Slash Calling for Axl Feud to End

After some soul searching Slash says he wants to put his feud with Axl Rose to an end. Here are some of the interesting comments he made in an interview with Esquire Magazine.

In Slash: What I’ve Learned, the former Guns n’ Roses lead guitar player says that when he looks back on old footage of the band, he sees the hunger and attitude that the group used to have. He says, “It was just raw. It was this lean, hungry thing on its way up. It was as sincere as any rock n’ roll that I’ve ever heard, and I’m proud of that.”

As for Axl Rose, Slash says that “The split between Axl and I was a quiet one. But because there was so much attention on the break up and are we going to get back together. It got built up into this monster that led to a kind of animosity that wasn’t the focus for me. Neither one of us wants to be down each others’ throats for no reason. At this point, I’m just trying to put it to rest.”

So, what prompted this? The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, of course. The news of their induction sent speculation spinning out of control that the original lineup was going to get back together and that they were going to perform at the ceremony. The members have been mum about the chances of a reunion, mostly because of the perceived animosity between Axl and Slash.

Axl, meanwhile did an interview with the L.A. Times that said that he has “mixed emotions” about the rock hall nod. He said that it means something for their fans and he doesn’t want to spoil it for anyone. While he would be open to a reunion, only Slash and former bassist Duff McKagan would be welcome. Axl says that drummer Steven Adler and guitarist Izzy Stradlin can stay home.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is set to take place at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City on April 14.
