Former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash has hit out at former bandmate Axl Rose for continuing to record and perform using the band's name.
Slash thinks the singer should have picked another name after the band split - but he harbours no ill feeling towards Rose.
The Velvet Revolver rocker says, "As far as what is happening with Guns N' Roses, when I quit the band, or when I left the organization, so to speak, and Axl was keeping the name, I sort of wished that he'd let the name go and done something on his own and kept the name sort of intact, but him using it and going out and doing his thing.
"It is what it is - I don't necessarily support it but I don't condemn it either. It's what he wanted to do."
