Ex-Guns N’ Roses Member: ‘I Wasn’t Asked To Join Reunion’


Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum has revealed on Twitter that he ‘wasn’t asked’ to take part in GNR’s reunion tour. He later deleted the tweet. He was later asked if he was watching Guns N’ Roses’ Las Vegas concerts, he said he preferred to watch Downton Abbey. “Watching final season of Downton Abbey.” Sorum also wished his former GNR bandmate Izzy Stradlin happy birthday on Saturday. Stradlin is also not involved in Guns N’ Roses’ reunion.


Writer Mick Wall has revealed that Steven Adler injured his back while rehearsing with Guns N’ Roses, and that he was set to perform with the band at the Troubadour last Friday. He also hinted at surprises on tour, which may include Adler pending his health.

“I know some who were there. And they tell me it’s all true, it’s all for real. That Steven actually was going to be there too but he hurt his back during rehearsals. They also told me some other things which I feel a douche for keeping to myself, but I’ve never been into spoilers. Why ruin the fun? This is the year when the fun is finally back to taunt us.”

He also wrote about the Troubadour concert.

“Friday night at the Troub, man. This was no April Fool’s joke. This was something unexpected. Up there, out there, so many people in LA from the old days no longer invited to the party, too. You’ve got to feel for them. Their past right there on their doorstep and no one from the band even acknowledging them anymore. Don’t blame Axl. That game is over. Whatever happens from now on, this is all about Slash and Duff too. And good for them, I say. What are Guns N’ Fuckin’ Roses if not the band that always did it their way, fuck you very much?”
