GUNS N' ROSES Set Record Straight Regarding Band Lineup

October 12, 2004

GUNS N' ROSES have issued a statement refuting reports that the band are close to finding a replacement for departed guitarist Buckethead. The statement reads as follows:

"There have been numerous reports over the last few weeks from various sources claiming that one person or another has been invited to join GUNS N' ROSES. To set the record straight no one — we repeat no one — has been invited to join the band. We would normally not respond to rumours but it is wrong to allow a few self publicists the platform to mislead the media and GUNS N' ROSES fans. We will let you know when there is credible news on this subject."

Late last month, New York-based guitarist Ron Thal (BUMBLEFOOT) posted a message on his web site claiming that he was asked to join GUNS N' ROSES tumultuous ranks. At the time, he explained that "it's not definitely happenin', we're just feelin' it out."
