GUNS N' ROSES singer AXL ROSE appears to have persuaded bandmates
GUNS N' ROSES singer AXL ROSE appears to have persuaded bandmates DUFF MCKAGAN and MATT SORUM to devote themselves to the group. And his demands mean he now has a temporary replacement for guitarist SLASH, who left the rockers earlier this year - STEVE JONES, who has just completed a reunion tour with his 1970s group the SEX PISTOLS. After Slash's departure, Rose laid down the law and expressed dissatisfaction with the NEUROTIC OUTSIDERS, the project bassist McKagan and drummer Sorum formed with DURAN DURAN star JOHN TAYLOR and Jones. Now the Neurotic Outsiders have reportedly canceled tour plans. Taylor is now going to concentrate on his own solo career while Jones is to guest on the forthcoming Guns N' Roses album.
