He's not going anywhere...
Loudwire reports that Guns N' Roses have denied a report from Radar Online that the band would split up because Axl Rose is planning to retire. The "plan" to retire was set for after the June 7 show of their Las Vegas residency. The report claims that band members have been told their calendars were clear after the shows. It quoted a source that said Rose was considering retirement and it was "done".
The statement about their "calendars being cleared" is not new as the band regularly gets time off to pursue other projects in between GNR stints. Bassist Tommy Stinson, who worked reunion dates with The Replacements this year, will continue with their remaining shows. Richard Fortus and Dizzy Reed will work with the The Dead Daisies and guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal will likely continue with solo work. Guitarist DJ Ashba and his band Sixx: A.M. are working on a new album.
