Last night (May 21), Axl Rose responded to an online report that he was considering putting an end to his longtime band, Guns N’ Roses.

Yesterday, RadarOnline “exclusively” reported that Rose would retire GNR after their current Vegas residency wraps up in June, but hours later, Rose posted a meme on band’s Facebook page (created at imgflip.com): a photo of Rose that says “I’m Not Going Anywhere.” The post pokes fun at Radar, saying, “GNR fans sure have a Radar for BS! Love you all!”

Radar‘s story cited a “source close to the band,” who was quoted as saying, “Band members have been told their calendars are free following Vegas. Axl (Rose) is considering retiring and it’s done. Band members and support staff were surprised when told the news and are actively looking for work.”

Another source was quoted as well: “Axl has made enough money and wants to stop touring. He is considering retiring.” The band’s current Vegas residency ends on June 7.
