Guns N' Roses join Avenged Sevenfold and Ozzy Osbourne at the top of the bill for Download 2018.
Reformed rock legends Guns N’ Roses have been revealed as the third and final headliners for the 2018 edition of Download Festival.
The group will headline the Saturday night of the three-day festival, which is due to take place at Donington Park from June 8th to June 10th. They join fellow rock legend Ozzy Osbourne and the heavy metal outfit Avenged Sevenfold at the top of the bill.
It’s a serious coup for the festival, and marks a continuation of the new-found co-operation between tempestuous lead singer Axl Rose and band members Slash and Duff McKagan. Gilbert Clarke, Matt Sorum and original drummer Steven Adler complete the line-up, representing four-fifths of the ‘classic’ Guns N’ Roses line-up that recorded 1987’s epochal debut album Appetite For Destruction.

She's a big fan of the band and this week she got to perform with them.
Pink could not believe her luck when she got to appear on stage with GUNS N' ROSES in New York City this week, singing along to the band's 1988 song 'Patience'. It's safe to say it's one of the most momentous moments of her entire career.
Currently on their Not In This Lifetime tour, Guns N' Roses hit Madison Square Garden on Wednesday (October 11th 2017) for a concert that lasted a good three hours and included covers of Soundgarden's 'Black Hole Sun' and Glen Campbell's 'Wichita Lineman'. But the highlight of the show was Pink coming in to finish their rendition of 'Patience'.

The Guns ’n’ Roses frontman and guitarist Slash are though not to have spoken since 1996.
Guns ’n’ Roses frontman Axl Rose and former member Slash are reportedly on speaking terms again, nearly 20 years after the guitarist’s exit from the band. In an interview with Swedish website Aftonbladet, Slash revealed that the two have finally buried the hatchet, saying that the reunion was ‘probably way overdue’.
When asked during the interview if he and Rose had ‘made friends again’ Slash said, "It was probably way overdue, you know. But it's very cool at this point to dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long."

The frontman was recently named as the world best singer due to his impressive vocal range.
Axl Rose is infamous for many reasons. His constant late appearances, sometimes taking to the stage almost two hours after their billed start, means every recent Guns n’ Roses tour is dogged by disgruntled fans and a swathe of bad press. The singer is notorious for his cantankerous temperament which has resulted in numerous cancelled appearances and YouTube-worthy angry rants that would give even Kanye West’s irritable soliloquys a run for their money. He is so surrounded by criticism that it is no surprise the frontman’s vocal attributes are often overlooked.
Now, the singer has been named as the best vocalist of all time on a recently published chart, an accolade that is extremely misleading given the nature of the basis for which the award has been meted out to the rock legend. The award is based on versatility in vocal range rather than any consideration for tone, grain or strength which are commonly considered as the most endearing vocal traits.

A police investigation has been launched in Las Vegas to determine whether LVPD officers went too far in helping the guitarist propose to his fiance
Daren Jay 'DJ' Ashba, one of the many people brought in to replace Slash in GUNS N' ROSES, posted a photo on to his Instagram this Saturday (10 August) of himself and his girlfriend, Colombian actress and model Nathalia Henao, whilst kitted out in helicopter helmets and microphones. In his caption for the photo, the guitarist thanked the Las Vegas police department for "the most amazing" private helicopter tour over the city, adding that the ride finished in a field at police headquarters, where he proposed and celebrated with "a bottle of the bubble stuff."
Ashba and Henao have been together since 2009
As lovely and romantic as all this sounds, the Instagram message has begun to cause a stir because it seems to imply that the LVPD gave the guitarist some very special treatment rather than, you know, being police officers. The LVPD have now begun an enquiry into the incident to determine whether employees went too far in helping the guitarist propose to his girlfriend, especially considering that he isn't even Izzy Stradlin, never mind Slash.
