Slash: 'Rose Is Misunderstood'

SLASH has come to the defence of his former GUNS N' ROSES bandmate AXL ROSE - insisting music industry peers should make more of an effort to "understand" the rocker, rather than just labelling him "difficult".
The guitarist quit the iconic band in 1996, after his relationship with the frontman deteriorated. They never patched up their friendship and Rose regularly blasts his former pal in the press.
But Slash is adamant the singer, who is known for being temperamental and a perfectionist, is misunderstood - because his "difficult" personality is one of his greatest assets.
He says, "You have to attempt to understand him as a human being and where he's coming from. I see things very black and white. That's just me. And that doesn't necessarily mean that that's right. And he sees things in a very colourful kind of way, and I can't really knock it, 'cause that's just him. So I try not to sit there and say derogatory things about his personality, because it's his personality that makes him so f**king great, and just difficult to deal with."

Slash, You were a great guitarist,,,,, and that,,,,,, no one can take that away from you......When you performed with MICHAEL JACKSON your handling of the guitar was very good.....Life must have been quite different after you and MICHAEL JACKSON didn't perform anymore....MICHAEL JACKSON was a genius, with so much talent,,,,how lucky for you that you got to play the guitar and be on stage with "THE KING OF POP".....
