Seen Guns N' Roses play recently? If so you'll notice a distinct lack of Guns N' Roses band members.

In fact only Axl Rose remains of the old crew and he's not really, you know, entirely there.

But Euromillions Lottery winner Adrian Bayford, who scooped a staggering £148 million in Friday's draw is wants to spend some of his haul in reuniting the old rockers.

The 41-year-old music shop owner from Suffolk, told The Sun: "I think I would just have to get Guns N' Roses together — the original line-up, mind. I am a real fan."

Many believe the best G N' F-in R line-up was those that recorded their 1987 album 'Appetite For Destruction. It consisted of Axl, Guitarist Slash (left the band in 1996), bassist Duff McKagan (left in 1997) and rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin (ducked out in 1991).

Most have returned to the band at various times for short periods but Slash has never gone back.
