5 Reasons Why Guns N' Roses Will Reunite (VOTE)
Guns N' Roses Original Line Up
1. The Loyal Fans
First reason why I think Guns N Roses should reunite is because this monster band has become so huge and popular having true, devoted followers since 1985 when the band formed as well as new fans and especially kids that have never seen the original line up live, and yes of course the band won't be as exciting as it was let's say in 1991 when GnR was at its peak, but still, young and old fans would really be thrilled to see the "Magic Five" (being - Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler) on the same stage together rocking the stadium. This reunion would be one of the greatest things to happen in music history, or at least for me because I have been a huge fan of the band and follower since I was 13, and I would probably book the first show they would do even if didn't have the money I would take a loan, because we all know the history of the band and the "Leader" Axl Rose cancelling shows, cause this would be one hell of a spectacle to see.
Making Money In The $100,000,000 Millions
Second reason.....Now I know people will say "It shouldn't be about the money, it should be about the fans", but the fact is that money is one of the biggest factors in reunions and in music industry in general, and I don't see the problem with a band making loads of money to make millions of fans really happy. Now if Guns N Roses would do a short world tour they would probably make money in the hundreds of millions because they would sell-out any stadium in the world and for a high price too, but it would be worth it because the original line up of the group has a very devoted following all over the world. Now on the other hand if they made an album with all the original members then they would definitely make a few hundreds of million dollars more, but that's a totally different topic. Point of the matter is that financially it's VERY much WORTH it for Guns N Roses to reunite do a world tour and and if we're lucky an album, make tons of cash and tons of fans extremely happy.
They Are Still Young Enough To Do It
Third reason......A lot of people who are fans and who are not say, "They should not do it because it is going to be terrible because they are all old ". Now I disagree with that, yes I do agree that it will not be as energetic as they're prime years and it will not be the 80's or the 90's, but one thing I can say is that it would be a freakin' awesome vibe to see all of those guys on one stage reunited and in one spirit playing those legendary ever-lasting rock hits they created together, and just for that vibe and unity it would be worth your while to go and see them. So.... They aren't 70 or 80 years old YET, they could still pull off an awesome, energetic rock show for the fans, I am sure, but they ain't gonna be in they're fifties forever, so it would be about time for the band to reunite if a reunion of Guns N Roses is going to happen.
Do you think they are young enough to Reunite?
Axl Rose In His Prime Days 1991
DJ Ashba and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal Leaving Guns N Roses Unexpectedly
Fourth reason.... Now a very interesting fact is that former guitarists of Guns N Roses both left the band. Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, the rhythm guitarist for Guns N Roses from 2006 to late 2014, said that he is now focusing on his solo projects, and when he was asked in an interview about GnR he said that he did not want to talk about it because he was honoring a request made by GnR management not to say anything about the group publicly. So I find it very strange to me and I have a very strong gut feeling that something is definitely going on with the band. DJ Ashba ...... left the band in mid 2015 to focus on his band Sixx:A.M. and his family. Now that is very odd to me that a lead guitarist who isn't as legendary or rich as Slash, Zakk Wylde or what have you would leave a group like Guns N Roses from which he gets really good paychecks just to be in a way smaller band like Sixx:A.M., I am NOT judging or saying that I know for a fact because it could be that he did leave Guns N' Roses for those reasons but I seriously doubt it. So to make a conclusion on this matter I have to say that two of GnR's guitarists leaving one after another like that with fishy excuses tells me that something big is going on that they don't want us directly knowing, but having followed the band like I did for many years, it only reveals to me that an official statement should happen in the near future.
Slash Saying "The Heat Is Off" Between Axl and Him
Slash "It Was Way Overdue"
Fifth reason.... Slash has done a Swedish interview and said that it is way cooler now and that some of that negative energy has been dispelled. So basically after Slash has said these magic words everyone wanted to hear there's been a crazy eruption of massive discussions, debates, blogs with people anticipating a reunion. The fact is that there is a lot of good evidence that may lead to the band's reunion but there isn't anything concrete. If you ask me YES I do believe there is going to be a reunion soon enough because I have gathered all the information there is about it and so far so good. All we fans can do is just keep an eye on the situation and wait and hope for the best outcome, and if a reunion will not happen, WELL..... Then we will still have they're golden music, times and shows in our memories and youtube . So.... Please VOTE below on the poll if you think Guns N Roses WILL reunite or WON'T. Your opinion counts!
