Is Duff McKagan Reuniting With Guns N’ Roses?
There must be millions out there who thought this could never happen, but it seems like Duff McKagan might be returning for his first full shows with the band since leaving 17 years ago. On Oct. 14, 2010, McKagan made a guest appearance with Guns at London’s O2 Arena on a couple of songs. After that initial cameo, the bassist’s band Duff McKagan’s Loaded opened shows for Guns N’ Roses in December 2011, with McKagan once again making cameo appearances with GN’R.
The first culprit to drop a reunion hint was Guns N’ Roses photographer Kat Benzova. In a tweet to Duff’s wife, Susan Holmes McKagan, Benzova types “See you in a few.”
@SuHolmesMcKagan thank you:) All good here:) see you in few

To be fair, that could mean anything, but just a few days later, Mrs. McKagan posted an old photo of Duff and Axl Rose together via Instagram:
Finally, Duff himself tweeted a picture of a Guns N’ Roses setlist, hinting that he will perform with GN’R for the band’s upcoming Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and Brazil shows:
