In a brand new interview with Digital Spy, former Guns n' Roses guitarist Slash was asked if he could ever see himself and the band's lead singer, Axl Rose, being on speaking terms again.

"It's not even something I like to dwell on", Slash replied. "I don't even like to make to make comments, because you end up with quotes that sometimes exacerbate the issue. It's really not at the forefront of my mind. I've got other things going on."

"I'm very, very proud of everything the band stood for and everything that's gone on with it. And the fact that there's still so much attention and interest in the band however many years after I was in it, I feel very humbled and honored by all that. But I don't spend my time thinking about what you guys are thinking about. You know? It's all whatever happens, happens, and in the meantime, I'm doing other stuff."

Regarding his favorite memories of his time in the band, Slash said: "I'm not going to sit here and get sentimental on you, but yeah, there's a lot of great memories for me."

"I could never have asked to do anything cooler than Guns n' Roses. From the early days in its inception, up to a certain point. I wouldn't have traded that; there was no better fucking place to be for myself personally. It was the kind of band that was so excessive that could only go so far."

"I'm really proud of the fact that actually all of us are still living!"
