GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose revealed during an interview with VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show" that DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED the band led by VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan will open some of the GN'R shows in the future.

McKagan made a surprise guest appearance in October 2010 with GUNS N' ROSES at London, England's O2 arena. He told Seattle radio station KISW last year that playing in London with the current version of the band he left in the mid-Nineties was "great." McKagan came onstage during the group's October 14, 2010 gig to play on "You Could Be Mine", "Patience", "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" and "Nice Boys", sticking around to take a bow with Rose and the rest of the group at the end of the show. The gig marked the first time McKagan had performed with GUNS N' ROSES in 17 years.

Rumors of a GUNS N' ROSES reunion with the classic lineup have been swirling for years. Rose told Billboard.com in 2009 that he doesn't ever expect to play again with guitarist Slash, saying, "One of the two of us will die before a reunion. However sad, ugly or unfortunate anyone views it, it is how it is."

Rose and original GN'R rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin played a few shows in 2006.

Rose's hour-long interview with "That Metal Show" which was taped early this morning (Sunday, October 30), a couple of hours after GUNS N' ROSES' headlining performance at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida will air on November 11 on VH1 Classic.
