Slash turned down big money offer to rejoin Guns N' Roses

Former Guns N' Roses axeman Slash has revealed that he was offered a multimillion deal to reunite with his former band mates. However, the legendary guitarist has told GQ that he chose to turn down the lucrative offer.

'I can’t remember exact numbers, but it’s excessive,'Slash told the magazine. 'Oh, you know – seven, eight digit kinds of things.' The erstwhile Guns N' Roses stalwart continued stating that he wasn't tempted to cash in on the band's success back in the 80s and 90s.

'I am a pretty realistic kind of person, and don't expend energy worrying, 'What if?'. If I hear great music we did together, I respect it for what it was and appreciate it. But I'm not like everyone else around the band who wants to somehow try to recreate it because there's so much money to be made.'

Slash walked away from Guns N' Roses back in 1996 but the band's lead singer Axl Rose has continued to use the moniker and is currently on tour in Canada with the latest lineup.
