Reclusive ex-Guns n' Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin says he's not on the band's massive reunion tour because "sometimes things just don't work out."
Stradlin, who hasn't given a lengthy interview in many years, responded to a few questions that the Wall Street Journal posed to him for a profile. He says, "The current GNR tour has been a great success for the guys. My non-participation was simply not being able to reach a happy middle ground through the negotiation process. That’s life, sometimes things don’t work out."
Stradlin reportedly did show up at one date in the Midwest back in 2017, but after soundchecking with the band, he didn't stick around to perform. He did perform a few times with the Axl Rose-led lineup in 2012.
In other Guns n' Roses news, the previously unreleased video for "It's So Easy" is now on YouTube, as are three other clips that haven't officially been online for some time -- one of the two versions of "Yesterdays," "The Garden" and the radio edit version of "Sweet Child O' Mine."
