Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist Slash has made some revelations about the band’s reunion.
The rock star gave his first interview on “Aerosmith” drummer Joey Kramer’s radio show over at Boston’s WZLX and revealed some insights into GNR’s current state.
Slash admitted that they were not optimistic at first that Guns N’ Roses reunion would ever happen so when it did, it blew up their minds.
“Everybody’s getting along, everybody’s playing great.” Slash said. He added that it the band’s current state seems to be surreal to him but then he is happy that everybody is getting along well.
Slash also told Kramer that their early reunion gigs, such as that of the “Coachella” Festival 2016 performance, have created a positive atmosphere that pushed the band into its current state now, Rolling Stone noted.
Prior to their reunion tour, the band performed at the previous Coachella festival in which Axl Rose had to sit down for the whole duration of their performance because of a broken foot. The GNR frontman also recently joined AC/DC’s tour as temporary replacement to Brian Johnson. The Australian rock band member was forced to step down after having hearing problems.
In 2012, Axl Rose was asked if there will be GNR reunion in the future. Rose quipped “not in this lifetime” at the time. Now, the 90’s hit rock band is back on the road after 20 years for a tour titled “Not in This Lifetime” tour.
