Current Guns N’ Roses vs. Classic GN’R Members With Myles Kennedy – Readers Poll
The induction of Guns N’ Roses into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was met with dozens of questions, most particularly whether the classic ‘Appetite for Destruction’ lineup would play together. After weeks of speculation and a declaration from Axl Rose that he would not show up, attendees were still treated to a three-song performance by classic GN’R members Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler, Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke along with singer Myles Kennedy, who fronts Alter Bridge and Slash’s current band.
After we broke the news that Slash wanted to play the Hall gig, Adler also waved the GN’R flag, stating his desire to play. After Adler called the current Guns N’ Roses lineup “hacks” and frontman Axl Rose commented, “Not in this lifetime,” when asked about a possible reunion, the possibility of any incarnation of GN’R playing at the Rock Hall seemed light years away. However, the five former members who attended the induction surprised us all by jamming ‘Mr. Brownstone,’ ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ and ‘Paradise City’ with Kennedy.
But what we really want to know is whether you’d rather see the current incarnation of Guns N’ Roses featuring Axl Rose along with DJ Ashba, Bumblefoot and others or the lineup that jammed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Slash, Duff McKagan, Gilby Clarke, Steven Adler and Matt Sorum (switching off on drums), plus Myles Kennedy as the singer?
