Slash has shot down as false a former GUNS N’ ROSES manager’s claim that an argument over the guitarist’s collaboration with Michael Jackson is ultimately what fractured the relationship the ex-GN’R axeman and the band’s lead singer Axl Rose.
In a brand new interview with “Elliot In The Morning”, the morning radio talk show hosted by DJ Elliot Segal, Slash was asked if there is any truth to Goldstein‘s claims.
“You know what?! I’ve been hearing a lot about this particular interview from a lot of people that he really pissed off,” Slash replied (hear audio below). “And I’ve heard that. And I don’t think there’s any truth to that. I mean, obviously, the band stayed together for years after that whole thing. And it wasn’t a big deal at the time. And if it did piss anybody off, it was something that went away. So I don’t think it had anything to do with the original GUNS N’ ROSES‘ demise.”
Slash also explained that he doesn’t go out of his way to read any of Goldstein‘s interviews that have to do with GUNS N’ ROSES. “I don’t wanna read or hear that guy’s B.S., so I just avoid it,” he said. “That way I stay sane. [Laughs]”
