I would say so. Hell, you could argue Axl is at the least creatively retired as well.

I hope not :( I think he's probably still writing and recording songs but is choosing not to release them for some reason. It's only been 3 years since he last put out music (6 songs in 2016), but yeh it's been 9 years since he released a full album so maybe he is semi retired?

He still tweets once a year so he's not fully retired yet :lol:

he probably just doesn't give a flying fuck about anything, especially about a nostalgia act with all its laundry bags and yo-yos.

Yeah m, sometime around 1991. He’s now living off Axl’s vision. Lucky guy. 

Axl's vision? WTHell. What vision? Following Izzy out to CA. Izzy befriending this guy,  Axl, in high school for a garage band.  Fsst forward. Izzy and all 4 guys living on the edge, hand to mouth, barely existing.  Slash and Stevie ,friends from school. Some blond, skinny called Duff. These 5 guys meeting up who were the perfect mix. Ok. More like the perfect storm, but perfect.   It was 5.   Izzy was a huge piece of songwriting AFD to UYL.     I dont get the put downs around here for Izzy and Steven too. Both men are long gone doing their thing living their own lives  2019, 2020.

The blatant insults are unnecessary but I can certainly understand why some fans (myself included) are tired of hearing about them when it's pretty clear that they won't be rejoining the band any time soon.

I'm one of the biggest fans of Chinese Democracy and I cannot help but lol at the thought of Izzy  "living off of Axl's vision". 

Haven't seen Axl butt kissing like that in awhile :lol:

My brother has a friend named JT and he's worked with Izzy on some of his albums. I think the last time he worked with Izzy was a couple of years ago. I think before Slash and Duff re-joined GNR. Axl said Izzy likes to drive around in his bus. lol Let's face it the guy doesn't have to work for money anymore. I'm sure he's comfy.

It’s based off a quote Axl from an interview where he something to that effect. I agree somewhat with Axl. Izzys lifestyle is somewhat based off Axl’s vision for the band.

I heard that Izzy is doing charity for the homeless in L.A and west coast. I heard from a radio from finnish rockstar Rane Raitsikka that Izzy drives his motorcycle and gives food to the homeless.

So the title of thread is has he retired?  He is not part of GNR and wont be. He does not do social  media. He ghosts fsns and personslly, I dont think he is that close with Duff, Slash  .  Stradlin doesn't put out his hobby of songs anymore.Clearly, he is just living a good retired life at 57 going on 58.  I think it is kind of neat to have ended his story his way.

Izzy essentially retired in 91. I don’t think he’s done anything full time with 100% dedication since. 
 

Well for him.

Unless they have absolutely no intention to play anymore, no one announces a retirement from music. Just look at Van Halen or ACDC, are they retired? Ozzy and Paul Mccartney are in their 70s and still releasing albums and Chuck Berry even played shows at 90 years old.
