Axl Rose has let rip on former Guns N Roses axe-man Slash, saying he wished the guitarist was never in the band. Throwing his toys out of his pram the dreadlocked ginger told Spinner that he considers his old pal a “cancer”;
"In a nutshell, personally I consider him a cancer and better removed, avoided - and the less anyone heard of him or his supporters, the better."
"There is the distinct possibility that having his intentions in regard to me so deeply ingrained and his personal though guarded distaste for much of 'Appetite For Destruction’ Slash either should not have been in Guns n Roses to begin with or should have left after 'Lies’ in 1998."
No chance of a full band reunion then lads?
