Guns N' Roses reunion wasn't driven by money

Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus has revealed that the band didn't reunite for money because frontman Axl Rose and Slash simply don't need it. 

Chatting to radio station KSHE recently, Fortus explained that the decision to reform with the original line-up was born from a genuine love of what they do and if money was a real factor this reunion would have taken place many years ago:

"No. Axl has been going on, on time for years before [the reunion]. It's been great. Is [money] the motivating factor for him? Absolutely not. I've never seen the guy motivated by money, as I've known him. Otherwise, this reunion would have happened a long time ago."

He added: "Honestly, I don't think [money] was a motivating factor for anybody, other than the stars just seemed to align. We didn't have a bass player, we didn't have a guitar player. Really, that's how it sort of happened."

The 'Welcome To The Jungle' rockers will perform at London's Olympic Stadium on June 16 and general sale for the show is due to begin on Friday, December 9. Priority tickets go on sale tomorrow (December 9).
