In an odd coincidence, it’s Izzy Stradlin’s birthday and the day tickets go on sale to the general public for the highly anticipated Guns N’ Roses “Not In This Lifetime…” tour. By now, we’ve all come to terms with the fact that Izzy will not be taking part in the tour, which bums us out, but he has popped up on stage with the band in recent memory.
Take for instance this 2012 performance with GN’R in London where he performed “14 Years.” We’re not saying we’re holding out hope that something like this will happen, but even if we got one more member from the classic lineup on stage for just one song, we’d be over the moon.
Crazier things have happened (like this tour, for example), but if there’s one thing to expect from GnFnR, it’s to expect the unexpected.
