(Classic Rock) Richard Fortus has recalled how he was asked to leave Guns N' Roses and join Slash's solo band - and how he couldn't bring himself to do it. The invitation came before Slash and Axl Rose settled their differences and reunited for the current Not In This Lifetime tour, with guitarist Fortus, who's been a member since 2001, remaining on board.

Asked how he and Slash connected, Fortus tells KSHE: "I had actually been asked to join Slash's band a while ago, at a Thin Lizzy show. We were playing a festival and his manager came up and said, 'Man, we'd love to steal you.' I couldn't do that to my friend. That would be such a slap in the face."

He says of working with Slash: "We clicked really quickly - we have a great rapport. We come from a very similar background, as far as classic rock and punk rock." Read more here.
