Izzy in or Izzy Out?
antiMusic reports: Europeans supposedly hate us Yanks but American Guns N' Roses fans are hating Euro fans right about now with Axl and company playing all over hell and gone across the pond this summer and that jealousy may get worse. There is a chance that original GNR guitarist Izzy Stradlin may play with the band in Europe. Izzy pleased New York City fans when he jumped up on stage during the final show of GNR's four night "warm-up" stint and performed three songs with the band (the first time Axl and Izzy had played together in 13 years). Shortly after that happened, rumors started flying that Izzy might join the band on stage in Europe this summer. Izzy being the man of honor that he is and not wanting to leave fans hanging has put those rumors to rest…. But left the door open (he still has the GNR spirit). Izzy posted the following message on his official website: "I don't have any concrete plans at this moment to join them in Europe but I will let you know if it changes. Please let people know nothing is confirmed at this point for Europe. NY was pretty cool." - Click Here for the Full Story
