Slash Agrees to Reunite With Guns N' Roses If Axl Rose Apologizes

Guitar legend Slash has laid down the ground rules to a Guns N' Roses reunion but insists his former bandmate Axl Rose will have to make the first move and apologize. Slash and Duff McKagan quit the group in the 1990s after falling out with Rose, and they went on to form their own band, Velvet Revolver.

Bassist McKagan recently made amends with the singer and joined him onstage in London in October 2010, but Slash has yet to reconcile with Rose. And he insists a reunion featuring the original Guns N' Roses line-up will never happen unless Rose approached him first.

Slash says, "That would be a call I would be surprised to get. If that really happened, I would have to clean out my junk drawer, too, but I don't see it happening. But, if it did happen, I would do whatever it takes to at least have a conversation about it."

Happy birthday Axl. SLASH SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO AXL. Loser slash now sees that drugs clouded his judgement when he left Axl, the powerhouse of GNR. Then Slash badmouthed Axl to the media like a coward. He now misses that success. Slash apologize now!

sLASH SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO AXL. He should have never bit the hand that was feeding him, Axl. Axl rocks, and was always the power in GNR. Best frontman ever!Slash put his drugs first, and then backstabbed Axl to the media. Asshole Slash!Unsuccessful Slash now regrets his mistake, and wants back in to the successful GNR. Slash should definitely make first move.

wtf? GnR is better without slash? What s**t you smoking? Axl is a grade "A" a**hole. His attitude towards the rest of the band destroyed guns, slash did what any decent person would do leave that be treated like crap. It's obviously slash is better off without them he's done more than axl as since that band split! It took 10 years + to release Chinese democracy! 10 years n it was cheap bar a couple of songs!!

not being funny some of you think slash is a loser well all of you are up your own ass cus he aint he better than every guitarist in the new GNR line up and thats not saying the new line up aint good but it nowhere near compares to the original line up. slash will forever be the greatest guitarist to ever be in guns n roses because he is guns n roses all of the original line up are guns n roses. AXL need Slash just the same.

For those of you hating on Slash, "By The Sword" was easily the best rock single of last year.

Slash is a loser, I agree with Becky, Slash knows how successful GNR is and is gutted that he left the band, tough luck!! Axl apologises to nobody! It should be slash saying sorry to Axl! Happy Birthday Axl!!!! GNR does so much without slash anyway, DJ Ashba is far cooler than that wash out, Slash!
