American rocker Slash has apologised to GUNS N' ROSES fans around the world for letting them down.

Speaking to the American newspaper the NEW YORK POST, Slash, whose new band Velvet Revolver topped the American album charts last week (16JUN04), admits he feel awful about the destruction of Guns N' Roses - and blames the split on eccentric singer Axl Rose.

Slash says, "I feel bad about all the people who got ripped off by Guns N' Roses.

"The fans were so f**king great. They embraced us, and a band couldn't have asked for more, and we let them down.

"Nobody involved with Guns wants to blame Axl, but there's no one else to blame. That's a tough one."
