Hating life because the Van Halen dudes aren't touring after all? Don't slit your wrists just yet. You might have another nostalgic hair-metal reunion to lose your shit over (in a good way). According to reports, we may just have a Guns N' Roses confab to look forward to. Word is that original Gn'R drummer Steven Adler had a long conversation with Axl recently and suggested getting the old crew back together. Axl didn't explicitly agree — according to Adler, he merely giggled and grinned — but he also didn't fly into a possessed rage. Adler also claims to have been in talks with Slash, Duff and Izzy, all of whom are allegedly ready to bury the guillotine — er, hatchet with Rose.
"We resolved a lot of shit," Adler revealed. "I said, 'You know the five of us have to get back together! That's when it will really take off again! Nothing will be bigger."
We know what Adler stands to gain from the reunion, but what about the guys who proclaimed Axl was their sworn enemy and filed the paperwork to prove it? Perhaps things with their current fearsome leader Scott Weiland aren't all wine and roses after all? Better the devil you know folks...better the devil you know.
