    Yep...it seems like that's the roadblock. Axl versus Slash. No one seems to know exactly what the problem is...but they definitely hate each other.

    In this GN'R fan's opinion, I think Slash hates Axl for basically forcing him and the other guys to give Axl the rights to the Guns N' Roses name in 1991. Axl said he wouldn't tour to support the Use Your Illusion records unless he was given rights to the band's name.

    In turn, I think Axl hates Slash for more than one reason, the top one being that Axl believes Izzy left the band because of Slash's drug problems. Duff and Matt Sorum had alcohol and drug issues also, but Slash's were extreme, and Izzy couldn't be around it. The other reason is that Slash designed the GN'R logo (the guns facing in opposite directions with the roses intertwined around them), so no matter how much Axl would like to use the old band's logo, he can't because Slash holds the majority stake in it, and Slash still cashes in from sales of merchandise with the classic logo.

    From everything I've read it sounds like there's not enough money on the planet to repair the Axl and Slash rift.

    i just found a detailed interview with axl saying exactly what happened.
    i tend to believe him, because it makes sense and because he was asked in many ways and all his answers are consistent

    Dean's podcast is one of those shows I don't listen to enough, but whenever I do I'm glad I did. His interview with Rudy Sarzo was unexpectedly awesome. Same goes with the one he did with Ross Robinson.

    As far as the Axl vs Slash debate, Rolling Stone writer David Wild was on Adam Carolla's podcast a while ago discussing it and said Axl confided in him that the reason he won't do a proper reunion is because "Slash is evil."

    So, yeah, Axl is a fucking crazy person.

    A few years ago he also said Slash was a cancer.

    (While Slash's mom had just died of cancer a few days earlier.)
