Slash, the guitarist of Guns N’ Roses, has made it clear that he has no interest in seeing a biopic about the iconic hard rock band anytime soon.
In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Slash expressed his skepticism, saying:
“I just don’t see it happening anytime in the foreseeable future.”
He elaborated that while he can’t predict what might happen down the line, he finds it challenging to envision how such a movie could accurately depict the band’s story and the music scene’s reality. Finding suitable actors to represent the band members is just one aspect; he believes that most movies about musicians tend to be exaggerated and artificial, lacking a genuine feel. Slash mentioned he has seen many bad attempts at such biopics, and they make him uncomfortable.
While recently, Slash gained attention for contributing to the soundtrack of the movie Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig. He played guitar on a track featuring Mammoth WVH’s Wolfgang Van Halen.
Additionally, there was an online discussion between Guns N’ Roses bandmate Richard Fortus and Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt regarding guitar players who could perform with pop superstar Rihanna. Bettencourt mentioned that most guitar players he admires might lack the required musical diversity, and he specifically named Slash. However, Fortus later defended Slash on Instagram, stating:
“There is very little [Slash] couldn’t do on guitar.”
Despite Slash’s reservations about a Guns N’ Roses biopic, the guitarist remains focused on his music career. He continues to captivate audiences with his electrifying performances and continues to collaborate with various artists, showcasing his exceptional talent and versatility on the guitar.
Slash’s contributions to the music world have solidified his status as a legendary rock guitarist, and his influence can be felt throughout the industry. As he keeps exploring new musical avenues and participating in exciting projects, fans eagerly anticipate what this iconic musician will do next.
