SLASH: I'm Not Waiting Around For AXL ROSE To Get His Head Together

The Glasgow Daily Record recently asked Slash about a possible GUNS N' ROSES reunion with Axl Rose. "I haven't talked to him since I quit," Slash said. "I don't really see a reunion happening.

"The things that are keeping us apart are so much tougher than money.

"He made some idle threats while we were touring and wouldn't go on stage unless we signed a piece of paper. We opted to go on stage and not let everybody down so we signed the piece of paper.

"I didn't want to be involved with the name if the band's not together anyway.

"Even to this day I still don't care. But now he's dragged it through the mud so much that even if he said, 'Look guys, I've been to therapy and I'm a better person now, let's get back together and do a show.' We'd all be like, we don't want to be in that band. 'None of us would have even bothered to think about taking the name."

Asked what would it take for Axl and Slash to kiss and make up, the guitarist said, "No amount of money will make that happen. It's a relationship that's too human, too delicate and too volatile to have money manipulate it.

"There was a period where people said, 'Why not do one show?' And I'd say, when you get him straightened out, then we can talk about doing a show, but right now it's just not my priority. I'm not really waiting around for Axl to get his head together."
