Slash: ‘I’d talk about Guns N’ Roses reunion if Axl Rose apologised’

Axeman says he'd definitely take Rose's call

Slash has admitted he would consider reuniting with Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose – but only if the singer apologised to him.

Speaking ahead of his forthcoming tour slot with Ozzy Osbourne, the guitarist said he would talk to Rose about playing together if a “sorry” was forthcoming, but he didn’t expect that to happen.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Daily, he responded to a question over whether what he’d do if Axl Rose called him, apologised and wanted a reunion.

“That would be a call I would be surprised to get,” he said. “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.”

Slash left Guns N’ Roses in 1996 and is not thought to have talked to Rose since. He now plays in Velvet Revolver, as well as releasing solo material.
