Axl Says It's Possible Duff McKagan Could Return To Guns N' Roses (A Top Story)

On Wednesday Axl Says It's Possible Duff McKagan Could Return To Guns N' Roses was a top story. Here is the recap: (Gibson) Duff McKagan recently joined his old band and bandmate Axl Rose for a batch of South American shows, as well as an appearance during Guns N' Roses current Las Vegas residency. McKagan filled in for current Guns bassist Tommy Stinson while he was busy playing reunion shows with his old band The Replacements.

In a recent interview with Revolver magazine (via Blabbermouth), Rose talked briefly on whether McKagan might make a permanent return to the band: "It's possible. I don't know yet. It depends on scheduling, or what shows Tommy [Stinson] wants to do with the Replacements and stuff like that. And you know, almost everybody in the band has some kind of issue going on, personally. There's people who have lost family members. Other people are dealing with separations. Sometimes court gets in the way. Real life!"

Talking about sharing the stage with his old bandmate, Rose said: "We kind of finish some of each other's memories sometimes. And the Duff that played these shows with us isn't really the Duff that I knew from what I'd call 'old Guns' or the 'Appetite For Destruction' lineup or the 'Illusion' lineup."

Guns n' Roses wrap up their Vegas residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on June 7. After that Rose says the band will shift their focus to working on a follow up to 2008's Chinese Democracy. - more on this story
