Guns N' Roses just completed their 'Appetite for Democracy' residency in Las Vegas on Nov. 24, and fans who attended the final two shows were gifted with an pleasant surprise. Former GN'R guitarist Izzy Stradlin joined the band onstage for a number of songs throughout the band's sets, including '14 Years,' 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door,' Used to Love Her' and 'Paradise City.'
Guns N' Roses know a thing or two about making a wedding scene, as evidenced years ago in the 'November Rain' video. But in real life, the group made a surprise detour in Saint-Tropez, France Saturday night playing a private wedding concert for a wealthy pal. Further making it a special night was the fact that reclusive guitarist Izzy Stradlin turned up to join his former GN'R bandmate Axl Rose for the event.
With this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction day now upon us, we’ve heard from quite a few of the past and present Guns N’ Roses members including Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler and Izzy Stradlin on why they will or will not be in attendance. Now, former GN’R drummer Matt Sorum is weighing in with what he thinks could have helped sway Rose and Stradlin to attend the festivities.
