** In 2016, Axl, himself known for his misogynistic attitudes particularly during the classic era, lashed out at President-elect Creator/DonaldTrump and his administration, flat-out refusing to perform at Trump's inauguration. Among Axl's problems with the Trump administration are Trump's appointment of Jeff Sessions, known among civil rights groups for his racist views (in case people had any doubts about Axl's own views on race after the whole "One in a Million" controversy), and Trump demanding an apology from the ''Theater/{{Hamilton}}'' cast for their epic rebuke of VP-elect Mike Pence (who, for what it's worth, appeared to be a better sport about it than Trump was).

* PetTheDog: When Dr. Pepper made it's famous bet (see TheBet below) they offered a free soda to everyone in the USA except for {{Music/Slash}} and {{Music/Buckethead}}. Axl responded that he would share his with Buckethead.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Steven Adler's involvement with the Not In This Lifetime Tour was supposed to be much larger, but an ill timed back injury during his second rehearsal with the band messed things up for him. The original plan was for Steven to play during the first third of the shows, Frank Ferrer to play the middle (the songs Steven was never involved with), and finally Steven coming back out to do the rest.

** Steven Adler [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fODoqBgzyxM stated]] that two years prior to the start of the Lifetime tour that he was practicing nearly every GNR song (including the stuff he wasn't involved with) twice a day, every day for those two years in case a reunion tour happened.



*** After his stint with the Not In This Lifetime Tour ended in February 2017 (and his Non Disclosure Agreement expired), Steven was finally able to elaborate on why his involvement with the tour turned out the way it did. He stated in an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWWxnoCzHRs interview]] with [[ThatMetalShow Eddie Trunk]] that Duff approached him in January 2016 about joining the tour, and Steven went over to Duff's house to audition. Shortly after, he had his back surgery, but was only out of commission for 10 days..... by which point the band moved on without him and relegated him to random guest appearances. Steven stated that although he was glad he did the tour as it gave him closure and allowed him to play with his bandmates again (in Axl's case not since 1990), he didn't think it was as magical as he thought it would be without Izzy's involvement to complete the reunion, and that he grew very tired of flying all around the world to do one or two songs, and spending 95% of the shows he ''was'' at standing off to the side of the stage watching someone else play his songs (though he maintains he has absolutely nothing against Frank Ferrer).

In another downright unexpected announcement given how troubled things got, in early 2016 it was announced Slash and Duff were returning to the band. This "reunion" of sorts performed in April, being one of the first acts in Las Vegas' new arena before a headlining gig at Coachella. Also, Axl Rose was chosen to sing in {{Music/ACDC}} as Brian Johnson's replacement (he had to leave due to hearing problems).

* PersonaNonGrata: For 16 years, the group was banned from performing in St. Louis after the infamous Riverport Riot that started when a fan pressed Axl Rose's BerserkButton. As revenge, the band hid the message "Fuck You St. Louis!" in the liner notes to ''Use Your Illusion I''. Their music, however, is not banned in St. Louis. Ironically, their current rhythm guitarist, Richard Fortus, is from St. Louis. The band [[http://fox2now.com/2016/12/05/guns-n-roses-not-in-this-lifetime-tour-coming-to-st-louis/ will be playing in St. Louis in July 2017]].
** A commercial that ran on the St. Louis classic rock radio station KSHE 95 in the summer of 2011 referenced this; 2011 was the 20th anniversary of Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, previously known as Riverport, where the riot took place. "Paradise City" started playing in the background of the commercial, then there was [[HellIsThatNoise high-pitched mic feedback]] as the music stopped and someone in the background stomped away, and the narrator casually said "Sorry, he's still a little sore about that," referencing Guns N' Roses' permaban from playing in St. Louis. For extra hilarity, St. Louis also plays host to an annual Christmastime charity boxing match between the local police force and the fire department...called "Guns n' ''Hoses.''"
