Brian May not coming up Roses.
A spokesperson for Brian May said it is "highly improbable" that the Queen guitarist will join Guns n' Roses in any capacity. That notion was echoed by G n' R manager Doug Goldstein, who said, "there haven't been any conversations like that." Phil Symes, Queen's U.K.-based publicist, was unaware of an Internet report that suggested May would be one in a series of celebrity guitarists joining G n' R on the road when and if they ever tour. "I was just with Brian last week, so I think we would know," Symes says. "I think he very much enjoys what he does, doing his own music and working with other members of [Queen]." Goldstein joked that the idea of using a rotating set of celebrity guitarists "sounds like a cool idea" and added that "[guitarist] Robin [Finck] is doing his Nine Inch Nails thing and we have no idea how long that's gonna last." Goldstein said that Axl Rose is currently laying down vocals for the long-awaited album and there's no tentative release date planned.


Slash will be at the Cheap Trick Anniversary show in Rockford IL at Davis Park on Sat., Aug. 28th. Tickets are on sale now.
