If I won 148 milion pounds (over $230 milion!), I would pay Axl $1 milion for every unreleased song from CD Era. According to Axl's words from 2006 (in my signature), there should be about 15 complete songs. I think I could afford it

I don't think they're interested in that band. They might want to offer $20,000 at best.
Was just going to say, if they wanted to renew their wedding vows, I know of a good wedding band they maybe interested in. Will only set them back $1 million.

A British man whoís just reaped a lottery windfall that comes to more than $232 million in American dollars has suggested he might try and use it to buy the gift that keeps on giving: a reunion of the original Guns Ní Roses lineup.
Adrian Bayford, a 41-year-old music shop owner, told reporters that ďI think I would just have to get Guns Ní Roses together Ė the original lineup, mind. Iím a real fan.Ē (According to Classic Rock Magazine, the other items on his shopping list are a new house, a new car, and some Dominoís pizza.)
Of course, this isnít the first time someoneís offered Axl Rose a pile of money to get the old band back together, and it seems likely that Bayfordís efforts will be met with the same stony silence as the rest ó but itís still fun to imagine a parallel universe where this leads to a GNR reunion and the words ďAdrian BayfordĒ become synonymous with ďrock heroĒ for future generations.
As Classic Rock Magazine points out, Bayfordís winnings amount to some serious coin, even for Axl and company; in fact, ďitís enough to buy 233 private shows by the current lineup of the band.Ē Something Axlís accountant will no doubt be pointing out repeatedly over the next few days, to no avail.
