Slash says Guns N' Roses reached a point of 'no return'
Legendary guitarist Slash says at its peak Guns N' Roses was magical. But as soon as the band veered into trouble, they were headed down a spiral which they couldn’t break free from.
“I love all the Guns stuff, I’m really proud of it and really think what we pulled off, from where we were and how it all came together, was a god send," Slash tells Nova, on the phone from L.A.
"It was almost this divine plan to put this hardcore little band out there and the way it was received was great, and it was really successful.
"But then it came to a point where it was just f***ed up and there was no way to fix it, no sensible way of fixing it. I look back and think about a possible way to not be so righteous but I just don’t see it. “
While incredibly proud of being a part of Guns N Roses – one of the most influential hard rock bands of all time -- Slash says he can’t believe that after 15 years out of the band he still gets bombarded with Guns questions.
“I don’t like to be talking about stuff having to do with Guns because it’s really redundant. I haven’t been in that band or talked to anybody – well, at least Axl – in so long that I really have nothing to say. It’s a constant question people always. It’s flattering that the fascination is still there after all this time. You really can’t knock that.”
