Former GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum, who are playing together in an as-yet-unnamed band with fellow ex-GN'R alumni Slash (guitar) and Izzy Stradlin (guitar), recently spoke to Launch about the current GN'R lineup, led by sole original member Axl Rose. "It's not GUNS N' ROSES, you know? [Axl] should have probably done his own solo record," said McKagan. "In saying that, also, I do wish him the best. We went through a lot together and I still have a lot of love for the guy. It's a shame that there's a...he's doing a lot to...there's a lot of bitterness..."

"Does Paul McCartney go around calling himself 'THE BEATLES'?" interjected Sorum. When McKagan answered no, Sorum retorted, "There you go."

"But he's doing what he thinks is the right thing," McKagan continued. "You can't fault a guy for that, but it's not GUNS N' ROSES."
