Gun N’ Roses Formation (1985–1987) lineup 2010 Reading Festival

The group was formed in early 1985 by Hollywood Rose members Axl Rose (vocals) and Izzy Stradlin (rhythm guitar), and L.A. Guns members Tracii Guns (lead guitar), Ole Beich (bass) and Rob Gardner (drums).The new band created its name by combining two of the group members’ names. A short time later, bassist Ole Beich was fired and replaced by Duff McKagan. After a short time Tracii Guns was replaced by Slash because he did not want to show up to rehearsal. Slash had played with McKagan in Road Crew and with Stradlin during a short stint in Hollywood Rose. The new line-up came together quickly, but after deciding to go on a “tour” from Sacramento, California, to Duff’s home town of Seattle, Washington, drummer Rob Gardner quit and was replaced by Slash’s close friend Steven Adler.The band, which continued to be called Guns N’ Roses even after the departure of Tracii Guns, established its first stable line up on the so-called “Hell Tour”. In an interview, Slash stated, “That [trip to Seattle] is really what cemented the band” and established its chemistry.
