This is Slash's first interview since the band got back together
In his first interview since Guns N’ Roses’ reunion, Slash has discussed the band’s experience of getting back together.
Speaking to Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer on Boston radio station WZLX, he was asked if the band were “playing nice” on their tour. They have so far played three dates of their Not In This Lifetime Tour, which began in June, following seven comeback shows in April for Coachella.
“Everyone’s playing great,” Slash said, “and playing nice – yeah. Everybody’s getting along. We were all pretty positive that that would never happen so it’s still sort of blowing our minds.
“It seems so surreal to me,” he continued,” but everybody’s really getting along great and I think everybody’s come a long way and it’s all cool.” Listen to the interview below.
Axl Rose broke his foot ahead of the band’s comeback shows and had to use a ‘throne’ for the band’s Coachella shows – similar to the one used by Dave Grohl in 2015, after breaking his leg in Sweden. Rose is now back on his feet.
He recently also toured with AC/DC as the frontman to replace Brian Johnson, who was forced to step down after encountering hearing problems.
Guns N’ Roses’ tour continues tomorrow night (July 3) in Chicago, and the band will play 22 gigs between now and 22 August. Support acts on the tour include Lenny Kravitz, Alice In Chains and Wolfmother.
