Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan was recently interviewed by Gregg Stone of Northern Colorado’s 92.9 The Bear and revealed the possibility of Izzy Stradlin joining the Guns N’ Roses.
Duff said that they tried to make it happen, but things didn’t work out for them.
Duff also revealed if he’s thinking about writing a book about the experiences he had with Guns N’ Roses:
“I’ve read some really good books while I was out in the road. I was a columnist for the Seattle Weekly and for ESPN, actually, and a couple of other things. When I was this columnist, I became an observationalist because you have to write a new column every week and you have to start observing what’s going on around you.
I think the columnist in me came back out when we started this tour. It wasn’t things going on inside of the band; I wouldn’t write a tell-all about what’s going on inside the band — that would be a little tacky.”
Here is his statement about the possible GN’R album:
“I will tell you this: Things are very positive in our camp and they started that way and they remain so, if not more. But in classic Guns N’ Roses fashion, I will tell you nothing.”
Here is what he said about Izzy’s rejoining GN’R:
“That is something that we tried to make happen at the beginning. It just didn’t work out.”
