Slash: "Axl Rose Hates My Guts"


Rumors have been flying for a while that Guns N' Roses would reunite to play the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on April 14, but now it looks like that's definitely not happening, and Slash is eager to explain why.

The tophat aficionado/guitarist told Rolling Stone, "He hates my guts. It's over a lot of different stuff; I don't even know. There's just no communication between us. I talk to [bassist] Duff [McKagan] and [drummer] Steven [Adler], but when it comes to old Guns N' Roses, there really isn't anybody that makes decisions."

When asked if the band is going to play at the induction ceremony, Slash said, "Everyone has been asking me what's going to happen, and they know as much as I do. I feel you're totally obligated to be present and I would love to f***ing play, but it's just something that's not gonna happen for whatever reason."

So there you have it! Axl hates Slash. Axl also called the guitarist a "cancer" in 2009, so Slash's confirmation that Axl indeed hates his guts is just the icing on the proverbial cake. The cake of hate.
