For months now rumors have swirled of a reunion between the founding members of Guns N’ Roses. For its part, the band has only fueled speculation. Not only has no one outright denied the rumors, recently the band’s official website began selling merchandise featuring images of Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stadlin, and Steven Adler, as well as of their classic logo.
Now, as Blabbermouth points out, the band’s website has been stripped bare to display only the Appetite For Destruction-era logo. Aside from the obvious, it’s a noticeable development as Axl and Slash have long squabbled over ownership of the band’s logo and other copyrights.
Update – Saturday, December 26th at 4:30 p.m. CT: As Ultimate Classic Rock reports, clips of Guns N’ Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle” are being played prior to some screenings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The clips does not include any additional details, so it’s unclear what’s being promoted.
According to Consequence of Sound sources, GNR is fielding offers for a potential reunion tour, with Coachella among the band’s biggest suitors. With Coachella’s 2016 lineup announcement arriving sometime in January, it appears GNR’s own announcement could be just days away. Stay tuned.
Guns N’ Roses’ classic lineup last performed together in Argentina in July 1993. Watch a clip from that concert below.
