According to The Pulse Of Radio, Ash Hudson, brother of former GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash, has slammed the idea of a classic GUNS N’ ROSES reunion in a lengthy rant at his Facebook page, in which he also referred to GUNS singer Axl Rose as a “fat bastard.” Hudson wrote in part, “You obsessed fans of guns n roses. Fuck a reunion. If you love GUNS, enjoy what they made and move on.”
Hudson also wrote: “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 fucker 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’.”
Hudson later posted another comment in which he said, “They [GUNS] were the best of all time, nowhere to go from there. They captured lightning in a bottle. Nothing left to prove. It’s done. Are THE [ROLLING] STONES you grew to love in the ’70s? Fuck no! Now a circus act. You loved Axl when he was beautiful, now he’s Fat Elvis. So move on people. Buy Slash’s [‘World On Fire’] album.”
Slash recently revealed that he and Rose had repaired their estranged relationship after nearly 20 years, immediately leading to a storm of speculation about a possible reunion of the classic GUNS lineup.
Meanwhile, GUNS keyboardist Dizzy Reed, now the longest-running member of the band behind Rose, told Loudwire that the band is “looking at probably next year” for a new tour but there’s “nothing definite to report.”
As for the calls for a full-fledged reunion — which he would probably get to participate in, since he was around during the classic lineup’s first run — Reed said, “Whatever happens, happens.”
