Are Guns N' Roses getting the (original, beloved) band back together? Axl Rose's longtime hard-rock outfit has been teasing fans over the past few days with some curious behavior, including some unexplained ads in movie theaters.
According to UltimateClassicRock.com, brief clips of the band's "Welcome to the Jungle" have been playing prior to recent screenings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The videos feature black-and-white crowd footage, and nothing else--certainly nothing in the way of an explanation.
Meanwhile, GN'R's official website has been suspiciously redesigned with a large image of the band's "classic" emblem on the home page. Is Rose bringing back Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler, all of the above, or none of the above? Nikki Sixx certainly seems to think that "everybody knows" something big is coming.
Rumors are swirling that a classic lineup of Guns N' Roses, which fans have been waiting to witness for years, is headlining the 2016 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival; next year's lineup is expected to be released in early January. It's been seven years since Chinese Democracy, Rose's most recent album as the leader of Guns N' Roses.
