Former Guns N Roses bassist and current frontman of Loaded, Duff McKagen rejoined his old band last night at London's 02 Arena. McKagen performed with Guns N Roses for the first time since 1993 and played four songs with the group, including the Bob Dylan classic, "Knockin' On Heaven's Door," the Rose Tattoo staple, "Nice Boys" and the Guns N Roses hits "You Could Be Mine" and "Patience."

Lead singer Axl Rose claims that the guest appearance occured by chance as the two happened to be sharing the same hotel. He stated: "There was this guy at the end of my hallway playing all this loud music and shit. What the fuck? Oh – it's Duff!"

Nah, I don't agree.

Duff seems like a really laidback guy. He was probably in London at the same time, and as far as I know, he actually somewhat gets along with Axl, so what the hell, why not do it, As a memory of the good old GNR days, And advertise Loaded along the way!

By the way.... speaking of the good old GNR days... it's... the... future! I can see it!:

"the original Guns'N'Roses lineup reforms for $100 million! They will play 80 shows around the world on their 'Use Your Illusion III' tour"

Trust me. It will happen.
Oh money... and what it makes you do.

Wolf: I don't know man. The blood between Axl and Slash is putrified. Fvcking poisonous. Without Slash, i'd pass on it. Time will tell, but Axl fvcked Slash over pretty bad and Slash has been doing pretty well on his own without all the drama queen bullsh!t that comes with Axl.
