Guitarist Slash recently talked to Classic Rock magazine, where he mentioned that he was ”blown away” by Axl Rose’s performance with AC/DC on “Rock Or Bust” tour.
“I came out to a gig in London, and it was phenomenal. I was blown away, especially when he sang the Bon Scott stuff. That was a very proud moment, actually.”
Slash was asked further if he thinks it was weird that Axl Rose had been performing with another band other than Guns N’ Roses, replying:
“Not at all. It was AC/DC, man. The fact that he got asked to do that was very cool. And he worked his a*s off doing it, too. He really adhered to the whole AC/DC regimen and pulled it off.
“In the moment, when it first came up, it was a little jarring, I have to say. I was super-proud that he was doing it, but how that was gonna happen and go right into the Guns thing, I really didn’t know. But anyway, it worked out. So it wasn’t like a big deal.
“In all these years that we’ve been apart, he’s become super-f**king professional. And he’s never missed a beat during this whole time. So it’s been great. There has been a sort of synergy that’s been happening this last six years that we never had in our first incarnation.”
