Comedian Andrew Dice Clay is claiming that he helped orchestrate the reunion of Guns N’ Roses members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan. The Interro Bang reports:
“Back in February 2015, Slash surprised the music world by tweeting @AxlRose wishing him a Happy Birthday. According to Dice, he helped make that tweet happen when he told GnR road manager Tom Mayhew, who he’s been friends with for nearly three decades that they need to get Slash to tweet something good about Axl. Soon after, the infamous birthday tweet.
Dice says he’d run into Slash when he was performing in Australia and told Slash that Guns had millions of fans who would love to seem them get back together. He also opened for Axl at the Hard Rock in Vegas, and told Axl that it was time for the band to get back together. A few months later, Duff McKagen came to see Dice’s son’s band, previously known as L.A. Rocks, now Still Rebel. Dice says Duff told him Still Rebel was ready to break out. Dice, in return, mentioned to Duff that he thought Guns should get back together.”
