In May, Slash responded “Never say never” when asked if the band’s Hall of Fame Guns N’ Roses, lineup would ever consider getting back together. Slash also told Sweden’s Aftonbladet TV that he’s restored his friendship with Axl Rose.
“It was probably way overdue, you know,” Slash explained. “But it’s…. you know, it’s very cool at this point. You know, let some of that, sort of, negative… dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long.” Slash wouldn’t say if he and Rose had talked about a possible reunion. “Oh, I couldn’t answer that one, though…,” he added.
However, in July, two members of the band’s current lineup, Darren Jay “DJ” Ashba and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, simultaneously announced their departure which could fuel more rumours of an epic reunion. Fingers crossed for a complete Guns N’ Roses lineup and tour in the near future.
