Talks are supposedly underway...
Talks about Guns N’ Roses playing next year’s Super Bowl half time show with their original line-up are apparently underway.
Singer Axl Rose refuted speculation this week (February 8) that he would agree to any kind of reunion with his former bandmates. But despite this US sports blogger Kent Sterling claims that a source has given information that talks are ongoing.
According to the report, “Preliminary talks have already taken place to reconvene the most popular line up of Guns N’ Roses” for the event next year.
However, the blogger acknowledged that discussions are in “very early stages” and that it “may turn into nothing”.
If the reunion were to happen it would be the first time the line-up that recorded the band’s acclaimed 1987 debut album ‘Appetite For Destruction’ had played live together since 1990, the year drummer Steven Adler was sacked.
Guitarist Slash recently said he’d be up for talking to Rose about a reunion – but only if the singer apologised to him. The pair are not thought to have spoken since Slash left the band in 1996.
The Black Eyed Peas played the Super Bowl half-time show this year.
