Guns N' Roses Reunion Will Be Healing Says Stinson

(Classic Rock) Former Guns N' Roses bassist Tommy Stinson says the band's 2016 reunion will be "a healing thing" for the players involved. Stinson - in the lineup since 1998 - will see his role in the band reclaimed by Duff McKagan, who filled his spot on a series of South American dates last year while he juggled touring commitments with The Replacements, which became an ongoing scheduling challenge for him.

Stinson tells The Current: "I think everyone kind of knows where I stand with it all. I left it in a good way. I mean, roughly, I actually had to just start turning down tours because I was unable to tour. I got into a position, personally, where my personal life was going to prevent me from doing, I don't know - it must have been about five tours that they called me to do, and I just said I can't do 'em.

"And at that point, I think Axl got to the position where he was, like, 'Okay, so what am I going to do now? 'Cause I don't have a band. Blah blah blah.'" He adds: "So I think it worked out. And I think they'll have fun. It will be a healing thing for 'em, if it works out good. It will be good for them." Read more here.
