Good thread and some interesting points, but I don't think the original Guns N' Roses reunion is anywhere near 50%. Of all possible reconciliations it's easily the least likely due to the ferociously stubborn personality of Mr Oral Sex. If it was going to happen it would have done when they were inducted into the rock n' roll hall of fame.

As I see it, there are usually only two reasons why grudges mysteriously disappear and sworn enemies reunite. The first is money, and given that Axl is absolutely minted there's no amount that will make him think twice. The second is when a band are down on their luck and the only way to play big gigs, garner increased publicity and be worshiped again is with the original gang back in tandem. Whether you consider it a solo band or glorified tribute act matters not, G N' R still sell out shows all over the world and are always the subject of press attention. With those two factors unlikely to change, I'd say the chance of them getting back together is about 5%, and that's the possibility of Axl getting a large whack on the head at some point in the next twenty years that wipes out the part of his memory that holds onto grudges with a vice like stranglehold.

As for Skid Row, that's one I'd love to see but the problem is that bloke named Rachel. In so far as he won't have anything to do with Sebastian, and in truth I can't say I blame him for that. But...as it's only one person and they surely can't be raking in loads of money and sure as shit aren't playing massive concerts, who knows....

Bon Jovi are a more realistic one. If I'm being cynical, I almost wonder if Richie needed a break from the band and Jon agreed, suggesting it would be a good idea to stage a public feud, so that when he does rejoin it'll whip up even more interest. Jon always sees the big picture and is constantly looking at how they can maintain and sustain their current level of popularity amidst changing trends. This reunion wouldn't surprise me at all.

Others? Oasis = unlikely, unless Noel runs out of cash. Dream Theater and Portnoy will happen somewhere down the line as I think those guys have too much history to fall out forever.
