In early 2000 Brian was asked by the bass player of Guns N' Roses, Tommy Stinson, if he wanted to play with them. He declined: "(...) I don't know who's in Guns N' Roses anymore and I'm in Bad Religion and I really like it. It wasn't like they were saying they would send me a plane and fit me for my top hat. It was more like asking if I wanted to go jam and see if it works out."
He's friends with both Izzy Stradlin (who played on "Appetite for Destruction", an album Brian likes a lot) and Gilby Clarke (who replaced Izzy in 1991).
BR played about 30 seconds of "Welcome To The Jungle" during soundcheck on December 6, 2000.
