Yet another GUNS N' ROSES semi-reunion of sorts took place Thursday (Sept. 9) in Barcelona, Spain when guitarist Izzy Stradlin joined his old bandmates in VELVET REVOLVER onstage for the GN'R classics "I Used To Love Her" and "It's So Easy". This is the third time in less than a week that Izzy jammed with his old pals, having previously gotten up onstage with them in Bologna, Italy (Sept. 5) and Paris, France (Sept. 7). Stradlin left GUNS N' ROSES in 1991 and was replaced by Gilby Clarke.
In other news, VELVET REVOLVER will headline the Freakers Ball at the Smirnoff Music Centre in Dallas, TX on October 24. Tickets go on sale Saturday September 18 through Ticketmaster and KDGE.com.
Small GN'R mention at the Boston Herald site:

Bay State native Dane Cook was recently named the ``Hot Comic'' for 2004 by Rolling Stone.
