With all the complications- there's no way axl would just put everyone from the old band back together and hope it flies right. He even said "it could only be slash and duff" in an interview.
I'd love to have izzy back in the band and i think it's a possibility in the future. They rolled with 3 guitars for awhile so no one would have to leave.
Steven will probably never be more than a guest here and there for a few shows.
Richard seems grateful they have included him for this regrouping, i can appreciate that.
DJ and Pitman are gone!- slash and duff are back- axl is happier than we've seen him in years-this is monumental. Exciting times.
Anyway feel free to continue with the complaining about richard and frank and how this whole thing isn't "perfect"
Did i mention they've been playing coma? something we've been dying to get for years. They are doing that for us, not joe six pack who doesn't know it exists
