2 bands Slash almost joined before Guns N’ Roses

You know him as the top hat wearing guitarist for Guns N’ Roses, but the story could have been much different. In his autobiography, Slash reveals that he originally tried out for Poison. He also talks about how he was very close to joining Megadeth. Could you imagine if this is what had happened?

6. Guns N’ Roses will tour this fall with a Minneapolis play on the Sunday, November 13, 2011. I will continue my ban on attending any rock concerts until the band fully reunites with at least Axl, Slash and Duff. I may be waiting a long time.

Would a reunited Guns N’ Roses band be the highest-grossing tour ever?

I have a running bet with a couple of my friends on whether or not Guns N’ Roses will reunite with Axl, Duff, and Slash. I think they will…someday. There is simply too much money to be had.

A good friend of mine who used to be a die-hard Guns fan (but now thinks U2 is the greatest band in existence) thinks they will NEVER reunite and that if they did reunite, their tour would not break any ticket records. He also adds that a reunited Guns N’ Roses tour would never break a top U2 tour in terms of gross tickets.

I disagree. Completely.

Take a look at the latest data on the top-grossing concert tickets of all time, and then take my poll.

Would Guns N' Roses reunite?

Would a reunited Guns N' Roses tour top any of these?
