Axl Rose and Duff McKagan sat down with the Brazilian TV program Fantástico to discuss the Guns N’ Roses reunion head of their South American tour dates. During the interview, Rose commented on why Izzy Stradlin wasn’t included in the reunited lineup. Here’s what he had to say:
I don’t really know what to say about Izzy. It’s like, you could have a conversation and think it’s one way, and then the next day it’s another way. And I’m not trying to take any shots at Izzy. It’s just his thing is kind of his thing, whatever that is.
…OK. If you understand wtf Rose is trying to say here, let me know, ’cause it sounds evasive af. Apparently, Stradlin thought so too! The guitarist tweeted his own argument as to why he was excluded from the reunion yesterday:
They didn’t want to split the loot equally . Simple as that . Moving right along……..
