Guns N’ Roses deny Axl Rose is planning to retire

A source within the band's camp dismisses claim as 'bullshit'

Guns N’ Roses have denied Axl Rose is retiring from music.

US entertainment site Radar Online reported the band were planning to call it a day after the final show in their current Las Vegas residency on June 7. The source for Radar Online is quoted as saying Rose was considering retirement and that the rest of the band had been told their diaries were clear after that last show.

However, another source, this time from within the band’s camp, told Loudwire that the retirement talk is “bullshit” and that the band having clear calendars is nothing new when the band is on a break, giving them time to pursue other projects.

Bassist Tommy Stinson played some reunion dates with The Replacements earlier this year, and will potentially rejoin them later this year. Richard Fortus and Dizzy Reed will also have the opportunity to work with The Dead Daisies and guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal often works on solo material.

The band have recently talked about recording a new album. After the Golden God Awards show in April this year, rhythm guitarist Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba told reporters G N’R were planning for a new album to be out within a year.
