GN'R Reunion Tour 2009?
>> Guns N' Reunion <<
Can Chinese Democracy heal band's rift?
Now Chinese Democracy has finally been released, the whispers around Guns N' Roses are about a reunion tour next year.
The proper band.
Which would mean Axl and Slash back together.
First look, this seems unlikely.
Axl's paranoia about Slash back in the 1990s got so bad he thought Slash was a kind of "psychic vampire", sucking all the creativity out of him, and refused to be in the same building as him.
One rumour was that when Rose's old management company, Sanctuary Records, moved their offices from Santa Monica to West Hollywood, Axl was livid as his office was now close to Slash's.
Yet GN'R watchers have started to lay shorter odds on a tour taking place.
Rose is now under the guidance of uber-manager Irving Azoff, and we're told that Azoff has made progress at persuading Axl that a reformed band would be the right way to showcase his genius.
There's so much money at stake it's in everyone's interests to talk Rose round.
