Actually, that’s not what he said.
Original Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler says Axl Rose is driving the GN’R name “into the freakin’ ground” by continuing to tour with a bunch of “hacks” that “shouldn’t even be [called] Guns N’ Roses.”
Tell us how you really feel, dude.
Slash recently confirmed the original lineup of Guns would not perform at its upcoming induction into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, but Steve says he’s down.
“[Slash is] my brother. I know he’s up to it,” Adler told Loudwire. “He wants to do it. I want to do it. Just from what I hear, Izzy [Stradlin]’s not gonna show up and Axl will probably want to play with his hack band — his band of hacks. ‘Axl and His Hacks’ — it shouldn’t even be Guns N’ Roses. He’s just driving that name into the freakin’ ground. ‘Axl and His Hacks.’”
Adler says a reunion isn’t totally out of the question.
“My grandmother always said, ‘Time heals all wounds.’ Slash and Axl are one to each other. It’s not like one of them slept with one of them’s wives or anything — and even that’s forgivable after a while. There is no reason to be upset.”
