Slash - Slash Is 'Proud' Of Guns N' Roses

Slash is ''very proud'' of his time in Guns N' Roses.

Despite having success with Velvet Revolver and as a solo artist, the guitarist admits nothing quite compares to when his first band hit the big time in 1987 with their debut album 'Appetite For Destruction'.

Slash said: ''I'm very proud of what we did in that band, but it's nice to be recognised for something you've got going on right now.''

The 46-year-old musician includes songs from his time in both Velvet Revolver and Guns N' Roses in his solo sets and he enjoys the freedom he now he isn't in a group.

He said: ''I'm not a dictator, there are no egos - everybody has great ideas for the songs. Every band I've ever been in I tried to make it always just about the music, never about who was the star.''

Slash famously fell out with Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose in the 90s, and he, along with the other original members, left the hard rock group.

Axl refused to attend the classic line-up's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year insisting he felt disrespected by the organisation.

He issued a statement saying: ''Neither former members, label representatives nor the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame should imply whether directly, indirectly or by omission that I am included in any purported induction of Guns N' Roses.''
