The seminal Guns N’ Roses lineup is edging closer to reforming, according to original drummer Steven Adler.

Adler is understood to have recently reconciled with singer Axl Rose, prompting suggestions that the band might get back together.

In recent months, Rose has been touring with the current incarnation of the Gunners, as the only member of the original lineup.

However, Adler claims his conversation with Axl could yet lead to them rejoining Slash, Izzy Stradlin, and Duff McKagan onstage and in the studio.

He commented: “I saw Axl, talked with him from 10 or 12 at night to 8 in the morning. We resolved a lot of sh-t. I said, ‘You know the five of us have to get back together! That’s when it will really take off again! Nothing will be bigger. It would be the biggest reunion ever in history.’

“He just grinned and giggled a little bit,” said Adler.

He concluded: “I’ve been talking with Slash. I’ve been talking with Izzy. He wants a reunion.”

Guns N’ Roses are tentatively scheduled to release the long-awaited new album, Chinese Democracy, next month.
