Is Tommy Stinson Still in Guns N' Roses?
The short answer is: No.
Check out his Myspace, where Guns N' Roses is nowhere to be seen. Better yet, check out the tour dates on Soul Asylum's webpage.
03/29/08 The Canyons Resort - Park City, Utah
07/13/08 Taste Of Dallas - Dallas, Texas
07/20/08 Rib Fest - Iowa Events Center - Des Moines, IA
07/25/08 Lumberjack Days - Stillwater, Minnesota
08/18/08 The Wolf Den - Uncasville, Connecticut
But don't take my word for it, NME reported last year that "[Replacements] Drummer Chris Mars retired from music to concentrate on painting, while Tommy Stinson, the teenage bassist, ended up in Guns N' Roses until a spat with Axl Rose forced his departure."
You remember the famous spat from 2006 where Tommy vehemently denied any friction between himself and Axl Rose.
You know, when Stinson threw down his bass in anger?
"In the past I have thrown my bass" said Tommy, and "we are getting along better than we ever have."
But of course, these are the types of denials that we've grown accustomed to.
