Three Ex-Members of Guns N' Roses Reunite at Hollywood Show

July 30, 2007 9:42 AM ET

Saturday's highly anticipated Guns N' Roses semi-reunion at Hollywood's Key Club went nearly as planned. As expected, Axl Rose was a no-show, but former GN'R guitarist Izzy Stradlin and bassist Duff McKagan joined ex-drummer Steven Adler's new band, Adler's Appetite, for "Mr. Brownstone" and "Paradise City." The performance, which celebrated the twentieth anniversary of Appetite for Destruction, is said to be the first time the trio played onstage together since Adler's 1990 departure from the band. Slash was, in fact, present for the evening's festivities, but "something reportedly came up" that caused him to leave before the reunion jam (he was rumored to be closing the night with "Welcome to the Jungle"). No footage has hit YouTube so far, but photos of the show are already up on Adler's MySpace, and for more on the creation of Appetite for Destruction, check out the current issue of Rolling Stone.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
