It's not going to happen for "some time" according to Slash, but he's not denying it's going to happen, and Duff McKagen has just confirmed it via his new duff-loaded.com site:

"So I’m sitting here in Brussels, Belgium and I receive an email that Duff-Loaded.com is ready to go! It has been a long time coming that myself and Loaded finally get our own official ‘dot com’ style website. We are really looking forward to servicing the new site with all kinds of cool behind the scenes video and music, as well as posts from the studio, tour, etc...

I’m currently finishing up the UK/Euro leg on the VR tour and we have played some of the most inspired gigs of my lifetime in the last couple of weeks. Been writing a ton of music too and generally have just been wholly re-inspired music-wise.

Loaded looks to record a follow-up to Dark Days here in late April or so and we are totally looking forward to just hanging with each other again. Of course we will then embark on the world tour opening for Led Zeppelin, followed by a co-headlining tour with the Stones and U2!

So there you have it, nothing but ‘straight-shooting’ here at Duff-Loaded.com! Let the games begin!"

VR, The Rolling Stones and U2?? Sounds like April Fool's Day to me.

Possible. Although posted a little late in the day.

This is all before Weiland was officially dismissed though, which has been on the cards for two weeks.

Anything is possible, but I don't see what the Stones or U2 would have to gain from touring together. And I really don't know how much of a common fanbase that they have. It seems like a strange combination to me.
