Former GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Izzy Stradlin has dismissed singer Axl Rose’s explanation for why he isn’t involved with the band’s reunion tour as “bullshit.”
While GUNS N’ ROSES’ “Not In This Lifetime” tour features the “classic era” lineup of Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan — with the occasional guest appearance by drummer Steven Adler — Rose told Brazil’s Globo TV in a new interview that wasn’t optimistic about Stradlin rejoining his former bandmates. “I don’t really know what to say about Izzy,” Axl said. “It’s like you could have a conversation and think it’s one way and the next day it’s another way. And I’m not trying to take any shots at Izzy. It’s just his thing is kind of his thing, whatever that is.”
Stradlin took to his Twitter account earlier today to respond to Axl’s comments, writing: “Bullshit. They didn’t want to split the loot equally. Simple as that. Moving right along…”
