Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

As you might know, Guns ‘n Roses (kinda) played at the Troubadour in West Hollywood for around 500 people last night: cell phones were prohibited because Axl thinks that you can prohibit cell phones in 2016; videos and photos got out, of course.

The lineup was Axl, Slash, and Duff; other people are involved, including Dizzy Reed. (Dizzy Reed was the true heart and soul of Guns.) Despite appearances, that is not Izzy’s enormous white Gretsch hollowbody, but some other guy’s. Also, there are two keyboardists now, and one is a lady. It has been erroneously reported that she is the first female Guns member, but any fan would know that the football stadium version of Guns had not just female backup singers, but also an all-woman horn section. (Who were, of course, outfitted in sexy lingerie.)

Steven Adler’s participation is less clear: he did not play last night, but is involved with the reunion, somehow. Also: he posted this on Instagram and seems happy, if not great at English.

  1. It’s not a reunion without Izzy
