    Axl calls Slash a "cancer"

    Pretty much kills all the reunion rumors.

    Axl Rose has described Slash as a "cancer that's better removed".

    The Guns N' Roses frontman also said his former bandmate was an attention-seeker when he played.

    He said: "I suppose Duff [McKagan] could play guitar on something somewhere but there's zero possibility of me having anything to do with Slash other than by ambush, and that wouldn't be pretty."

    "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."

    And he said that when Slash played the guitar, he was a "whore for the limelight".

    Earlier this month, Rose said he would rather die before reuniting with the guitarist.

    Slash, who appeared on Gun N' Roses's Appetite For Destruction and Use Your Illusion albums, left the band in 1996.

    I honestly doubt half as many people would have given a shit about Guns N Roses if it wasn't for Slash.

    Re: Axl calls Slash a "cancer"

    Slash was GnR, as far as I'm concerned. Yeah Axl has a very distinguishable voice, but Slash was the visual most people associated with GnR, with the cigarette, hair, and tophat. Oh, and the fact that he's one of the greatest guitarists ever.....

    Wasn't Axl the reason the GnR/Metallica concert in the 90's fell apart? him being a fucking douchbag diva? Isn't he the one who jumps into the crowd and starts fighitng fans? Fuck Axl.

    That's probably because VR was never meant to be GnR 2.0.

    Slash's riffs > Axl's whiny voice.

    Translation: People paid too much attention to him! What about me, dammit?!

    A large part of it was Hetfield getting hit by the pyro. Once that happened everything seemed to fall apart.

    Velvet Revolver was never meant to be GNR, so that seems irrelevant.

    Axl has a great voice, and is talented, but you can't overlook the fact that he's a huge douche.

    Axl and Slash are both terrible and they should be ashamed of the music they make

    Lol @ the idea of Axl being more talented. How? Not really comparable ~_~.

    Yet most people associate that song with Slash's two guitar solos.

    I'll get another verbal spanking by neXus if I use a smilie, so I'll just say HAHAHAHAHA. I bet even you didn't have a straight face when you typed that steaming pile of bullshit. Be honest...

    You should be ashamed of being so stupid.

Slash was a good riff merchant who obviously helped a lot with his playing, but Axl is more of a genius to me. He is more than just a singer you know.
    Axl is now, and has been, completely fucking IRRELEVANT since GnR broke up. Slash has many side projects and guest spots and is actually RESPECTED in the music industry. How many copies did Chinese Democracy sell? 10? One for every year Axl took to write the crap?

    Axl is about as relevant to music as the other four douchbags of NSYNC are.

    Axl is about as relevant to music as the other four douchbags of NSYNC are.

    Chinese Democracy was certified Platinum by the RIAA on February 3, 2009, and according to Nielsen SoundScan, has sold 537,000 copies in the United States, and about 2.6 million copies worldwide.

    Not that selling cds is any real argument as far as talent goes.

    And to fair Contraband sold I think 2 million in the US, but their second album bombed big time. Contraband probably sold double that if you count around the world I would think. But who knows.

    Comparing the numbers though are hard to do considering the record industry has really fallen badly.

    I think Contraband is number one. Just alone they sold 2 million in America. Worldwide must be much more.

    No shit? Hmmm....well touche, I guess. Still doesn't change my thought that Slash > Axl.
