Regrets, Duff McKagan's had a few. Now he admits that last year's onstage reunion with Axl Rose is definitely one of them.

"I almost wish the getting on stage part hadn't happened," the Velvet Revolver told Rock News Desk, saying that the live impromptu London jam between the Guns N' Roses co-founders was a mistake because it has refueled fans hopes for a regrouping of the group's classic lineup.

On a personal level, McKagan said he's happy he ran into Rose when they wound up having hotel suites next to each other. "We were meant to connect again," he said of the chance meeting. "It was a private matter, but I'm glad it happened."

As for rejoining Rose and his current incarnation of Guns N' Roses for a rendition of 'You Could Be Mine,' McKagan blames his iffy judgment on a mixture of jetlag and energy drinks and remembers little about his car ride to the O2 Arena last October.

"It was like, 'I should be in bed right now. I've got a meeting in the morning. What am I doing here?'" Duff explained. "Then all of a sudden there's a bass in my hands."

Since that surprise appearance, McKagan says he and other former members have been inundated with inquiries about a reteaming of all the founding members, but McKagan insists it would never happen.
