DUFF McKAGAN NOT PREDICTING GnR REUNION [VIDEO]
Should Guns and Roses make it all the way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2012 class, it’s original bassist doubts that he and his fellow original members will be joining Axl on stage.
Duff McKagan, who last Sunday (October 30th) made an appearance in the rotunda at the Mall of America to promote his best selling memoir “It’s So Easy (And Other Lies)”, said in a recent interview with The Nervous Breakdown that he personally doesn’t see a reunion happening on the big night.
“I can’t. I can’t picture it. Your guess is as good as mine. There is no picture. It’s bound to happen, but I’d love to call the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, whoever they are, and say, ‘Hey guys, why don’t you put this off for another ten years? Thank you! Thanks for nominating us — it’s great, but how about you put it off for ten years?'”
So ten years isn’t enough time for the old gang to iron out all their differences?
“You know, that’s all I need to say about this. I care about our fans and that’s it.”
He went on to say that getting into the Hall was never “on my radar”.
McKagan left Guns N’ Roses in the mid-Nineties, but made headlines last year when he performed four songs with the current lineup of the band at a gig in London.
The current line up of Guns N’ Roses – featuring Axl as the only original member – is set to play The Target Center in Minneapolis November 13th.
