Yesterday, a report surfaced on Radar Online that spread like wildfire online: Guns N' Roses were calling it quits. Axl's retiring. The band has no more appetite for destruction. Paradise City is being boarded up.Turns out it's all lies!

The official G N' R Facebook page posted a meme-like photo of a goofy grinning Axl Rose with the phrase "I'm Not Going Anywhere" plastered on it. The accompanying message called out Radar, saying "GNR fans sure have a Radar for BS. Love you all!"

Radar's original report cited unmaned sources within the G N' R camp saying that band members have been told to their calendars are free after the group's upcoming Las Vegas residency, which ends on June 7.

Actual band members are singing a different tune. Guitarist Richard Fortus recently said that the band is working on a new album they hope to have out in 2015. Just last month, original G N' R bassist Duff McKagan reunited with Axl to fill-in for current bassist Tommy Stinson while he plays his Replacements reunion gigs.
