Guns N’ Roses Fan

Wants to Use $232

Million Lottery Winnings

to Reunite Band

By: Chad Childers | 4 days ago |


Axl Rose has balked many a time at

the possibility of reuniting the original

Guns N’ Roses lineup, but that hasn’t

kept one of the band’s fans from

putting together a very lucrative offer.

The Sun reports that Adrian Bayford

just won the U.K. EuroMillions lottery

and has stated that he would like to

use the $232 million to attempt to

reunite the group. “I’d have to get

Guns N’ Roses together. I’m a real


Guns N’ Roses began in 1987 with

their ‘Appetite for Destruction’ album,

but drummer Steven Adler was fired

in 1990. Izzy Stradlin left the band in

1991, with guitarist Slash exiting in

1995, and bassist Duff McKagan

signing out in 1997.

While it may be Bayford’s wish, Slash

recently stated in an interview that he

felt the time had passed for a reunion

of the original lineup. He explained, “I

think that time is sort of passed at this

point, but there was a period where

big wads of cash were shaking in our

direction. I think the concept of

getting the band back together based

on money is not going to happen.”

Bayford and his wife Gillian have now

joined the U.K.’s Top 1000 Rich List. If

they were listed amongst musicians,

the Bayford family would currently be

slotted between Keith Richards and

Tom Jones.
