Guns N’ Roses reunion lineup revealed?

Guns N’ Roses may have inadvertently revealed the lineup for their 2016 reunion tour this week.

To date, the group has only announced the involvement of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, but an autographed drumhead donated by the group to be auctioned off at a benefit concert this week for the people of Flint, Michigan affected by a water contamination crisis adds three more names to the lineup.

The drumhead – a photo of which surfaced on Twitter – has been signed by Rose, Slash and McKagan, as well as guitarist Richard Fortus, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and drummer Frank Ferrer.

The auction will take place during a March 15 show at Beast Of Bourbon in Brooklyn, NY will be headlined by Ferrer’s side band, Mule Kick.

Ferrer has been GNR’s drummer since 2006, with Fortus on guitar since 2002 and Reed on keys since 1990.

If the drumhead is any indication, it’s likely the 6-man crew is on board for the 2016 dates, which begin next month with a pair of sold-out shows at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

The series of six April dates also includes shows in Mexico City and at Coachella.
