Slash: Guns n Roses reunion a good idea
Former GUNS N’ ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash was recently asked by Brazilian MTV about a possible reunion of the original GN’R lineup.
“It’s been 12 years now… 11 years… and it just doesn’t seem like one of those things that any of us are really thinking about doing,” Slash said. “And I’m not saying never. I would say it would be a good idea to get, just for a couple of shows, to get the original STP [STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, former band of VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland] and the original GUNS N’ ROSES just to do a couple of shows for the fun of it.”
