Slash spoke to “GQ”, where he confirmed that him and another former member of Guns N’ Roses turned down over $100 million to reunite. Axl anyone?
He said, “Things were so abrasive by the time I left. I’ve never thought, ‘Oh, wouldn’t it be nice to get back together.’ Because I know it wouldn’t! One of the two of us will die before a reunion.”
When asked specifically how much they were offered, he said, “I can’t remember exact numbers, but excessive. Seven, eight-digit kinds of things.” Afterward, he confirmed that it was over $100 million.
According to GigWise, Slash is sad that the world will never see the original lineup. He added, “It’s sad that something so good doesn’t exist anymore, even though we’re both still alive and on the same planet. When we were on stage we were a real force together. But it got to a point off stage where it was impossible for us to even be in the same room together and create any music.”
