Saw this on MelodicRock.com. I've visited this site for a few years now and this guy's a pretty reliable source. If this does turn out to be true, this will be VERY interesting.

----------------

THE ORIGINAL GUNS N ROSES, WITH THE CULT AS SUPPORT?:
While Metal Sludge continue their crusade to get to the bottom of dealings within Velvet Revolver...a little extra info has come my way this week.
If you were to believe the rumor mill, plans for a Guns N Roses re-union have firmed, with the upcoming tour dates expected to feature the original line-up (with drummer Matt Sorum from the Use Your Illusion line-up). Apparently the guys have already started rehearsals and plans for extending the current tour dates are being examined.
Also coming to light this week - The Cult are apparently being looked at as a possible support band for the Guns N Roses tour.
Additionally - from another source just today - a Velvet Revolver split could be announced very shortly...

I will believe it when I see it. I also predict that if it does happen it will fall apart after 5 shows.

Why would the VR guys agree to split their band, fire their singer, then learn all the new GnR songs which Axl effectively wouldn't let them record with him?

Plus isn't Matt Sorum The Cult's drummer? I can't see him doing 75 minutes of L'il Devil followed by 2 hours of You Could Be Mine - maybe Steven Adler will drum for The Cult?

IF this is true, they should have all original members including Steven Adler. He was voted off the band for excessive drug use but they swear like the rest didnt do it either.

There are rumours that they are having a reunion at the Download festival, although that's probably just plain bs.

It would be great but i seriously doubt it will happen.

OK, there's a lot of rumors going around, and a lot of things don't seem quite clear.

-------------------------------------------------

IS THERE GOING TO BE A NEW TOUR THIS YEAR?
Yes, apparently it's already been confirmed.

http://www.heretodaygonetohell.com/tour/index.php

-------------------------------------------------

ARE THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF GUNS N' ROSES GETTING BACK TOGETHER?

Apparently not.

Matt Sorum has confirmed on his myspace blog that he indeed met Axl, and they had a friendly chat. There no hints of Matt Sorum quitting Velvet Revolver to join the new Guns N' Roses.

http://www.mattsorum.com/blog/blogframeset.html

Slash on the other hand has mentioned once again that he's still a member of Velvet Revolver.

http://www.heretodaygonetohell.com/news/shownews.php?newsid=1599

In several ocassions Slash has mentioned that he considers re-uniting with Axl practically impossible.

-------------------------------------------------

WHAT WILL BE THE GUNS N' ROSES 2006 TOUR LINE UP?

As of right now, it seems like it will be this.

Axl Rose [ Vocals, Guitar ]
Dizzy Reed [ Keyboards ]
Tommy Stinson [ Bass ]
Brain [ Drums ]
Robin Finck [ Guitar ]
Richard Fortus [ Guitar ]

-------------------------------------------------

IS 'CHINESE DEMOCRACY' GOING TO BE RELEASED ANY TIME SOON?

The record has been on the making for 8 years, and it's release has been constantly rumored but never confirmed.

Chances are that we will first see peace in the Middle East, or Jennifer Lopez winning an Oscar.

They are playing at Download, but I doubt it'll be the original lineup. Chinese Democracy has already been finished apparently, or at least several songs are now on the internet: http://www.nme.com/news/guns-n-roses/22414
