Corey Taylor wishing for classic-era Guns

Corey Taylor nailed his musical colours to the mast this week with an Instagram post showing his love for the classic line-up of Guns N' Roses.

A snap on his Instgram showed the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman sipping from a coffee mug with the names of each of the classic line-up across the front.

The reunited Guns N' Roses line-up, currently touring the wildly successful 'Not In This Lifetime' tour, has seen Slash and Duff McKagan reunite with frontman Axl Rose for the first time in more than 20-years.

Classic-era drummer Steven Adler has made a couple of guest appearances on the sticks but is not a fully-fledged member of the band while classic-era rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin has not been involved at all.

In other GNR news this week, Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale, fresh from opening for Guns on the Australian legs of the world tour, was gushing in his praise for Axl Rose.

“Axl is hitting the notes, it’s incredible. As a singer I know when people are taking shortcuts and he’s not taking any,’ he said.

Andrew also says he spent his 40th birthday last year hanging out with Lenny Kravitz while watching Guns N Roses perform in the US which combined for a night to remember.

‘Slash told me Lenny Kravitz was there with them, and I’d played with him in Australia so I went and hung out with Lenny. I thought that was a good way to turn 40, hanging in a stadium with Lenny Kravitz watching Guns N Roses.’
