Guns N’ Roses Documentary on Reelz Claims Izzy Stradlin Started The Band
A Guns N’ Roses documentary titled ‘Breaking the Band’ aired on Reelz Channel on Sunday, and original guitar Tracii Guns has weighed in on social media, saying that the claim that Izzy Stradlin started Guns N’ Roses with Axl Rose is a lie, as Tracii himself invited Izzy to join.
The Guns N’ Roses fan podcast Appetite for Distortion tweeted, “Axl and Izzy started #GunsNRoses with 3 ‘other members’?! No love for @traciiguns, Ole, or Rob 🙁 #BreakingTheBand.”
Guns responded, “Izzy didn’t start @gunsnroses that’s ridiculous. I called Izzy and asked him if he wanted in and at that point he joined.”
He later added, “Hollywood Rose disbanded. Axl joined LA Guns and Izzy Joined London. LA GUNS morphed into GnR I asked Izzy to join.”
“Izzy was my roommate that’s how I met Axl.”
“I’m not much for interviews but I dig answering questions on social media.”
Appetite for Distortion, who started the Twitter conversation, have uploaded a new episode of their show. The episode description states:
Megadeth have canceled many of their upcoming shows following the frontman’s revelation.
“I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer,” Mustaine wrote. “It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on — but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90 percent success rate. Treatment has already begun
“Unfortunately, this requires that we cancel most shows this year. The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at megadeth.com as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP.”
