Guns N' Roses Reunited Lineup Unlikely To Be All Original

Guns N' Roses have been the subject of continued reunion speculation for several years now, but the whispers become a roar earlier this year when guitarist Slash publicly stated that he and frontman Axl Rose had patched up differences that kept them estranged for nearly two decades.

So what is the future of what used to be rock n roll’s “most dangerous band”?

It is no great secret that a reunion is coming. The pitch has been with concert promoters for several months now, with confirmation coming from a couple of those agents that the band is looking to play select festivals in 2016 before moving onto a larger stadium tour in 2017 – to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic Appetite For Destruction album.

But what hasn’t been discussed however, is who exactly will be involved in the reunion. The rumors have all touted a reunion of the “classic” or “original” lineup.

But it’s not what people might have expected.

From everything I have heard from multiple trusted sources, the new Guns N Roses lineup will consist of:

Axl
Slash
Duff

With:
Richard Fortus
Frank Ferrer
Dizzy Reed

Plans are still evolving, but it appears the band is pitching a few high-profile European rock festivals and Coachella in the USA has been mentioned too.

All of this is rumoured until confirmed, but from what I’ve heard, Steven Adler, Izzy Stradlin and Matt Sorum are not going to be involved.

Stay tuned…

Rumor: Guns N' Roses Reunion Won't Be All Original Members

Speculation reached a fever pitch last week that Guns N' Roses was close to announcing a reunion tour, but now a report has emerged indicating that the band lineup for the trek may not be exactly what fans had in mind. According to The Pulse Of Radio, the tour will feature founding members Axl Rose on vocals, Slash on lead guitar and Duff McKagan on bass — but that's all for the original roster.

Instead of also seeing original guitarist Izzy Stradlin and drummer Steven Adler — or even "Use Your Illusion"-era drummer Matt Sorum — fans may instead get current guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer joining the big three, as well as longtime keyboard player Dizzy Reed.

A report from Dish Nation claimed last week that a reunion tour was "close to being revealed," with the band allegedly headlining several major festivals in Europe and the U.S. before embarking on a worldwide tour to mark its 30th anniversary.

Rumors about a reunion have been heating up ever since the summer, when Slash revealed that he and Rose had repaired their relationship after nearly 20 years of estrangement.

Several members have recently left the current lineup of Guns N' Roses, which features Rose as the sole original member. The band has not performed live since last year, but its Twitter account has posted several cryptic messages lately, furthering talk of a reunion.

Other celebrities and musicians with direct or indirect ties to the Guns camp have also hinted that an announcement is imminent.
