SLASH (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) spoke with John J. Moser of The Morning Call
recently about a number of topics including the overkilled topic of a possible Guns N' Roses reunion.
Slash says that even as a solo artist, he still is most comfortable with the band dynamic, which is why he built MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS around him.
"I've always put bands together; I'm either in one or putting one together. … In working with these guys, I'm really a band guy. So the only difference about me being in a band and what I'm doing now is that I actually lead this band. It's a sort of conscious knowledge between everybody," Slash says, laughing.
"But I still treat it as a group. It's just more directed by me than a lot of the bands that I've been in before, where it was more of a joint effort. But this bunch of guys is very happy just to have me sort of steer the ship, and they just kind of go along with it because we all want to sort of do the same thing, you know?"
On the current tour, Slash and Myles and The Conspirators play both Guns 'N Roses and Velvet Revolver songs.
Asked whether he would ever consider working again with his former group, he shot back.
"I hate answering that question. I think they probably told you I don't want to answer that question," he says. "The Guns thing is obvious, so I don't know what you want me to say."
