SLASH's Brother Slams GUNS N' ROSES Reunion Talk And AXL ROSE
September 11, 2015
According to The Pulse Of Radio, Ash Hudson, brother of former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash, has slammed the idea of a classic GUNS N' ROSES reunion in a lengthy rant at his Facebook page, in which he also referred to GUNS singer Axl Rose as a "fat bastard." Hudson wrote in part, "You obsessed fans of GUNS N' ROSES. Fuck a reunion. If you love GUNS, enjoy what they made and move on."
Hudson also wrote: "It's all so dumb to me. Not sure if I'm making myself clear. But grow up. Get a life. If I get one more fucker asking me, 'Will GUNS do a reunion tour?', I'm blocking them. Axl is a fat bastard and the reunion would only be a disappointment and an action that would result in criticism. Just sayin'."
Hudson later posted another comment in which he said, "They [GUNS] were the best of all time, nowhere to go from there. They captured lightning in a bottle. Nothing left to prove. It's done. Are THE [ROLLING] STONES you grew to love in the '70s? Fuck no! Now a circus act. You loved Axl when he was beautiful, now he's Fat Elvis. So move on people. Buy Slash's ['World On Fire'] album."
Slash recently revealed that he and Rose had repaired their estranged relationship after nearly 20 years, immediately leading to a storm of speculation about a possible reunion of the classic GUNS lineup.
Meanwhile, GUNS keyboardist Dizzy Reed, now the longest-running member of the band behind Rose, told Loudwire that the band is "looking at probably next year" for a new tour but there's "nothing definite to report."
As for the calls for a full-fledged reunion — which he would probably get to participate in, since he was around during the classic lineup's first run — Reed said, "Whatever happens, happens."
