Izzy Stradlin Joins Guns N' Roses For Three Songs In New York

MTV.com reports: On Wednesday night, during the band's fourth and final warm-up show at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom, the much-rumored reunion of Axl with erstwhile GN'R guitarist Izzy Stradlin finally came to pass.

Izzy's appearance led many in attendance to believe that former lead guitarist Slash, who was similarly touted by insiders as a possible guest performer before the band's first New York gig on May 12 (see "Guns N' Roses Live: No Reunion Of Classic Lineup, But Great Anyway,"), wouldn't be far behind — but no joy.

Stradlin, who quit the band mid-tour in late 1991 and has since released five albums (solo or with his short-lived group, the Ju Ju Hounds) joined GN'R for three tunes: "Think About You," "Patience" and "Night Train."

The concert, which concluded shortly after 2 a.m., also featured guest vocalist Kid Rock on "Night Train." The four sold-out shows acted as a warm-up for GN'R's European festival appearances this summer. No other North American dates have been scheduled so far.

obv just my opinion, but Appetite was and remains a classic, Lies ep, was pretty damn good too as they still had attitude and passion (as most was recorded b4 they rose to fame), Illusions I just couldnt get into, 20 odd tracks and for me only about 5 good tunes, not Great tunes, just good, Spaghetti?!?! why bother....Chinese?! guess we'll see but I certainly wont be holding out for much...that way I wont be dissapointed any more....but lets agree, the recent press storm on AXL n GnR is PR bullsh** to promote new tour n possible release.........Using thier Illusion certainly seems to be working

" it was a one two encounter betweenaxl rose and tommy hilfiger. the rocker and designer capped a recent eve. out at a new club called the plumm in manhatten with fisticuffs. the scuffle reportedly started after axl moved the drink of hilfigers girlfriend. " i moved the drink so it would'nt spill" rose told l.a. station kroq. "it was the most surreal thing thats ever happened to me in my life". according to the 44 year old singer, hilfiger, 55 , smacked him in the arm and told him to put the drink back. he just kept on smacking me, axl said. rose was there to plar a surprise set for rent actress rosario dawson for her 27th birthday party. rose dedicated the song " your crazy" to hilfiger during his set... THATS SOME FUNNY sh**....HIMMM!!!!
