Man Wins $232m, Wants To Buy GN'R Reunion
A man who won £148 million ($232 million) on the Euromillions lottery over the weekend says he wants to buy an classic Guns N' Roses reunion. Before his win, Adrian Bayford ran a music shop in Suffolk, England. Now he's the second-biggest lottery winners in UK history but still chose to return to his music shop this morning. When asked what he would do with his winnings after buying a new house and car, Adrian said: "I think I would just have to get Guns n'Roses together the original lineup, mind. I'm a real fan." There's one big problem. Members of the so-called "classic lineup" of GN'R from the early 1990s aren't exactly the best of friends. When the band was to be inducted to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this year, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for the classic lineup to put their past disagreements behind them. Sadly, Axl Rose refused in an open letter. Slash and Duff McKagan eventually chose to perform anyway, with Myles Kennedy standing in on vocals. But as noted by Classic Rock, Adrian could afford plenty of private shows with the modern GN'R lineup. A Russian billionaire paid $1 million for a private performance last year. What would you do with a lottery win like that? Would you pay for a private show, and who with? What would be your dream guitar or recording studio setup? Let us know in the comments.
