Slash would consider GNR reunion, but Axl would have to apologise

Slash says he would consider rejoining Guns N Roses if Axl Rose called him up and apologised for past whatevers, though the guitarist admitted himself that’s not very likely to happen.

Asked whether he’d ever consider working with Axl again by the LA Daily News, Slash said: “All things considered, that would be a call I would be surprised to get. 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”.

Axl would probably also have to pledge to become a little bit more reliable on the showing up for gigs on time front. That’s something Slash seems to rate highly and, he says, something even Ozzy Osbourne, who the guitarist is currently supporting on tour, can get right.

He added: “I guess you could say I’ve worked with some high maintenance singers, but Ozzy is one of the most professional people I’ve ever met. Even back in the day, when he was out of control, one thing you could always count on with Ozzy was he would do the gig. It was never an issue. I can deal with all the craziness in the world as long as you do your gig”.
