"I saw the Music Radar poll where Axl was voted the greatest lead singer of all time. I thought that was pretty cool. We may have had our differences, but it will never undermine the fact that Guns N’ Roses, when it was originally together, was one of the best rock bands. And Axl has always in my mind been one of the best frontmen and lyricists in rock and roll, period." Guitar legend Slash is full of praise for his former Guns N' Roses bandmate Axl Rose, despite their frosty relations. The singer beat Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant and John Lennon to claim the title in a recent MusicRadar.com poll.
