Following the news, The Most Dangerous Band In the World: The Story of Guns N’ Roses will premiere on BBC Four at 10pm on February 5.

Directed by Jon Brewer, the original film will show “the explosive rise of one of the most notorious bands of our times”, featuring “exclusive, never-before-heard interviews, and early footage”. Slash is among those interviewed for the documentary.

Guns N’ Roses have announced that they will headline Coachella 2016, as well as confirming two warm-up gigs in Las Vegas.

It will be the first time since 1993 that this line-up of the band have performed together. Who will play drums with the band remains unknown with both Matt Sorum and Izzy Stradlin expressing interest in the reunion and saying they were keen to share duties.

Slash buried the hatchet with frontman Axl Rose in 2015 after nearly 20 years of bad blood between the pair. He previously declined to comment on the possibility of a reunion, having always ruled it out in the past.
