IZZY STRADLIN: 'No Concrete Plans' To Perform With GUNS N' ROSES In Europe

May 30, 2006

GUNS N' ROSES founding guitarist Izzy Stradlin joined his former band onstage for three songs at the final show of the group's four-night stand in New York City on May 17. Stradlin, who left the group in 1991, performed "Think About You", "Patience" and "Nightrain", the latter of which also featured an appearance from Kid Rock. Izzy was heavily rumored to turn up for the group's New York shows, its first concerts since December of 2002.

Regarding the possibility of guest appearances with GUNS N' ROSES on their current European tour, Izzy said in a posting on his official web site, "I don't have any concrete plans at this moment to join them in Europe but I will let you know if it changes. Please let people know nothing is confirmed at this point for Europe. NY was pretty cool."

Izzy left GNR in mid-1991, just around the time its "Use Your Illusion" albums were released. He has since recorded five albums on his own, either as a solo artist or with the JU JU HOUNDS.

Axl has promised that the band's long-delayed new album, "Chinese Democracy", will be out later this year, but no release date has been announced.
