GN'R REUNION RUMORS

GunsNRoses.com

"There are no plans of a reunion, nor have there been any discussions of a reunion, with former Guns N' Roses band members. In the future, we hope that if media have any questions concerning GN'R, they'd at least check their facts before running inaccurate stories for their own benefit."

- Irving Azoff

Guns N' Roses: No Reunion Planned

Contrary to published reports, Axl Rose has no plans to reunite the most successful Guns N' Roses lineup. Guns' co-manager Irving Azoff told Sal Cirrincione of Premiere Radio Networks, "There are no plans of a reunion, nor have there been any discussions of a reunion, with former Guns N' Roses band members. In the future, we hope that if media have any questions concerning GN'R, they'd at least check their facts before running inaccurate stories for their own benefit."

The new Guns N' Roses album, "Chinese Democracy", sold a total of around 57,000 copies in its second week of release, causing it to fall out of the Billboard album chart's Top 10. The album experienced a 78-percent drop from its first week sales of 261,000 — an unheard-of decline even in these dying days of the CD industry.

According to The Pulse of Radio, analysts have already begun going over what happened to "Chinese Democracy", which arrived on November 23 as a Best Buy exclusive after a wait of more than 15 years. The most immediate comparison has been to AC/DC's new "Black Ice", which also came out through a single retailer, in this case Wal-Mart, and sold nearly 800,000 copies in its first week after an eight-year gap between albums.

But AC/DC did interviews, online initiatives and TV appearances to promote their album, also launching a major North American tour days after its arrival. Guns N' Roses has not scheduled any live dates, and frontman Axl Rose — the band's sole remaining original member — has not done a single interview or made any appearances to help with his record's marketing or even justify using the Guns N' Roses brand for what sounds more like a Rose solo outing.

Some have also suggested that Best Buy was far less experienced at this sort of release, while Wal-Mart pioneered it with albums from the Eagles and Garth Brooks. The retailer paid $14 million for 1.6 million copies of the Guns N' Roses album, according to Hits.

Guns N' Roses 'Have No Plans To Reunite'
Manager says...


By Jason Gregory

Guns N' Roses will not stage a reunion with their former members, the band's manager has said.

Ex-guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan have both been linked to a possible return alongside Axl Rose since the release of 'Chinese Democracy' in September.

However, in a statement, manager Irving Azoff said: "There are no plans of a reunion, nor have there been any discussions of a reunion, with former Guns N' Roses band members.

“In the future, we hope that if media have any questions concerning GN'R, they'd at least check their facts before running inaccurate stories for their own benefit."

Azoff made no comment on whether Rose planned to return to the road in 2009.

Slash embraced the recent release of 'Chinese Democracy' in a recent interview but said he didn't know about any reunion plans.

Sales of of the album, which arrived after a fourteen year wait, have continued to fall below expectations in the US, where it failed to claim the number one position.

Label bosses at Geffen Records are understood to have shouldered much of the blame on frontman Axl Rose, who has been out of contact for two months.
