I think Izzy probably doesn't want to be apart of this (sure he has his own reasons and I respect that) and I think Matt and Steven are out of the question because Axl and Matt don't get along and Steven's drug problems will always hinder him playing with GNR and I don't think Axl wants him to be apart of it in case he can't pull through.I'm just basing the lineup based on that rumour...If I had to guess what the lineup would look like I'd go with what the article says and if they reunite with that lineup that's pretty disappointing yeah everyone will like seeing Slash and Axl back on stage again but without Izzy,Matt,Steven and to a lesser extent Gilby....It's not a true reunion...It's like old guns vs new guns.
I'm still holding out hope for an all original 5 reunion Axl,Slash,Duff,Izzy and Steven or an Appetite,UYI reunion with Axl,Slash,Duff,Gilby (If no Izzy),Matt (If no Steven) and of course Dizzy...Those are two lineups I would pay money to see reunite....But to throw Duff and Slash with two members of new guns....seems just like another GNR cover band...I guess time will tell.
There was another rumor I read that Slash told Vicky Hamilton (She worked for Guns in their hay day) he told her that Guns N Roses were not reuniting! So who knows who's to believe here....I'd believe Axl's word before all these media sites spewing out rumor after rumor.
Here's the Slash rumor:http://www.alternativenation.net/slash-tells-friend-gnr-wont-reunite-for-tour-is-he-lying/
