GN'R 'Not Welcome' At UK Festival
The boss at one of the UK's biggest festivals has said the current Guns N' Roses lineup is not welcome on his lineup. Melvin Benn, who runs the Reading and Leeds festivals, told NME that he wouldn't book the current GN'R lineup because they were late for their headline slot in 2010. At the time, the crowed booed the band for making them wait, and at the Leeds event the band "declared war" on the festival promoters for cutting their set short - even when it probably the band's fault for appearing late. "I wouldn't have the current line-up, certainly not at the moment. It doesn't feel right," said Benn. What if he could book the original lineup? "I would definitely consider it, and if they could tell the time, it would be fantastic," he said. "With the original line-up it would be something very special. We'd have to give them all a watch each, but we'd certainly try to get them if they reformed." His optimism might not be enough. Original members, mainly Axl Rose and Slash, have a famously difficult relationship, which could prove too much for a true reunion. Fans are still hoping the original lineup will reform for their forthcoming Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction, but conflicting statements from band members and event organisers leave a reunion uncertain.
