No, they are fine now. Not best friends but they have been on good terms for a quite a few years now. When Sebastian was still married to Maria, Jon, his wife and Sebastian and his wife would "hang out" and even went to a concert together. Jon and the rest of Skid Row never had any problems.

Not according to Slash. Read the last chapter of his auto-biography. He claims "there isn't enough money in the world to ever work with Axl again".

I'm not saying Slash is completely innocent in this whole thing, but if you believe the majority of stories out there (which I do), you can't really blame the guy. The band would sit around the studio for hours waiting for Axl to show up during the Use Your Illusion recordings. He never would. The albums were recorded with Axl's vocals done separately. Axl having his own tour bus and dressing room away from the rest of the band (still does this).

I think the simple fact is, Axl changed. Before they broke big, he was a down to earth guy, hungry for success and the band was a gang that stuck together. After they blew up, Axl's ego went out of control, along with his behavior and regard toward everyone else, and he never came back.

axl and slash dont need to be like Richie and Jon.
They dont even have to speak.
They have to be onstage for 2 hours a night and if someone is giving you say 20m each then you will make it work.
Slashs solo stuff has been average. Slash needs Axl and Axl needs slash.

I think everyone just needs to let Axl have his inevitable Elvis style demise while Slash whores around the world playing the same old riffs over and over again.

Who cares? fuck em.

That's not the case for Slash. That's one of the things he hated about being in GNR.

Why is it such a pissing contest of relevancy? Like one, like both, like neither, who cares? Both bands have passionate fans.

Where in the world did you get those ridiculous numbers? Chinese Democracy hasn't even sold 3 million copies worldwide.
