' Roses lineup, along with former Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck and Vandals drummer Josh Freese. A source close to the band says Rose considered enlisting techno maestro Moby, of all people, to produce the band's imminent recording sessions. But Mr. Brownstone apparently thought twice, choosing instead to take a crash course in the necessary computer technology that will ground G'N'R's new techno sound.

As your imagination reels, let's review what we've learned: The leader of what might have been the best glam-metal band ever (KISS fans, hold those letters) has recruited the bass player of perhaps the greatest punk band ever (easy, Lifter Puller fans) to do an album of, well (and I do apologize Metallica fans), metalica. Does Rose's madness have a method? 'He's actually smarter than a lot of people give him credit for,' says my source. 'I think he purposely sat out the grunge years.' The new Guns have yet to perform in public, perhaps because Rose has reportedly gained enough weight to earn the nickname 'Triple Axl.'
