After bassist Duff MCKagan rejoined Rose and his current incarnation of the band for dates in South America earlier this year (14), 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 honour on behalf of the group.
