GUNS N’ ROSES has tweeted a sarcastic thank-you note poking fun at people who have publicly taken partial credit for the reunion of several members of the band’s classic lineup.
AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler said earlier this week that he played a role in getting singer Axl Rose and guitarist Slash back together. He said during an appearance on “The Howard Stern Show”: “I’m sure I’m not solely [responsible for the reunion]. But I did meet Axl in a couple of clubs a year ago and two years ago and three years ago. I bumped into him, and I had that talk… I said, ‘You need to get fucking back together again soon, because we all miss you.'”
GUNS N’ ROSES‘ latest tweet, which appears to be a direct reaction to Tyler‘s claims, reads: “GUNS N’ ROSES would like to respectfully thank the many people taking credit for our upcoming shows and everything in between. Especially those whom we haven’t spoken to in numerous years who, through the power of media, have somehow served a pivotal, even if non-existent, role. We and the fans thank you!”
