McKagan to Possibly Reunite with Guns n’ Roses
Duff McKagan posted a message on his Twitter page yesterday, that seems to be hinting at a possible reunion with his former band Guns n’ Roses. The message reads: “Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil! See y'all in the next few weeks, Si? GNR.” So it would appear that McKagan will go on the road with the band during their South American tour. The tweet was also accompanied by a picture of two pieces of paper with Guns n’ Roses song names on them, seemingly a setlist that Duff is rehearsing.
It seems very likely that the reunion is in fact taking place since current Guns bassist Tommy Stinson is sitting out the tour due to a reunion with his band The Replacements, who will be headlining this year’s Coachella festival. Duff, who left GNR in 1997, briefly reunited with the band on stage in London back in 2010 after having run in to Axl Rose at his hotel where the two happened to be staying in the rooms next to one another.
