As previously reported, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler told Howard Stern on his Sirius/XM radio show, that he was one, of several people, who convinced Guns N’ Roses frontman, Axl Rose, to reunite with his original bandmates. In response, Guns N’ Roses has posted a sarcastic thank-you note to Tyler.

A tweet posted on the band’s page seems to be a reaction to Tyler’s story. It reads, “Guns N’ Roses would like to respectfully thank the many people taking credit for our upcoming shows and everything in between. Especially those whom we haven’t spoken to in numerous years who, through the power of media, have somehow served a pivotal, even if non-existent, role. We and the fans thank you!”

Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan will perform together for the first time since 1993 at four concerts in April. It’s not yet known who else will take part – although guitarist Richard Fortus and keyboardist Dizzy Reed have just quit the Dead Daisies, saying they’ll be taking part in “a momentous project” this year.

  1. You people are f–ked up, for sure. You guys are acting like Steven Tyler committed pedophilia or something. As Ed said, G’n’R look up to Steven, Slash has toured (and played with) Aerosmith a couple times now.. none of you was in the room when ANY of these conversations happened. I know it’s a lot for a simple brain to comprehend, but there are nuances and grey areas to this stuff. Maybe they are BOTH right. Maybe Steven DID say what he said to Axl but it wasn’t the catalyst. Maybe G’n’R is referring to someone else (Tyler isn’t the only one laying claim to influencing this). Maybe it’s all just a joke poking fun at Steven?

    As an aside, that was a great interview. Steven was candid, fun, friendly… he seemed to skip over some details at times, and he’s always “on” if that makes sense, but certainly there was nothing said in that interview that warrants the jealous and petty criticisms that are on display here.

  2. I’ll never forget the first time I heard Appetite for Destruction. I was driving along the Ocean in NJ, with a friend who was a pole dancing specialist, who was smoking something, and she put in this cassette which blew me away. It was raw, melodic, angry, unapologetic and bursting with attitude, and I thought, these guys are onto something. Hair metal was so polished, and suddenly this came along. With the swagger of early Aerosmith and the anger of Motorhead, you just knew things had changed.
