Former Guns N' Roses Star Doesn't Have A 'Bad Word To Say' About Axl

(Classic Rock) Former Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba has admitted it was sometimes "difficult" to work with Axl Rose but says the frontman always treated him like gold and he's grateful for his six years in the band.

He bowed out last year to focus on Sixx:AM, before Rose confirmed that classic-era guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan were returning to the lineup.

Asked to draw a comparison between Rose and notoriously-moody rapper Kanye West, Ashba tells SiriusXM: "It got difficult here and there. He's definitely, definitely a unique character."

But he continues: "I had the best time of my life doing it. I'm grateful. He has a very tight-knit circle and I was fortunate enough to be part of that. And he's always treated me like gold.

"I have not a bad word to say. Although I do know if you cross him he can turn more into the Kanye side of things." Listen the full interview here.
