During a new interview with The Guardian, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has expressed his feelings about his friendship with late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.

Slash said that ‘the world is extremely different to me with him not in it’. Here’s the statement:

“Lemmy and I just hit it off and we started hanging out and we’ve been friends ever since. The world is extremely different to me with him not in it.

Lemmy went to the doctor, who said, ‘Just keep doing what you’re doing because that’s the only glue that’s holding you together.’

And so he wrote this great lyric Dr Alibi, basically saying: don’t change anything because the change is what’s going to kill you.

He also talked about the reunion of Guns N’ Roses, and said:

“I definitely still feel the urge. The more I do it, the more I love to do it. I talk to other people that are in this business who are same age as me and it’s just the worst grind for them.

They’ve been doing it for too long, but it’s the only way that they can make money. But I just fucking just dig every fucking aspect of it.”
