Guns N' Roses Icons Slash And Axl Rose Are Friends Again

Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash confirms in a new interview that he and the band's sole remaining original member and frontman Axl Rose are friends again after years of being estranged.

The two had a falling out after Slash left the group in 1996 and hadn't spoken to each other for years but during an interview with Aftonbladet TV (via Brave Words), Slash was asked "I've heard that you've made friends with Axl Rose again".

Slash confirmed that they had by responding, "It was probably way overdue, you know. But it's…. you know, it's very cool at this point. You know, let some of that, sort of, negative… dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long."

This opened the door to the inevitable question about the classic Guns N' Roses lineup reuniting and Slash, who has been asked the question hundreds of times since he left the group, responded, "Oh, I couldn't answer that one, though. All right, let's get off the subject, 'cause, you know, that's an old one."

The current status of Guns N' Roses is unknown as guitarist DJ Ashba recently announced his departure and it's been reported that guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal left the group last year. Watch the Slash interview here.
