According to TMZ.com:
Speculation has been rumbling around the net and elsewhere that Slash would join his former bandmate Axl Rose for all or part of the "new" Guns 'N Roses' show in New York City last month. Slash says not only was there no chance of him playing with Axl then or anytime soon, but he doesn't even expect a call from the corn-rowed Rose. Says Slash:
"I know he would never call me. I've actually sent him Christmas cards, just to be cordial, but he never returns anything."
No return Christmas card? What a grinch. I'm sure he got that lawsuit Slash (and Duff McKagan) sent his way, as Axl did return the favor with a filing of his own.
Besides actually playing a couple gigs, albeit late as usual for at least one, and getting into a "fight" with designer Tommy Hilfiger, Axl hasn't done much to gain headlines for his music lately. But, apparently, Rose is still a enough of a rock star to be seen outside Kabaret's Prophecy in London wearing a very shiny suit and hanging with a long-legged mystery blonde the other night.
