Rocker Slash has ruled out any kind of reunion with former Guns N’ Roses bandmate Axl Rose, insisting he simply cannot picture a get together.

After bassist Duff McKagan rejoined Rose and his current incarnation of the band for dates in South America earlier this year, many fans were hoping for an original line-up reunion, but Slash insists that’s still unlikely.

He tells GuitarWorld.com, “People have been speculating about it for years, but I really have a hard time picturing it.

“There hasn’t been any communication along those lines between he (Rose) and I. I have a hard time picturing it, because I’m always focused on the next show. I’m one of those people who lives in the moment. I don’t look too far into the future and I don’t dwell too much on the past.”

Slash left the group in 1996 and he and Rose haven’t spoken since. Rose didn’t attend the group’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2012, leaving Slash, McKagan and original drummer Steven Adler to accept the honor on behalf of the group.
