Ex-Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan has said that the orginal line-up could reform.

The former Velvet Revolver star joined the current line-up of the band, whose only original member is frontman Axl Rose, for a one-off gig last year.

McKagan said that a tour featuring Rose, guitarists Slash and Izzy Stradlin and drummer Steven Adler hasn't been discussed, but he won't rule out the possibility of a reunion.

He told AP:

Of course there's a chance. I don't know how real that chance is. It's not something I ever write about or talk at home about or with any of those principal people about, ever.

Rose has constantly ruled out any possibility of reforming the original line-up primarily because he doesn't get on with Slash.

The singer recently revealed in a video , which you can watch below, that he would deliberately steal girls off the guitarist in the band's heyday and he often got so drunk he would "piss his pants".

Former members of the band recently performed at a benefit concert in New York.
