Slash and Axl Rose back together in Guns N’ Roses

Slash - Tokyo Feb 2015

Earlier today Slash and Axl Rose performed together for the first time since 1993 when the reformed Guns N’ Roses did a club gig at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California.

From Guns’ classic 80s line-up Axl Rose and Slash were joined by bassist Duff McKagan. The rest of the new line-up of GNR consists of keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer, all long-time members of the band but not original members. They also had a new member in keyboardist Melissa Reese.

Tour dates have been announced for the US, Canada and Mexico. No word yet if the rest of the world will get to experience the GNR reunion. /
