If you've been following the saga of Guns N' Roses even loosely over the last couple of decades or so, then you know that almost all of the bad blood that still exists between the band's original members is almost all squarely between Slash and Axl Rose.
In this whole Guns N' Roses saga, original drummer Steven Adler has always seemed to be the optimistic, excitable one in the band who just wishes everyone could get along and play those original Appetite-era songs the way they were meant to be played.
To benefit the Los Angeles Youth Network, Slash has just released a special mix of his song "Gotten," along with a star-studded music video. You can watch both the video and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of "Gotten" below.
On March 12, the first nine 10-foot-tall guitar sculptures in the Gibson GuitarTown II exhibit were unveiled on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California, and Slash -- sans top hat -- was there to take it all in. The works on display were created by Shepard Fairey, Tristan Eaton, Free Humanity, Smog City and DeeKay, and they celebrated several rock acts, including Van Halen, Rage Against The Machine and Jane’s Addiction.
We hope no one out there was holding their breath for a reunion of the original Guns N' Roses lineup at next month's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, because according to Slash, it ain't gonna happen.
