Guns N’ Roses, guitarist Izzy Stradlin says AXL Rose is a liar and explains why he is not involved in reunion
Former Guns ‘N’ Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin is not taking part in the band’s reunion tour and some days ago, during a TV interview, Axl Rose expressed his bafflement about the question saying “We make arrangements, and then he goes and does other things. With Izzy, you never know what to expect.”
In complete disagreement with what said by his former colleague, Stradlin made a tweet writing “Bullshit. They didn’t want to spit the loot equally. Simple as that. Moving right along…”
The tour has reunited Rose with guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan on stage together for the first time since 1993. Original drummer Steven Adler has also missed most of the tour, but that’s because he has required back surgery, with Adler joining on stage at shows when he’s been physically able.
Stradlin co-founded the band with childhood friend Axl Rose in 1985. He was major contributor to the band’s classic 1987 debut LP “Appetite For Destruction” and the two “Use Your Illusion” albums in 1991, but quit the group that same year.
