In a new interview with Consequence of Sound , former GUNS NROSES manager VICKY HAMILTON revealed why she thinks the newly reformed lineup of the band including AXL ROSE, SLASH and DUFF MCKAGAN haven’t released new music. VICKY HAMILTON has attended several of the “Not in This Lifetime” tour shows and revealed that she thinks the missing piece is original guitarist IZZY STRADLIN who is not part of the current lineup saying:

“I kind of felt like IZZY STRADLIN was the glue that kept that whole thing together and [was] the real songwriter,” Not to take anything away from AXL ROSE… [H]e has his moments of great writing, but I don’t know. I think if IZZY STRADLIN was in the band, they would have more material. Let me just be the diplomat and say that.”

IZZY STRADLIN was an original member of the band and left the group in November of 1991, two months after GUNS N’ ROSES released their epic double albums “Use Your Illusion 1” and “Use Your Illusion 2”.

In other GUNS N’ ROSES news, the band has announced a massive North America tour this summer, but ticket sales seem poor so far.


Back in 2010, GUNS N‘ ROSES guitarist SLASH released his first solo album with different singers. One of those singers was BLACK SABBATH frontman OZZY OSBOURNE. The song they collaborated on would be called “Crucify the Dead.” The lyrics were inspired by AXL ROSE and SLASH’s fragile and difficult relationship. Check it out below in today’s video! In other OZZY OSBOURNE made a stunning health revelation today.

OZZY OSBOURNE Was Diagnosed With Parkinson’s Back in 2003

We learned last month that OZZY OSBOURNE had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, which is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. It appeared at the time that OZZY OSBOURNE received the diagnosis in 2019, but in a new interview OSBOURNE revealed he had been diagnosed with the disease in 2003. During an interview with the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday, February 12th OSBOURNE admitted he was “first diagnosed back in 2003.” Last month, OSBOURNE appeared on  Good Morning America and indicated that his diagnosis came from a year ago. In the interview with the Los Angeles Times, OSBOURNE said:

“I’m not dying from Parkinson’s,” O”I’ve been working with it most of my life. I’ve cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, my God!’ You’d go, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him.’”

Last month SHARON OSBOURNEOZZY’s Wife and manager told  Good Morning America

“It’s PRKN 2. There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s; it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s … like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”

OZZY OSBOURNE is currently taking medication to deal with the disease and he is about to release his first solo album in a decade titled Ordinary Man, which comes out on Feb. 21. To date OZZY OSBOURNE has released several singles including “Under the Graveyard,” “Straight to Hell” and the title track. The album features appearances from GUNS N’ ROSES members SLASH and DUFF MCKAGAN in addition to ELTON JOHN and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer CHAD SMITH. OZZY OSBOURNE also plans to tour to support the record as well with tour dates planned in the later part of the year.
