Sunset Strip dwellers Steel Panther have scored a plum hometown gig. The delightfully throwback-ish band will open for Guns N’ Roses at the Forum in Los Angeles tomorrow, Dec. 21. The tongue-in-cheek glam revivalists just wrapped a U.K. trek with Motley Crue and Def Leppard and will cap off a stellar 2011 with this GN’R gig.
Good news for Guns N’ Roses fans who are anxious to get their hands on a new album. From the sound of things, the band will have new music out sometime within the new year. One thing they know for sure is the turn around time won’t take quite as long as it did with their last album, ‘Chinese Democracy.’
Former Guns N’ Roses bass slinger Duff McKagan is once again on the road with his good buddies, as his band Loaded is opening for a pair of dates on GN’R’s uber-raved about tour. When first presented with the offer to play, though, McKagan admits that he wasn’t sure he wanted to join up with his Axl Rose and the current line-up of his old band.
At last night’s Guns N’ Roses show (Dec. 16) at the Key Arena in Seattle, ex-GN’R bassist Duff McKagan hopped on stage to perform with his former band and its current lineup. Fans were likely expecting such a cameo, since McKagan’s band Loaded opened for GN’R and will do so again tonight (Dec. 17) at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, British Columbia. Perhaps Canadian fans will be treated to the same reunion of sorts. With the band’s loyal contingent of fans hoping for a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame reunion this April, seeing McKagan perform with Axl Rose again is hopefully a harbinger of things to come in 2012.
Drummer Matt Sorum, who has manned the kits for Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver and the Cult throughout his career, recently revealed details of his final days as the stickman for GN’R. With the band’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction looming, memories of those days are surely rising to the surface in vivid fashion.
When you think of pre-game ceremonies at WA/GRIZ stadium, what song do you think of? Thats right! "Welcome to the jungle"! It is the song that Monte triumphantly makes his debut too every home game. Well tonight you will hear this song again, as the Griz prepare to whop the snot out of the Northern Iowa Panthers
