SLASH Shrugs Off AXL ROSE's Latest Tirade - Mar. 21, 2009

Former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash (real name: Saul Hudson) has commented on a recently published interview with GN'R singer Axl Rose in which he describes the top-hatted axeman as "a cancer."

Addressing the possibility of a reunion of GUNS N' ROSES' classic lineup, Rose said in a friendly chat with his pal, songwriter Del James, that was posted on AOL Music's Spinner.com web site, that it was "highly doubtful for us to have more than one of the alumni up with us at any given time."

"I suppose (former bass player) Duff (McKagan) could play guitar on something somewhere but there's zero possibility of me having anything to do with Slash," Rose said.

"In a nutshell, personally I consider him a cancer and better removed, avoided — and the less anyone heard of him or his supporters the better."

Speaking to Doug Elfman of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Slash confirmed that he had heard about Rose's latest tirade. "But you know, it's one of those things with him," Slash said. "It doesn't really affect me at all. At this point, it's starting to become a little bit — he's just sort of like — whatever."

Slash added, "It's been a long time. The fact that [Axl] has anything to say at all — it's like, 'Whatever, dude.' It doesn't really matter."
