CHRIS PITMAN, GUNS N' ROSES Keyboardist, apologizes for calling reunion 'a money grab'
In a recent a social media post, that's since been deleted, Pitman wrote: "This is a nostalgia tour, please don't mention those who are there the last 20 fkg years [sic] oh god no! ...(a money grab) FU."
Now Pitman has taken to Twitter to say sorry to his bandmates, explaining: "I sincerely apologize to GNR,especially the band and crew,for stupid comments about upcoming tour, ..remember kids, dont drink n text!"
The reunited Guns n'Roses (featuring Axl Rose alongside guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan) has six shows scheduled in April: two at the Coachella Music And Arts Festival, two in Las Vegas and two in Mexico City.
The rest of the band's lineup for the shows — and a potential tour later in the year — remains unclear, although keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer are all believed to be involved.
