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.”

Marc Canter and his bride center
A short documentary about one man’s plan to get Guns N’ Roses back back together. Growing up best friends with Slash and Axl, Marc Canter had a front row seat for the rise and fall of one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Nearly thirty years later, if anyone knows what it will take to get them back together it’s him. A childhood friend of Slash, Canter was around during the formative years for one of the most iconic rock bands of all-time, writing about that time of his life in Reckless Road: Guns N’ Roses and the Making of Appetite for Destruction.
This is part 1 of 3 in a series that will be unveiled over the next two weeks byUPROXX.
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.
Do you think Guns N’ Roses will reunite and perform on Saturday?
You know him as the top hat wearing guitarist for Guns N’ Roses, but the story could have been much different. In hisautobiography, Slash reveals that he originally tried out for Poison. He also talks about how he was very close to joining Megadeth. Could you imagine if this is what had happened?

5. I just found out that if you press a number while watching a YouTube video, such as 4, you jump ahead 40%. Thanks for the tip Bag of Nothing. 6. Guns N’ Roses will tour this fall with a Minneapolis play on the Sunday, November 13, 2011. I will continue my ban on attending any rock concerts until the band fully reunites with at least Axl, Slash and Duff. I may be waiting a long time.
I have a running bet with a couple of my friends on whether or not Guns N’ Roses will reunite with Axl, Duff, and Slash. I think they will…someday. There is simply too much money to be had.
A good friend of mine who used to be a die-hard Guns fan (but now thinks U2 is the greatest band in existence) thinks they will NEVER reunite and that if they did reunite, their tour would not break any ticket records. He also adds that a reunited Guns N’ Roses tour would never break a top U2 tour in terms of gross tickets.
I disagree. Completely.
Take a look at the latest data on the top-grossing concert tickets of all time, and then take my poll.
Would a reunited Guns N' Roses tour top any of these?
