Slash on Possible Guns N' Roses Reunion at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: "I Have No Idea What’s Going On"

The latest person to stoke those fires is Guns N' Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed, who has been a member of the band since 1991. Speaking to Billboard, Reed said "I know that all the original band is going to be there, I don’t know exactly what’s going to go down.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, the guitarist recently appeared on Washington D.C.'s DC101 and was asked about the possibility of a reunion at the induction ceremony in April.

“I know that there’s a lot of rumor about it, as always when it comes to GNR, out there on the Internet and stuff," said Slash, "but as it stands right this second, I have no idea what’s going on."
