As previously reported, GUNS N’ ROSES frontman and sole original member Axl Rose has denied rumors that he is breaking up the band and considering retirement. Responding to a report at RadarOnline.com in which anonymous sources claimed that the group was finished, Rose posted a message at the band’s Facebook page which read, “I’m not going anywhere . . . GNR fans sure have a Radar for BS! Love you all!”
Meanwhile, another source claiming to be close to the Rose camp dismissed the report as “bullshit,” adding that the members of the band had merely been notified that their calendars would be clear for the immediate future so that they could do other things.
The RadarOnline.com report had suggested that the band would call it a day after finishing up its current Las Vegas residency at the Hard Rock Hotel, which ends on June 7.
The source for RadarOnline.com said, “Band members have been told their calendars are free following Vegas. Axl is considering retiring and it’s done. Band members and support staff were surprised when told the news and are actively looking for work.”
Some of the current members of the GUNS lineup have spoken in the past year about recording a new album, but that is highly unlikely. The sole all-new GUNS N’ ROSES album in 23 years, “Chinese Democracy”, arrived in November 2008 to mixed reviews and disappointing sales.
