SiriusXM's Guns N' Roses Radio features music from the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees' entire iconic career, including the 1987 "Appetite for Destruction" album, which is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary. The SiriusXM channel also includes music by artists who have influenced GUNS N' ROSES, live tracks and rarities.
Former GUNS drummer Steven Adler told the "Trunk Nation" show earlier this year that Fernando Lebeis, who is part of GN'R's management team, had "some good ideas" for the thirtieth-anniversary celebration of "Appetite For Destruction".
Adler appeared with GUNS onstage last November in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as well as on three separate occasions during the U.S. leg of the "Not In This Lifetime" tour last summer.
It was rumored in September that former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Izzy Stradlin turned down a five-figure fee to play with the band at their April 2016 reunion shows.
Stradlin tweeted about the dispute, writing that the group didn't want to "split the loot equally."
GUNS N' ROSES' "Not In This Lifetime" tour features three members of the classic GUNS N' ROSES lineup — guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan and singer Axl Rose — backed by drummer Frank Ferrer, guitarist Richard Fortus, and keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese.
