    On my Facebook page today, the official Guns N' Roses page announced a limited edition t-shirt marking 30 years since the band's first show at the Troubador in Los Angeles, on June 6, 1985. It is a replica of the flyer that was distributed around the city by the band prior to the show:

    Guns N' Roses 30 Years
    [​IMG]

    If you're a hardcore GN'R fan like me, your interest is obviously piqued. What I found even more interesting, however, is the other picture on the website's page:


    [​IMG]
    This is a well designed illustration of the famous Guns N' Roses logo, which as you can see, is marking 30 years of being in existence. What you may not know, however, is that the rights to this illustration are owned by SLASH, as he designed the original artwork, and receives royalties for every item sold with this logo.

    So what you have here is the official GN'R Facebook page ( of which everything that appears on it is approved by Axl), linking to a t-shirt website that is promoting a shirt marking the band's 30th anniversary, and using an illustration that belongs to Slash. What I'm getting at is that it would appear that both Axl and Slash have collaborated to make this t-shirt deal happen. Have they settled their differences? Is a 30th anniversary reunion tour looming? I don't know for sure, but I do know that the official website and Facebook page have been very silent about Axl creating new music with the hired hands for several months now. Maybe Axl has conceded that the new band just isn't going to draw the interest of people who spent their formative years listening to "Appetite For Destruction", "GN'R Lies", and the "Use Your Illusion" records?

    Here is the link to buy the shirt (available until Tuesday, June 16th only):

    If it happens, it goes down like Van Halen with DLR: back together, tepid tour, and fall out. Axl is too big a pain in the ass to make it happen over the long term. That first album still kicks ass. But its been 30 years; so maybe best to let that dog stay where it is.

    Even if they do a reunion tour, unless you're in the first 4 cities they visit, chances are it'll be canceled by the time they would have gotten to you. Just like every time in the past.

    That fucker hit the wall like a semi.
    He's hard to look at.
    Speaking of wigs, Slash looks the same.

    Actually, he ain't too bad. I think he could hold down the fort. What is he gonna do on the Illusion stuff though?

    Axl's voice is absolute 100 percent dog shit now. No point in a reunion, he sounds nothing like the axl of old.

    You would seriously pay hundreds of dollars to see this?

    The whole thing I think would be, "can Axl sing"?

    We all know that the rest of the guys can play. This might be what is stopping it. AXL is kind of a mess.

    Although this would be cool to see, don't put a whole lot of stock into the whole scenario. Van Halens merch page also advertises Mad Anthony's Hot Sauce and Sammy Hagar Red Rocker sunglasses among other stuff...

    That said, I too keep hearing mumbling about a reunion and it's starting to come from industry - not just fan generated....

    Where did you hear this?

    This reunion would be about 10-15 years too late. If it were to happen they could have Adler play the early stuff and Matt "robot feel" Sorum play the later stuff. With the exception of Slash, all the other guys have either hung out or played with Axl's cover band in recent years. Duff even did a S. American tour filling for Tommy Stinson who was playing Coachella with the Replacements and Izzy has been showing up at random shows for the last 10 years.

    As for the voice, I saw them a bunch of times from 88-93 and it was never good in the first place. He's like Roger Daltrey and Joe Elliott, guys who usually only sounded great in the studio.
