Scott Weiland Has 'Heard' Guns N' Roses Are Reuniting
Rumors of a reunion of the original lineup, or the Use Your Illusions era, of Guns N' Roses have surfaced after Slash revealed that he and Axl Rose had settled their longtime feud.
Weiland was interviewed by Alternative Nation and was asked about his own feud with Rose and he responded, "There was a little going back and forth between the two of us at the time, but I think that Guns N' Roses are getting back together."
The site says they then pressed him on that response and he said, "I just heard that." Tommy Black, the bass player for Weiland's band The Wildabouts, added "we've heard rumors."
One reunion involved those same Guns N' Roses members that didn't come to fruition was with Weiland and Velvet Revolver. They did perform together again at a charity event in 2012 and discussed regrouping but it didn't happen.
Weiland shared his view of what prevented the reunion, "We did a show together, and there was talk about us getting back together, but Perla, Slash's ex-wife, kind of put the kibosh on everything … As far as getting back together, I thought at the time we would get back together and do a tour."
Alternative Nation will be publishing the full interview with Wieland later today (Nov. 9), in the meantime read the report featuring the GNR and Velvet Revolver reunions here.
