Axl Rose Pins Guns N' Roses Blame On Slash and Former Manager

(Classic Rock) Axl Rose believes former bandmate Slash wanted touring to damage the singer's wellbeing, and forced Guns N' Roses onto the road despite the singer's opposition.

Rose has maintained for some time that one of the main reasons behind the collapse of GnR's original lineup was their 1991 Use Your Illusion trek, which he didn't want to happen.

Now he accuses his former bandmate of being fully aware that the experience would be bad for his health.

Rose tells Adelaide Now: "The Illusions' lineups comments that I've read in media or Slash's book were, in my opinion, predominantly public gamesmanship, strategy and politics on their part. Pretending to be unaware or innocent to the public has been a common deceptive tactic often used in regard to what was happening with the band and our relationship with each other.

"As I've said before, I shouldn't have been on tour when we started in 1991.

"That had a lot to do with Alan Niven, our then manager, and Slash. In my opinion Alan wanted money and Slash wanted the touring to get the better of me given my circumstances at the time. My safety and well-being were not their concern." more on this story
