Slash says it was good to get back in touch with Axl Rose

Guitarist Slash said in an interview with USA Today that it was “good” to be able to get back in touch with vocalist Axl Rose. The two return together to the stage at Guns N ‘Roses in 2016, after two decades of separation – bassist Duff McKagan also returned to the band.


Slash said it was “cool” to talk to Axl Rose after 19 years without talking to him – the guitarist left the band in 1996.

Read what he said:

“I don’t know if I would have the means to talk to him, because I’m introverted and would have been difficult to me, “he said, making it clear that the first contact was made by Rose”.”Not only during that initial phone call, but also after that, it was very good to be able to get rid of some of the negative ‘baggage’ that we had been carrying for a long time. We stayed 20 years without talking and letting this problem continue to be perpetuated by the media. It became something much bigger than what really happened, so it was good to leave it in the past,” he added.

Despite the problems, Slash said he didn’t regret anything he did or said. “I don’t know what to do.”
