Slash’s Brother Reportedly Rips Idea of Classic Guns N’ Roses Reunion + Spews Axl Rose Insults
Slash and Axl Rose may have reportedly made nice, but the guitarist's brother apparently is not necessarily ready to let bygones be bygones. Albion "Ash" Hudson, the brother of Slash, reportedly posted a heated missive in which he dismisses the idea of a classic Guns N' Roses reunion, rips fans who consistently ask him about the possibility of it happening and has some less than flattering things to say about Axl Rose.
According to the post on Ash's private Facebook page (screen capture below), he feels that if Guns N' Roses fans truly enjoyed the music that the band made together, they should just move on. He adds, "To dream of the opportunity that you could see them all together to me is like saying, 'I love the guys who invented the door in my apartment.' I walk thru it all the time. I wish they would get back together and invent a new door. What's wrong with the door you have? It still works, you still use it."

You obsessed fans of guns n roses. F--k a reunion. If you love guns enjoy what they made and move on. To dream of the opportunity that you could see them all together to me is like saying “I love the guys who invented my door in my apartment”. I walk thru it all the time. I wish they would get back together and invent a new door. What’s wrong with the door you have? It still works. You still use it. And you f--king fanclub page host need to get your own life to spend all your time figuring out what slash is doing first.
And to act like you have an education degree of guns n roses and yet you have your own families but still you spend most of your day and life as an undercover fanboy serving up the gossip with an attitude like you have some power over other fanboys & girls is like if you never stopped wearing superman underoos and think as an adult your f--king superman. It’s all so dumb to me. Not sure if I’m making myself clear. But grow up. Get a life. If I get one more f--ker asking me will guns do a reunion tour I’m blocking them. Axl is a fat bastard and the reunion would only be a disappointment and an action that would result in criticism. Just sayin.
Ash also apparently followed up with another post, saying:
That’s just it! They were the best of all time no where to go from there. They captured lightning in a bottle. Nothing left to prove. It’s done. Are the stones the Stones you grew to love in the 70’s ? F--- No!. Now a circus act. You loved Axl when he was beautiful now he’s Fat Elvis. So move on people. Buy slash’s WOF [World on Fire] album.
Ash Hudson's apparent comments certainly won't make things any easier if the original Guns N' Roses members are contemplating a reunion. What's your take on a possible Guns N' Roses reunion? Should they do it or should they let the past be their lasting statement? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments section below.
