There’s no word yet on whether or not a full-on reunion will ever happen between the original members of Guns N’ Roses.
However, we do know that Slash and Duff McKagan jammed over the past weekend. The two were present at a fundraiser for the Wonderland Elementary School in Los Angeles and treated those in attendance to a brief concert, some of which you can see in the clip below.
The two were joined by their Velvet Revolver bandmate guitarist Dave Kushner, Apocalyptica singer Franky Perez and drummer Bill Burr. Their short set included a cover of AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” (which can be seen in the first video) as well as the GN’R tracks “It’s So Easy” (which can be seen in the bottom video) and “Paradise City.”
The reason for the reunion? McKagan was in the neighborhood with former Guns drummer Matt Sorum rehearsing for shows in support of the Alice Cooper–Johnny Depp–Joe Perry group Hollywood Vampires.
As for that full GN’R reunion, the chance for it has never looked better. Slash recently said he and frontman Axl Rose are back on speaking terms. Guitarist DJ Ashba is now out of the band’s lineup, making room for Slash to enter. And even current Guns N’ Roses’ bassist Tommy Stinson said he’d like to see the original crew get back together, even though it would mean losing his job (although he also plays with the Replacements). Keep your fingers crossed, kids.
