Slash not burning any GN'R bridges

Jane Stevenson

Legendary guitarist Slash really didn’t want to talk about the April 14 induction of the classic Guns N’ Roses lineup into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame while in Toronto Wednesday, growing increasingly uncomfortable at questions about the event.

But he was willing to say, at least, it was “an honour.”

Clearly, he has mixed emotions.

“Either it hasn’t hit me yet or maybe it’s been so long since I had anything to do with Guns N’ Roses that I just don’t really get it,” the former GNR guitarist told QMI Agency on Wednesday while chatting about his second solo album, Apocalyptic Love, due May 22.

“And we’re not playing. I would imagine that they asked us to play but I know that we’re not playing.”

Still, Slash, 46, said he’s definitely attending the event in Cleveland, despite no fondness for dressing up.

“It’s a formal, I hate formals,” he said.

The guitarist also expects former GNR drummer Steven Adler, with whom he recently played with on a ballad off Adler’s new band’s upcoming album, to be there too.

“I could be positive Steven will be there. Steven wouldn’t miss it,” said Slash.

He just couldn’t speak to the attendance of the rest of the GNR classic lineup, specifically GNR lead singer Axl Rose.

“I don’t know. I would assume so but we haven’t talked about it,” he said.

Slash is in Toronto for Canadian Music Week, running March 21-25, and will give an interview on Friday afternoon at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel ballroom to TV news couple John Roberts and Krya Phillips.

He’ll also perform what he’s calling the first warmup show of the year at the Phoenix on Friday night before a sold-out crowd to lead up to a May tour in the U.S. with a Canadian theatre trek expected in July.

“It’s actually a mirror of the show that we did in L.A. at the Roxy when we first started that 2010 tour,” said Slash. “As long as we’re tight you know? We had a couple of days rehearsal.”

And finally, he’s performing the Canadian national anthem at the Monster Energy Super Cross event at the Rogers Centre on Saturday night.

“I’ve done it before,” said Slash. “I did it here for a (Toronto) Blue Jays game in 2006 or ‘07. We did both (the Canadian and American national anthems) ‘cause it was the Blue Jays against Boston.”
