Odd things are happening in the Guns N’ Roses camp, as band management is now forcing some of the members linked with the new lineup to deny the reunion, reports Ultimate-Guitar.com
Multi-instrumentalist Chris Pitman, who was the only musician apart from vocalist Axl Rose to give a strong confirmation of his involvement with “semi-reunited” GN’R through such posts as “Gonna be a fun time 2016 #coachella #axlrose #GunsNRoses,” has now “denied” the whole thing. Pitman tweeted: “I was just informed by management to not acknowledge anything about Coachella, GN’R, etc. So there, denied! #GamesForDays”
Management’s decision comes in a midst of the latest reports suggesting that drummer Steven Adler and guitarist Izzy Stradlin could be involved with the reunited Guns after all. Thus far, only three musicians have been confirmed for the new GN’R lineup: Axl Rose on vocals, Slash on lead guitar, and Duff McKagan on bass.
