Slash Upsets Guns N’ Roses Fans With His Biopic Comment

Slash recently revealed to Yahoo Entertainment that the one project he’ll likely pass on would be a biopic about Guns N’ Roses, which might upset any fan looking to enjoy the band’s history on theater screens.

The guitarist also reasoned how he wanted to steer clear from ‘fabricated’ movies and if there would be any possibility for a GN’R movie in the future, saying:

“I just don’t see it happening anytime in the foreseeable future. I’ve just never been able to envision how you’re going to get it [right]. It’s one thing to try and find actors who represent the people in the band, but the other thing is with all the sort of theatrical depictions of life in the music scene and the everyday life of musicians and all that kind of stuff.”

Even though several biopics have been made about musicians like ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ ‘Rocketman,’ and ‘The Dirt,’ Slash would prefer to keep Guns N’ Roses out of the lineup. He added:

“It’s always some fabricated, over-exaggerated, f*cking bullshit; it’s very rare that you see a [rock biopic] movie that actually feels genuine. And so I don’t even want to be a part of all that. I just don’t think that it would be done real justice. I’ve seen a lot of bad [biopics], and they freak me out. … I think the best ones are the ones that are a story that’s almost fictional — that are based off of somebody.”

Instead of a biopic, the guitarist has other projects that are on the line. Slash shared that one of the top-secret projects he’s been working on is a TV series with a UK production company about a book he optioned and a movie that revolves around a rock band.

He also recently worked with Demi Lovato on her hit song ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ for her upcoming album ‘Revamped,’ a collection of rock remakes of Lovato’s pop hits. Demi even shared her thoughts about their collaboration on Harper’s Bazaar, where she said:

“The rock version of Sorry Not Sorry sound so good; I’m so proud of it, and I actually am getting Slash on it, which is a huge honor, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve known him for years, and so when it came time, I just asked him to be a part of it, and he said ‘Yes,’ which was so dope.”
