Former Guns N Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin has confirmed that he will not be involved with the reunion of other members of the band’s classic line-up.

As previously reported, it was announced earlier this year that Slash and Duff McKagan will rejoin Axl Rose for a series of reunion shows, including a headline slot at Coachella. It was not clear at the time if any other former members would return.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Stradlin said: “At this point in time, I will not be playing at any of the April 2016 GNR shows. I’ve also not been in the studio recording or writing with any of the others recently. There is so much speculation, but so very little info, [that] I thought I should reach out”.

He also confirmed that a recently set up Twitter account denying his involvement, which had made a similar statement, was being managed by him.
