Lotto Inspired Guns ‘N Roses Reunion

Part of having a really, really, ridiculously huge bank account is being able to make (almost) any dream come true. No matter how strange or bizarre the dream may be, money can very often make it happen. Let’s take a look at one of Adrian Bayford’s dreams!

Adrian Bayford leapt to fame as one half of a record-breaking jackpot winning couple. In August this year Adrian and his wife Gillian took home €190 million on the Euromillions lottery. Adrian has been somewhat slow on the uptake to realise his enormous increase in wealth as he continues to work at his music store along with having been spotted purchasing more lotto tickets just a short while after his win.

It seems that the good news may finally be sinking in for Adrian as he lets his imagination run wild. And let’s be honest, when it comes to a bank balance of €190 million (never mind the interest earned on that amount) the imagination could really get carried away with itself.

It would come as no surprise that music shop owner Adrian is in fact a big fan of music! His tastes run towards the heavier rock side including bands like Deep Purple and Iron Maiden. Adrian recently let slip that he would love to use some of his winnings to organise a reunion of the classic heavy rock band, Guns ‘N Roses.

Guns ‘N Roses.

Although the band still exists and tours, the original lineup has not appeared together in many, many years. Original drummer Steven Adler was first to go followed by guitarist Izzy Stradlin. The remaining members continued as a band until the mid-nineties before imploding. Front man Axl Rose now remains as the only original member of the band.

Although nowhere near as appealing as they once were the current line-up can still command an impressive $1 million Dollars for a private performance, like the one they recently gave to Russian billionaire Alexander Chistyakov.

This isn’t good enough for Adrian Bayford though who insists that the band would have to feature the original lineup of  Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan and Steven Adler.

"I think I would just have to get Guns ‘N Roses together — the original line-up, mind. I am a real fan."

Music insiders think it’s highly unlikely that the band will reunite irrespective of the amount offered. They were not even seen together at their recent induction into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame. Perhaps Adrian can persuade them somehow, who knows?

Will Adrian’s dream of reuniting Guns ‘N Roses come true? If there was any band or musician alive today that you could have perform at your lottery winners celebration party, who would it be?

I would like to organise a band/musical performance of the group named "VIVA", an Indian group which was formed by all female members around 10yrs ago, but after some initial sucess, the band members got seperated. I think they had the talent & potential to make it big internationally, hence I would like to make this oppurtunity as a come back oppurtunity for them, If I can..??

Music is a part of talent of the real musicians. I would like that no one interfered in the development course of musical history. Just listen...

My dream band is Advaita.Advaita is a Fusion band from Delhi, formed in 2004. ‘A’- non, ‘dvaita’ – dual, means experiencing all as 'One'. It is the expression of eight distinct musical sensibilities that dissolve into each other to bring forth a truly unique and ingenious sound. Indian Classical Traditions are given new dimension, as they are reinvented within a contemporary soundscape in harmony with Rock and Electronica. Their music is deeply inspired by the quest to discover rhythms and textures that resonate around us and within us. Their brand of contemporary ‘organic’ fusion has been lauded as one of the most original and ground- breaking sounds to ever come out of the Indian underground music scene. They have successfully carved out a niche` for their New Age Music in the Global context, while staying true to their characteristically Indian roots. The “Advaita Experience” is defined by the pursuit of that incredible moment during performance when the musician becomes the music and forgets his own identity, resulting in thoroughly electrifying stage performances.

My reunion band would definately be 'Alleluya Band'. It may not be famous around the world but it is certainly a well known band in my home country - Malawi. The band has been in hibernation for quite a while now and it would certainly do me and all other fans out there good if this band was to perform during the 'Lake of stars' event which is an annual musical festival that takes place along lake malawi in my home country. Come all yeah and enjoy the sweet melodies this band plays... of course most of their hits are in our local language.. but why not..? Music is music... so just go with the rythm :-)

My dream band performance will be if I get a big jack pot in future I will open a live D J performance Which each and every middle class will enjoy and afford the cost because when I had gone for my son’s first holy communion to book a hotel for the party I was unable to pay the huge amount so I decided if ever GOD helps me with some huge amount I see that my dream comes true
