Slash and Axl Rose

Slash has admitted he would consider reuniting with frontman Axl Rose - but only if the singer apologised to him. Speaking ahead of his forthcoming tour slot with Ozzy Osbourne, Slash said he would talk to Rose about playing together if a "sorry" was forthcoming, but he didn’t expect that to happen.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Daily, he responded to a question over whether what he’d do if Axl Rose called him, apologised and wanted a reunion.

"That would be a call I would be surprised to get," he said. "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."

Have a listen to Paradise City live in 1981 at the tribute to Freddy Mercury and remember how good the band used to be....
