The original lineup of Guns N' Roses--minus lead singer Axl Rose--isrumored to be reuniting to mark the 20th anniversary of the band's seminal debut album Appetite For Destruction.

According to drummer Steven Adler, the event is due to take place on July 28th at the Key Club in Los Angeles.

The club's website states that Adler's Appetite, L.A. Guns, and "very special guests" will appear that night. Adler said: "I'll be down there with my band and Slash, Izzy [Stradlin, guitarist], and Duff [McKagan, bass] will be there too. It's gonna be great."

Adler added that it was unlikely Rose would join his former bandmates, but that he expected a full reunion to happen eventually.

He explained: "Axl and I spoke to each other in Las Vegas recently, and I know there's a chance. It's just too big. Whatever the Stones make when they play, we'd triple it. It'd be ridiculous not to do it. He can't be that goofy."

Rose has recently finished a tour of Japan with his rebranded version of the band.

To me, it could be the biggest thing to happen to GnR since Appetite for Destruction, and Axl is ruining it because of a childish argument more than 10 years ago

    Comments... Axl is a baby. Clearly what's fueling adler is money, based on the stones quip. Screw GnR, that band doesn't give a damn about their own music anymore.

    despite axl's actions, i think its bull**** to even considering reforming without him.

    Maybe I was reading it wrong, but it seemed to me like Adler was more bragging about how popular a reformed GNR would be than saying, "OH GOD I NEED MONEY."

    Either way, I'm not that excited about GNR reforming. They haven't been that great since Use Your Illusion.

    This isn't just any performance, it's an anniversary of Appetite for Destruction. So it'll be all the good classics

    Axl has ALWAYS had a terrible attitude, people would just throw random things on stage, and he would storm off. It started when someone threw a rock on stage, then after that, he stormed off. After that, people did it just to piss him off. He also punched a guy in the face for calling him a "Bon Jovi lookalike".

    Axl is a bitch, he canceled a GNR show here because he couldn't drink on stage.
