News

While Guns n' Roses were warming up to upcoming support dates with David Lee Roth with a small headlining tour on the West Coast, disagreements arose between vocalist Axl Rose and the rest of the band (namely guitarists Slash/Izzy Stradlin', bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Steven Adler), who complained that Axl refused to take the stage at the Phoenix, Arizona gig. The show then had to be canceled and Axl was kicked out by his colleagues.

Fortunately, 48 hours later, the remaining four reversed their decision. When asked about the current mood in the band, Slash replied: "The great pressure we are under at the moment is responsible for the incident. It's over and the five of us are now a stronger unit than before." This had an aftermath, though. Two, actually, because the Gunners have not only lost DLR support (Faster Pussycat is playing instead), it is also doubtful whether AC/DC will keep their offer to have Guns N'Roses as the opening act for their May 3rd beginning US tour.

By the way, Izzy recently worked on new material with Doc Neeson, the singer of the Australian band The Angels (known for years as Angel City). Doc also wrote new songs with Great White guitarist Mark Kendall.

Izzy working with Doc Neeson back in 1988 was news to me. I googled a bit and found this article that says nothing really came out of this collaboration (only "some half-completed songs and a list of ideas"): http://theorstrahyun.blogspot.com/2014/06/the-legend-is-gone-rip-doc-neeson.html
