There are rumours floating around that the original line-up of Guns N' Roses could reform next year… and they might play Australia.
“I heard the most amazing rumour this week, from a very well informed heavy-hitter in the Australian music industry, giving me the name of the headline act for Soundwave next year,” Young told Triple M last Friday.
“Now we know that a mystery band has come in and saved the festival, and now owns it, so they are going to have a big say.”
"So what mega band could it be? I heard on Wednesday night that it would be Steven Adler, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, Slash and Axl Rose - the reformation of the original 1987 Appetite For Destruction Guns N' Roses!" squeals Young.
"Can you believe it?!"
The original line-up is Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steven Adler. However, there have been reports in the past that drummer Matt Sorum might come along as he joined the band for the Illusion albums and subsequent tour.
Listen to the interview below:
This comes off the back of the news that Slash and Axl Rose have reportedly buried the hatchet after one of the biggest rifts in rock history. Earlier, Slash revealed in an interview while touring in Sweden, that himself and Axl were, "very cool at this point".
"It was probably way overdue, you know," he explained.
"But it's, you know, it’s very cool at this point. You know, let some of that, sort of, negative … dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long."
And the question on everyone's lips, one that the interviewer just had to ask, 'will the Guns N' Roses [with Slash] every perform together again'?…
"I couldn't answer that one. Let's get off the subject, cause, you know, that's an old one," said Slash.

It's only taken them 20 years but supposedly Slash and Axl are talking again.
