    Stern related because maybe one day Howard can rekindle his relationship with Imus and Leno.

    Former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash has confirmed that he has rekindled his friendship with the band's lead singer Axl Rose — six years after the frontman called him "a cancer."

    Speaking to Aftonbladet TV in Sweden, where Slash was making a special appearance on Friday (August 21) for a launch event for the Marshall London phone, the guitarist said of his restored relationship with Axl: "It was probably way overdue, you know. But it's…. you know, it's very cool at this point. You know, let some of that, sort of, negative… dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long."

    Asked if his warmer relationship with Axl will lead to a reunion of GUNS N' ROSES' classic lineup, Slash said: "Oh, I couldn't answer that one, though…" Pressed on why that is, Slash replied: "All right, let's get off the subject, 'cause, you know, that's an old one."

    WGAS if they get back together. Axl has sounded awful for the last twenty years. Maybe them and Dokken can go on a 'singers who used to be ok but now suck' tour.

    I'm a GNR fanatic and don't want to see a reunion. Axl looks and sounds terrible now and should never perform again. Everything that band did was flawless and a reunion would only tarnish that. What they had was once in a lifetime magic and can never be duplicated as men in their 50's. Leave the memories alone.

    I remember reading a review of the mtv show saying that Axl "wheezed his way through Paradise City". No way you can keep singing like that for any extended period of time.

    Axl got his shit together and was awesome in '06. He lost his way in '10, I met him at house of blues Chicago and it was like meeting God. In '06 I saw them in London, Portugal, NYC, and northern England in a 3 week period. Yes, it was "nuGuns" but it was Axl who better than half the time is superhuman.
    Trent Reznor is of similar age. Axl is obsessive enough that he could get it together if he chose to on his own terms.
    I wouldn't bet a quarter on a reunion happening, but I'd give a kidney to see it. And I ain't bullshitting.

    I saw he original lineups '88-93 and it wasn't always that great. Towards the end it was downright boring. I remember half of Oakland Stadium being asleep in their seats during their set on the Metallica/GnR tour. It didn't help that Metallica completely destroyed the hometown crowd and Ax-hole made us wait 2-3 hours. I have no reason to believe they'd be any better 20+ years later.

    If Popcorn Adler isn't on drums with Duff locked in, and Izzy isn't putting down some serious Keith Richards guitar riffs (and writing great songs for them), I don't care.
