Guns N' Roses wanted for Superbowl 2012


The NFL have reportedly begun talks to reunite the original lineup of Gun N' Roses for next year's halftime Superbowl performance.

According to sports blogger Kentsterling.com, the NFL are hoping to convince band members Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, and Steven Adler to reunite with lead singer Axl Rose for a one-off performance at the 2012 Superbowl.

The lineup last played together as a band back in 1990, although Slash and McKagan still perform together as part of the band Velvet Revolver.

The reports come only days after Rose claimed that he would never consider reuniting with his former band members following years of tension between them.

This year's halftime performance at the Superbowl from the Black Eyed Peas has been heavily criticised in the media.

ONTD, who would you want to see perform for halftime?

They'd pretty much have to to make up for the atrocity that was Fergie screaming Sweet Child of Mine.

I won't lie, more than once during that trainwreck I looked up at my Freddie poster and wished he was still with us so Queen could do the Super Bowl.

Dear Godney was that awful. Totally deserved the #blasphemy hashtag I used. Fail, Slash. Fail.

Way to stay relevant, halftime.

GnR isn't GnR without Axel's voice. Unless there's someone else in the group that sounds similar?

I rather see like a collaboration of artists, like a hit melody or something. Something for everyone to enjoy.

I would have totally did it with Axl in the 80's he was just the hottest thing.

Same. I remember watching the Welcome to the Jungle video when I was a kid and feeling strange things about his leather pants.

I'd be more excited if they used a time machine to bring back the Guns N Roses of the 80s.

i always turn it to the puppybowl during the halftime show so i don't really care who performs.

The NFL should be focusing all its energy on a new CBA right now.

One of my fb friends was all "LOL AT LEAST IT WASN'T NICKELBACK" after the halftime show, and now I'm living in fear of a Nickelback halftime one year.

Oh, god, I can see it. And it's terrible.

Their popularity has kind of waned, though, hasn't it? Small blessings.

I'll only watch if it's exclusively Chinese Democracy -era stuff.
