After not speaking to each other for almost two decades, Axl Rose and Slash may be ending their feud, or at least reaching some sort of détente. Rolling Stone points out that in a recent interview, Slash responds to the host’s remark that “I’ve heard that you’ve made friends with Axl Rose again” by saying, “It was probably way overdue, you know. But it’s very cool at this point to dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long.”
The hopeful part of my heart wants Axl to show up, scream, and completely destroy the naysayers by melting the hipster glasses right off their faces with a crushing performance ofSweet Child O’ Mine, while ushering in a new wave of hair metal to fill the void of good music we live with today.
The blackened, cynical part of my heart understands that Axl will probably let us down again.
Slash thinks so too. In aninterviewwith Rolling Stone, Slash said that Axl hates him and that a reunion performance is not likely. Then again, if you read the Slash autobiography, you’ll learn Slash is deeply scarred by his relationship with Axl. A psychiatrist could write a book on how mental Slash and Axl really are.
