Current Guns N' Roses Member Hopes For Classic Era Reunion

Current Guns N' Roses bass player Tommy Stinson says in a new interview that he hopes the classic era lineup of the band will reunite. His comments come after it was revealed that frontman Axl Rose and former guitarist Slash have recently reconciled after being estranged for many years.

Stinson, who was a part of his own reunion with The Replacements, had the following to say to The Current about a classic Guns N' Roses reunion, "I'll be perfectly honest with you, man. I hope they do because when you go back to where you started from and just check that out, and feel that for a moment after you've gone on and done all these other things, you know, there's a reward that comes with that, and I had that with the [Replacements]. It's a good thing; it's a good thing to do once in a while. And I hope it works out for 'em, if it actually happens."

He was also asked about the status of the current lineup, which hasn't performed together since April of last year. Stinson was reluctant to discuss the issue but blamed the inactivity on his other commitments and not any politics within Guns N Roses.

"I don't really want to talk about on air cause what happened with it, it has nothing to do with Axl [Rose] or any of that stuff. It had more to do with my personal situation. Basically, I played my last gig in Las Vegas with them and had to come home and tend to that the best I could while the Replacements were kinda being offered up.

"My guess is that, at some point, someone's gonna call me and tell me what's up with that. 'Cause we all left, we've left on friendly terms. It wasn't like a bad thing. But another guitar player, DJ Ashba, I think he officially quit to do something but, you know, I had to walk away and take care of my stuff."
