Inevitably when someone speaks about Guns 'N Roses, the topic of an original lineup reunion will surface. Axl Rose recently answered questions pertaining to just that:
"I understand the 'romantic' thing, the desire, the fantasy," says Rose. "Personally, I haven't wanted other bands to reunite, or really enjoyed it when they have. For me generally something always seemed missing."
"But Guns is my life, not someone else's," he continued. "For me there hasn't been a way to make any type of reunion work regardless of money (either talk or legitimate) without jeopardizing what I feel is the well-being and best interests of nearly everyone I'm involved with in the GNR camp (including myself).
"People here have big investments of their lives in what we're doing. We've worked hard for what we have here now and continue to do so. I know what I went thru then. I know what I and all of us have gone thru since. People enjoyed the product and the entertainment our lives gave them back in the day, but they weren't the ones actually living those lives together. It's not somewhere I'd go back to or would want to go again. Life's too short."
