Well, Darn…

I know what you’re thinking. “Gosh, ANOTHER news piece about a rock biopic!?!” I totally understand where you’re coming from. In my opinion, while the ones that are already out are great, there’s starting to become too many. I personally don’t think we need anymore, but nevertheless, there are already several more in production such as ones for Prince, John Lennon, Ozzy Osbourne, and The Sex Pistols (unofficially).

But fear not, this is not a piece about yet another one being announced. In fact, quite the opposite…

During a recent interview with Blabbermouth, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash explained that he was a fan of ‘The Dirt’, but said it was impossible for a film of the same magnitude to be made about his band Guns N’ Roses, and his reasoning why actually makes a lot of sense. Here is what he had to say…

“I thought the Motley movie was great, ’cause I just saw it a couple of days ago. It really took me back to the early days in the ’80s and all the way through their career, because I just remember everything that happened along the way. And then it gave me some insights as to internal details that I wasn’t really aware of. I thought that came out great.”

“I wouldn’t wanna do a Guns movie like that. I couldn’t imagine trying to find somebody to play the different members of the band. It just doesn’t even seem possible.”

Well, I can only really speak for myself when I say that it’s a good thing this movie is being made, just because of the fatigue. But let me ask you this. Are you disappointed that we’re not getting a Guns N’ Roses biopic, at least not anytime soon? Are you happy about it? Do you even care?
