Slash Issues Interview Rules
It seems that Slash has finally had enough of being asked about Guns N' Roses. The NZ Herald (via Classic Rock) has revealed a list of seven rules that he issues to journalists before any interview, helping him avoid topics that have been dogging him for years:
  • Guns N' Roses is a topic that Slash can briefly touch on.
  • You can briefly discuss the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction but only to the extent of the honour of that.
  • You can't talk about the ceremony itself and Axl not showing up and their performance etc.
  • No questions about Axl whatsoever.
  • No questions about a possible Guns n'Roses reunion.
  • No on the road stories or historic infamous type stories based around Guns n'Roses.
  • There has to be a focus on what he's doing now and forthcoming events/plans. While it might seem authoritarian to some, the list is actually quite reasonable. Slash has made his stance clear on GN'R reunions, and probably feels that his current solo efforts are overshadowed by the never-ending Axl Rose questions. As a game, what rules would you set for other artists? Share your creative guidelines in the comments.
