During an interview with the Daily Telegraph, guitarist Phil Collen completely dismissed the entire Guns N’ Roses reunion- and deemed it “really fucking lame”.
“Someone dies, someone loses an arm, someone gets cancer, we soldier on” says Collen. In regards to Guns N’ Roses, “if someone has a little barney backstage, they can’t deal with each other.”
Collen makes the argument that basically, just because Guns N’ Roses (Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan) have decided to step out on stage again, they’re allowed to make ridiculous requests- such as asking for 3 million dollars a show. However this doesn’t mean Collen hates the band by any means. He mentions “I love Guns N’ Roses, I think they’re really cool, I’d love to see Slash and Axl and Duff play together”.
