    The real lineup of Slash and Axl Rose are reported to headline Coachella. Nothing official yet, and even if it becomes official, I won't believe it until it actually happens.

    Did he ever sound good. I would love to see the real Guns and Roses get back together. Not the crap that Axl has been pushing as GnR. There have been rumors of this for a long time tho, so until it actually happens I'm not holding my breath.

    I'm serious. He sounds like a dying cat now. Big fan of their old stuff though.

    He has no voice now. Those songs Axel used to sing back then was when he was young. Unless he had some serious laser treatment.

    Meh, who cares? Their music hasn't held up well over time for me.

    I saw Axl a few years ago. You can say he sounds like ****, but if you saw a live performance I think you would change your tune. The show was an impressive 3.5 hours and the man is running around the whole time belting it out.

    Interesting from a nostalgia viewpoint, but anyone expecting they'll capture their 80s energy will be disappointed. I saw GnR (as an opening act!) in 1987 and there is no way they could be the same band today. Just no way.

    I won't be buying tickets. My last concert was sitting on a lawn drinking wine at a Natalie Merchant show a few years ago. That's as wild as I get these days.

    These are the first time I believe the rumours, obviously as aaronvan mentioned they won't be the same band they were nearly thirty years ago, how could they but seeing them back on stage together would be awesome, Appetite is for me in the Top 10 albums of all time, even the Illusion albums were excellent in parts just too much filler.

    Nearly as good news as when Faith No More reformed, so pissed when they split-up and I never got the chance to see them, hopefully they'll tour again as I missed them last time.

    Sorry, the "real lineup" of GnR is going to take more than Slash and Axl, as far as I'm concerned.

    EDIT: I was listening to Eddie Trunk last night, he said that Axl was scheduled to be on Jimmy Kimmel, ostensibly to announce this "reunion" - then a caller to the show pointed out that Blabbermouth was reporting that Axl's appearance had been cancelled. Red flag?

    Red flag indeed. Count me in the skeptical camp.

    Axl Rose has ALWAYS sounded awful live. Always. I have seen them a few times and he has never sounded good. I have not heard him on his recent tour, I don't plan to either.

    They can be as good as they were before, you just need to get them in shape and have some blow on the ready for them!

    And your last concert sounds a dream by the way haha! If I could do that a GnR concert I would.

    If GNR can do it, so can Journey. Come on Steve, time to put your differences aside for the good of the fans.

    I meant in general ... recorded or live. It's frighteningly bad.

    So properly confirmed? Guns N Roses?

    Not "Fatty McChubbs and The Guys Who Aren't Slash"?

    Sounds like it's going to be Axl, Slash, Duff, and a bunch of guys who came in through the revolving door.

    So does David Lee Roth, plus he looks like Carol Channing but it didn't stop Van Halen from reuniting and selling a bunch of tickets.

    I'd pay to see a Slash/Axl reunion, don't much care which fillers they use for bass/drums, though Izzy in the lineup would be nice.

    While Axel looked like crap, he still has the pipes to get it done last night at Coachella.
