    Guns N’ Roses bassist Tommy Stinson has told the Star Tribune that the band ‘sort of left it’ in Las Vegas following last year’s critically acclaimed residency.

    “I didn’t quit the gig or walk away from it. We just all sort of left it in [Las] Vegas.”

    The 48-year-old musician added that he looks back fondly on his time with Guns N Roses frontman Axl Rose. “I’ll be honest with you: [Axl] was always very good to me, and it was always a really good gig,” he said. “It wasn’t necessarily the easiest gig, but it was always good. I have nothing but gratitude for it. If they got [the modern lineup] together again and wanted me to play, of course I’d have to think about it.”

    DJ Ashba and Bumblefoot left Guns N’ Roses earlier this year, and Slash recently reconciled with Axl Rose, leading to rumors of a reunion of Guns N’ Roses’ original lineup. While Stinson seems unsure of GNR’s future, guitarist Richard Fortus seemed upbeat about the current GNR lineup’s future in a recent interview with KSHE 95. He was not asked about Slash and Axl Rose reconciling, so the interview may have been conducted before the news came out. Alternative Nation has transcribed Fortus’ Guns N’ Roses discussion with the DJ.

    DJ: Now, I would normally not ask you about Guns N’ Roses at all, because it is just old news, but man, are you the only guitar player left in the band now?

    Richard Fortus: (Laughs) I’m the last man standing.

    DJ: I’m telling you, you are! I know you are.

    Richard: No, there’s a lot going on with that whole thing right now. It is looking like next year is going to be the big year for Guns N’ Roses.

    DJ: Well, I’ve been hearing that, I’ve been hearing new record, but man, we hear that all the time about them. We hear that all the time about Van Halen, and it never happens.

    Richard: I can’t really speak about Van Halen. (Laughs) But I think they should get Gary Cherone back.

    DJ: Oh stop, stop, don’t get off the subject. Tell me now, you are the only Guns N’ Roses guitarist left right now.

    Richard: (Stutters) Man, I can’t divulge information like that.

    DJ: Alright, well let’s put it this way. To the mass audience out there, all we know of right now, is that you are the only guitar player left, because it’s been out.

    Richard: As far as you know, that’s right (laughs).

    Richard then sarcastically said that he wants to play in St. Louis next year with Guns N’ Roses, and hopes that all will be forgiven for the riot.

    I've been a fan of the old Guns 'n Roses almost religiously, but I've reached the point where I don't really care anymore...

    Let's just remember them like this.

    At the minimum, Axl did everything he could to shit on his fans. No showing gigs, having meltdowns over minor shit, ending shows after a few songs etc...
    How they got in the RHoF before Deep Purple or BOC makes no sense to me.

    I'd rather listen to the sound of playing cards in bicycle spokes than hear Axl Rose karaoke his own music.
