The original line-up of GUNS N' ROSES is to reform, according to original drummer STEVEN ADLER.
Frontman Axl Rose is the only original member of the band in its current incarnation, but Adler claims himself, Slash, IZZY STRADLIN and Duff Mckagan may all return soon.
He says, "I saw Axl, talked with him from, s**t, what was it? Ten or 12 at night to eight in the morning, we talked. We resolved a lot of f**king s**t.
"I said, 'You know the five of us have to get back together! That's when it will really f**king take off again! Nothing will be bigger. It would be the biggest reunion ever in history.'
"He just grinned and giggled a little bit. Everybody in his band came up to me and said, 'You're the greatest f**king drummer! We tell Axl, 'You gotta get the band back together!' That's what they said to HIM!
"I've been talking with SLASH. I've been talking with IZZY (STRADLIN). He wants a reunion."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
