Gun N’ Roses has taken to Twitter to clear up a few unsavory comments made by Steven Tyler.
When the Aerosmith frontman took partial credit the band’s reunion this week, the Guns N’ Roses took it upon themselves to discredit his involvement in it all.
The potential feud between the rockers began when Tyler recalled several meetings with lead vocalist Axl Rose from many years ago. “I’m sure I’m not solely [responsible for the band getting back together], but I did meet Axl in a couple of clubs a year ago and two years ago and three years ago…and I had that talk,” he said on Howard Stern SiriusXM radio show. “I said, ‘You need to get the fuck back together again soon, because we all miss you.’ Same thing someone said to me when [Aerosmith guitarist] Joe [Perry] and I were fighting.”
The radio appearance has since prompted Guns N’ Roses to issue a sarcastic note on Twitter, slamming Tyler’s comments. “Guns N’ Roses would like to respectfully thank the many people taking credit for our upcoming shows and everything in between,” an image posted to Twitter read. “Especially those whom we haven’t spoken to in numerous years who, through the power of media, have somehow served a pivotal, even if non-existent role.”
“We, and the fans thank you! #GnFnR,” the note ended.
