Ex-Gunners guitarist Gilby Clarke reckons there’s not much hope in a true, original Guns N’ Roses line up reunion – but he’s keen as hell to jump on board if it happens!
Speaking to Eddie Trunk’s radio show earlier in the week, just after Steven Adler vented about not being approached for a reunion yet, Gilby voiced his doubts and apparent confusion over the reunion.
“No one has said one word to me about it,” said Gilby.
“It’s strange, I mean obviously we’ve all heard. I actually didn’t even know the news that Slash and Axl had talked, I didn’t know! And I see him all the time,” he added.
“I don’t know, I mean obviously it would be great for music if it did happen. I’m in the same boat like everybody else!” he said.
“I want to see the first five guys do it. That would be great to see them do ‘Appetite’. If it happens I think it would be great,” – A’men to that, mate!
“There’s always offers! [But] do I really think it is really going to happen? No, I really don’t,” sighs Gilby.
“The fans want the original five guys, and I do too. It was a great band, it would be great to see that. If it did happen, I would definitely be available to do it. I always said, if Slash was a part of it, I would be a part of it.”
Damn, Gilby. Way to throw a spanner in the rumor mill!
Still, fans… don't give up hope for an original Gunners reunion!
NEVER…give up hope.
