In a recent interview with The Guardian, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has revealed the details of his first conversation with Axl Rose before the GN’R classic lineup reunion.
He said that ‘talking With Axl Rose about our problems gave us more problems’. Here’s the statement:
“When Axl and I first got back together again and started talking about the issues that we had, the origins of them really went out to other people. It wasn’t just because we were passing the buck – there were other entities involved that created a lot of havoc.”
Interviewer asked how he tired of being a dangerous person, Slash responded:
“I never looked at it like that. When I think back on all the different shit that’s gone on over the years – ending up in the hospital or on the floor with paramedics or all that bullshit – it got to a point where I finally got tired of all that and was not enjoying it any more.
Trying really hard to come off as dangerous was never my thing. It was a label that was applied.”
He also talked abouh his collaboration with Myles Kennedy, and said:
“What really appealed to me was that he wasn’t another one of these guys trying to do the raspy rock ‘n’ roll voice with all that attitude.
You have already had too many guys who have done it and are so great at it. So I was trying to find somebody who’s coming from a different place.”
