Guns N' Roses Fuel Reunion Rumors with New Store Items Featuring Slash, Axl Rose
Guns N' Roses have just fueled rumors circulating the possibility of a reunion of the band's original members by launching some brand new merchandise items in their online store featuring Slash, Axl Rose, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stadlin, and Steven Adler.
Despite the new items featured on the GnR website, including blankets, pillows, ornaments, stockings, and just about everything else – all revealing images of the original band member and/or their classic Appetite For Destruction logo – the band has been very quiet since it was revealed that Axl and Slash had patched up their differences. The new store items only confirm that the two are on good terms, considering their longstanding copyright disputes.
According to Alternative Nation, Slash's company Dik Hayd International, LLC, who was overseen by his ex-wife Perla as VP at the time, attempted to trademark all of the band's logos in 2006 to only abandon the trademarks in May of 2007. Currently, all of the band's trademarks are evenly distributed between Rose, Slash and McKagan.
According to a source close to Consequence of Sound, the band is currently debating some offers for potential reunion shows, with Coachella being their most likely suitor, if agreed upon. As of October, however, the band did not seem close to making a decision.
Rumors began to solidify following some comments from former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland, who has been working closely with Slash, as well as a friend of Duff McKagan's wife, who drunkenly shouted "Guns N' Roses are coming back motherf*ckers!" during an impromptu video interview.
