Slash thinks rejoining Guns N' Roses would be ''fun''.

The 49-year-old rocker quit the classic band in 1996 due to tension with frontman Axl Rose, but he has now revealed the pair have settled their differences and admitted he thinks a reunion of the group's classic line-up would be something ''fans would love''.

When asked if he would want a reunion, he said: ''I got to be careful what I say there, I mean, if everybody wanted to do it and do it for the right reasons, I think the fans would love it. I think it might be fun at some point to try and do that. Never say never.''

However, the guitarist - who released his third studio album 'World on Fire' last year - said restoring the band's most popular line-up is not something he has spoken about with his former bandmates.

He continued: ''It's been one of those things that's been talked about by everybody but us for over the last 18, 19 years.''

The musician - whose real name is Saul Hudson - continued to say he began thinking about the idea because there is no longer bad blood with Axl.

Speaking to CBS News, he added: ''Well, we haven't really talked in a long time, but a lot of the tension that you were talking about has dissipated. We don't have all those issues anymore. It's not a lot of controversy. It's something that is more perpetuated by the media, more than anything.''
