Fighting Words! Axl Rose Called Former Bandmate Slash “A Cancer”


If you’ve fantasized about a full-on Guns n’ Roses reunion, keep dreaming!

As far as Axl Rose is concerned, it’s never going to happen.

There’s no way he’d ever work with a ‘cancerous’ Slash ever again, said Axl in a new interview:

“I suppose (former bass player) Duff (McKagan) could play guitar on something somewhere but there’s zero possibility of me having anything to do with Slash. 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.”

The singer went on to say that Slash’s guitar playing he has lost its edge and that the top hatted one seems to be more passionate about being “a whore for the limelight.”

Look who’s talking!
