Axl Rose dashes hopes of truce with ex-bandmate SlashFebruary 7th, 2009 - 5:49 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, February 7 (ANI): Guns N” Roses frontman Axl Rose has once again poured cold water on fans hopes for a possible truce with former bandmate Slash, suggesting that the two of them will never reunite.
He insisted that “one of the two of us would die before a reunion could ever take place.
The guitarist quit the band in 1993 following a series of rows with Rose, and went on to form his own successful band, Velvet Revolver.
The relationship between the two of them has not improved ever since Slash left the band 16 years ago.
“Give me a f**king break. What’’s clear is that one of the two of us will die before a reunion and however sad, ugly or unfortunate anyone views it, it is how it is, Contactmusic quoted Rose as saying.
Those decisions were made a long time ago and reiterated year after year by one man. There are acts that, once committed between individuals, they are what they are. To add insult to injury almost day after day, lapsing into year after year, for more than a decade, is a nightmare. Anyone putting his own personal entertainment above everything else is sickening,” he added.
Rose, however, said that he could still think about working with other former bandmates, Izzy Stradlin and Duff MCKagan.
“I could see doing a song or so on the side with Izzy or having him out (on tour) again. I”m not so comfortable with doing anything having more than one of the alumni. Maybe something with Duff, but that’’s it,” he said. (ANI)
