What a life Tommy Stinson is leading. The 48-year old bassist became a slacker rock legend via The Replacements and then joined the ranks of arena rock bombast via the latter-day Guns N’ Roses lineup. In a Sept. 3 interview with the Star Tribune, he spoke on his future with both bands.
“I didn’t quit the gig or walk away from it,” he said, referring to GNR. “We just all sort of left it in Vegas.” Stinson last played with Guns N’ Roses at an April 2014 show in Las Vegas. “I reach out once in a while to that crew of people -- a lot of whom are also my good friends -- but I really have no idea what’s going on.”
