Not only has their been rampant speculation for months about whether they would actually reunite, there has been equal amount of chatter among fans and the press as to who would form this lineup. Although in the actual announcement last night Duff McKagan tagged both Matt Sorum and Steven Adler in his post, neither was confirmed in the press release or official announcement by the band. Equally mum has been reclusive rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, former guitarist Gilby Clark, or current GNR band members Richard Fortus and Frank Ferrer. It has been presumed by the media that long time keyboardist Dizzy Reed would also return.
