Izzy Stradlin Reportedly Walked Away From Guns N’ Roses Reunion
Written by broebling on March 1, 2018
Former Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven claims that the band’s ex-guitarist and co-founder Izzy Stradlin walked away from a possible reunion with the band last year. Vocalist Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan got back together in 2016 and subsequently hit the road for the Not In This Lifetime tour. In a new interview, Niven says that Stradlin also could have taken part in some shows, but decided to walk away: “He did get as far as flying out and doing a soundcheck and then he left after the soundcheck – he didn’t want to have anything to do with it.” Guns N’ Roses will headline this year’s Download festival in the UK, and will play other dates across Europe this summer.
