Guns N' Roses will not stage a reunion with their former members, the band's manager has said.

Ex-guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan have both been linked to a possible return alongside Axl Rose since the release of 'Chinese Democracy' in September.

However, in a statement, manager Irving Azoff said: "There are no plans of a reunion, nor have there been any discussions of a reunion, with former Guns N' Roses band members.

“In the future, we hope that if media have any questions concerning GN'R, they'd at least check their facts before running inaccurate stories for their own benefit."

Azoff made no comment on whether Rose planned to return to the road in 2009.

Slash embraced the recent release of 'Chinese Democracy' in a recent interview but said he didn't know about any reunion plans.

Sales of of the album, which arrived after a fourteen year wait, have continued to fall below expectations in the US, where it failed to claim the number one position.

Label bosses at Geffen Records are understood to have shouldered much of the blame on frontman Axl Rose, who has been out of contact for two months.
