Guns N’ Roses “Reunion” Isn’t News To Me Just Yet

I’m sure some of you might be wondering why I’m not posting religious news updates like everyone else is with the Guns N’ Roses reunion getting announced. And you are 100% right to wonder. 
Well the reason why I’ve basically kept my thoughts on the GnR reunion to opinion on my radio show is because it’s just NOT news to me. At least not yet it isn’t. 
Now calm down, yes GnR performing at Coachella as headliners is big. I admit it. But it’s not this “OH MY GOD!!” storm that everyone from bloggers to Billboard is making it out to be. The reason I say this is if you have a sliver of knowledge about Guns N’ Roses than you know this entire reunion could implode before the show even happens. 
Plus as of the time I’m writing this it’s not even a FULL reunion of one line up. It’s Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan. Three original members out of 5 does not a reunion make in my books. It’s a returning members line up, NOT a reunion line up. 
But getting back to my imploding remark. Right now it’s January. Coachella is in April. That is way more than enough time for Axl to get mad at Slash for farting too loud in the rehearsal space bathroom and deciding to cancel the whole thing or something trivial like it. Hell, Axl went from being booked on Jimmy Kimmel Live to address the reunion to pulling out of that in less than a week. 
Add into the fact the Axl is NOTORIOUS for being a “I show up when I’m ready” personality and there’s no guarantee the actual performance will happen at Coachella. He could decide minutes before being scheduled to go on that he’s not ready and BOOM it’s all over…in typical Axl and Guns N’ Roses fashion. 
Now IF this Coachella show happens and IF this promised version of Guns N’ Roses announces a tour THEN it’ll be newsworthy and not only will I report it but I’ll be in line for tickets. 
But until both of the above actually happens this is all just hype that could end with disappointment for all.
