Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash had a recent conversation with Consequence of Sound and revealed which comes first: The Rolling Stones or AC/DC.

Slash also revealed his thoughts about why he was disappointed about Phill Rudd…

Here is Slash’s statement:

“Where do I start? AC/DC is bar none, with the exception of The Rolling Stones, the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band ever. The Rolling Stones will always come first for me and then AC/DC.

There are no other bands that actually play that brand of really ’50s-influenced straight-up rock ‘n’ roll like AC/DC.

I love them for that. I think Phil Rudd is one of the best drummers of all time. So anytime he was not in the band, I was always disappointed.

But it’s great that Cliff is going to be back because I remember being backstage with those guys at the end of the last tour and him saying that he was gone and that he was retired.

So it’s great that everybody’s back, but it’s especially awesome that Brian is back.”

Slash was interviewed by Belfast Live earlier and revealed his opinions about Mick Jagger‘s health issues:

“I don’t think that’s something that you plan ahead for, I think it’s just something that happens. The years go by and you’re still doing what you’re doing – all of a sudden 20 years go by and there you are.

That said, I can’t imagine packing it in – especially since we’ve just sort of got a new lease of life by getting most of us back together. I would imagine whatever pace we do it, we’ll be doing this until whenever.

Any time you can get compared to the Stones on any level is cool, but I’m sure the Stones themselves – I could definitely ask them – ‘Did you foresee?’

It’s like no, one year you’re doing this tour and you take a break and make a record and then you do another tour, and the next thing you know it’s 2019 and they’re still doing it. You just keep doing what you do.”
