Has Tommy Stinson left?[edit]

I apologize if I've missed a media article confirming this (please correct me if I'm wrong), but do we know for certain that Tommy Stinson has left the band? Yes Duff McKagan has been brought back into the fold for the reunion show (and perhaps further shows down the line if it gets to that) but is this the new official lineup of the band or just a 'reunion' (if it can be called that) lineup? Are Duff and Slash in it for the duration? So far I haven't seen anything in the media that suggests this is a more permanent arrangement and I certainly haven't seen the words 'Tommy Stinson out of GNR' anywhere. Thank you.

Members[edit]

Various people have been going through and changing this article to make this "reunion" lineup the official member list, and I am against these changes until more is known. All we really now is that Slash and McKagan are set to reunite with the band for Coachella, and they have stated that they'd like to do a reunion tour. I don't think this makes them "members" nor the other guys "former members". This could all blow up during Coachella and we'll never hear of it again. I'd like to wait for official statements that this is a permanent lineup before making such changes. Thoughts? --Spike Wilbury (talk) 19:54, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

I think that them coming back for a reunion tour qualifies as them being members. And the only one who is being considered a former member is Tommy Stinson (Which I definitely hear where you're coming from) but I think that his removal and the inclusion of Slash and McKagan is really the most accurate option. — DLManiac (talk) 20:24, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
I guess it comes down to the definition of a member which can be pretty slippery. --Spike Wilbury (talk) 21:27, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Do you really think Melissa Reese is an OFFICAL Band Member ??? There is no word that Pitman is out ..

I would second this.. If Melissa is an official member, then what about all the other backing musicans thay had on the UYI tours?.. somebody with an account should fix her to be under the category "touring member"

What constitutes a touring member or an official member? How is Melissa any more or less of touring member than Frank or Richard? Gilbey and Matt were only ever touring members according to Axl...

When they are confirmed by the band as a full member they are an official member, and not just a backing musican for live performances.. in a sense she doesnt add anything to the band, that Teddy Zig Zag Andreas didn't add to the band during the Use Your Illusion Tour.. and he was NEVER conscidered a real part of the band, but a touring member.
Chris Pitman was considered a part of the band, and it's apparent that Reese is replacing the role he used to have, therefor, it's pretty safe to assume she's part of the band.RF23 (talk) 14:28, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Where is the source confirming Frank is an actual member? I think he is one but I can't find anything to link to any more than I can for Melissa. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:8804:8840:115B:64F0:570E:9726:883D (talk) 14:09, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
Frank has been a member of the band since 2006 and the fact that he's still the drummer indicates he's an actual member of the band. He drummed on the latest studio release and will likely be on the next one.RF23 (talk) 14:28, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
