GUNS N' ROSES Bassist Reunites With REPLACEMENTS Bandmates

According to Billboard.com, current GUNS N' ROSES bassist Tommy Stinson has reunited with his REPLACEMENTS bandmates Paul Westerberg and Chris Mars to record two new songs for an upcoming retrospective, "Don't You Know Who I Think I Was?: The Best of the Replacements". Due June 13 via Rhino, the set will feature "Message to the Boys" and "Pool & Dive", the band's first new recordings in 16 years.

Session drummer Josh Freese (A PERFECT CIRCLE, NINE INCH NAILS) was behind the kit for the new recordings, while Mars, who in recent years has foregone music for an art career, contributed backing vocals. The songs were written by Westerberg and were recorded at producer Ed Ackerson's Flowers studio in Minneapolis. At the moment, it is unclear if any further activity is brewing within the REPLACEMENTS' camp.
