    Guns N' Roses' classic line up will never reunite

    The definitive incarnation of the group - guitarists Slash and Izzy Stradlin, singer Axl Rose, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Steven Adler - were given the opportunity to appear together as they were inducted to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, but after Axl declined to show up, Slash has drawn a line under the idea once and for all.


    He told website The Daily Beast: "That last Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame thing was it.

    "I've been entertaining the idea for other people for years, but it's never been my inclination to get back together. Given the opportunity for us all to show up in one place, that was the only reasonable platform for us to do it, and it didn't happen.

    "I'm really sick to death of even entertaining the concept."

    Axl - who still tours with Guns N' Roses and is the only original member of the band - and Slash have a long running feud, but despite that, the guitarist doesn't think any of the original members want to appear on stage together again.

    He added: "I think you've got a situation where nobody involved wants to revisit. It's not just me - it's the whole band. And so I don't think there's a price tag that anybody's put in front of us that's going to make that work."

    Slash continues with a solo career, and has recently released his second album 'Apocalyptic Love'.
