The Glasgow Daily Record reports quized Slash about a possible Guns N' Roses reunion with Axl Rose. "I haven't talked to him since I quit. I don't really see a reunion happening," the Velvet Revolver guitarist revealed. "The things that are keeping us apart are so much tougher than money. He made some idle threats while we were touring and wouldn't go on stage unless we signed a piece of paper.We opted to go on stage and not let everybody down so we signed the piece of paper. I didn't want to be involved with the name if the band's not together anyway. Even to this day I still don't care. But now he's dragged it through the mud so much that even if he said, 'Look guys, I've been to therapy and I'm a better person now, let's get back together and do a show.' We'd all be like, we don't want to be in that band. 'None of us would have even bothered to think about taking the name."

f*** Axl. He's a worn out piece of sh**. Slash was the most talent in the band. Listen to November rain, do you really give a f*** about axl in that song? NO! because Slash has 3 kick a$$ solos in that song. Talent of slash, the attitude of Duff, and the power of Matt Sorum made that band. and to boot they had Izzy on rythm for most of the time and he kicks a$$ to. so Axl f*** you. You used to be my favorite singer but ever since you stood me and philadelphia up I f***ing hate you. I'm gonna Piss on your grave when you die. And I'm a trucker that goes all around the U.S. so I'll be near your grave when ever you die, and I hope it's soon. So take your sh**ty a$$ band Guns and roses and kill yourselves. Because I'll only ever know Gun's N' f***in' Roses!

P.S. ~Lose your illusion Axl

Ease up man. Now you're probably much older than me cos I discovered GnR long after their heyday but you can't take the sh** out of Axl just for not showin up at ur home town. The mans got a great voice. Take the sh** out of Velvet Revolver instead.

Velvet Revolver Rock!! Axl is a c*** who keeps dragging the Guns n' Roses name through the dirt. I used to really respect him, but now because of everything hes done (the list is too long to write out), i think hes just a stupid fat bastad. Thankyou for reading this.

yeah, yeah...what shame they are not around anymore....I guess every real fan like me would love Axl to
get over his f***ing attitude and become a "normal" person so that the band could get back together again, ´cause we really would need some good music on this planet ....

and the trends of music have long changed ....fans for gnr may not get what they expect coz elimination of any member from the band changes not only the dynamics of the band but also the music ....be it gnr minus slash or be it gnr minus rose the story would have been the same as far as the sound of tape is concerned. let rose show up his a$$ and prove the same that he has infact ruined the f***in band and now he's shy to show up!!

Axl ass-hole rose has ruined one of the best hard-rock bands ever and I will never forgive him for it. He shoud go on some heavy-duty therapy or just get a right good smacking cause I dont buy this tortured soul business anymore. He's a down-right prick and a prima-donna.
Slash was fantastic, so was Duff and Matt and Izzy was an awesome composer.
But really, the guy who posted under "Me" - don not affiliate yourself with meatl, or the human race by that matter ... how dare you wish anyone dead? Imbecil
