Slash On Drugs: 'It Was A Lot Of Fun'
Alongside the release of his second solo album "Apocalyptic Love", Slash appeared "Piers Morgan Tonight" for an in-depth interview about his past, which you can see in the player below. Through the 1990s Slash famously battled drug addiction. During the interview he was proud to say he's been sober for 7 years - but that doesn't mean his old lifestyle wasn't fun. "I don't have any regrets about any of it," Slash told Piers. "It was a lot of fun, and I think a lot of that whole sort of lifestyle - that freedom of doing anything you want to do and have a good time however you want to do it is all great. "But it catches up with you at some point. You don't see it coming. There's an invisible line that you cross." Slash went on to discuss why Guns N' Roses will never reform in its original line-up. The last time he spoke to Axl Rose was when he left the band in 1996, but Slash points out that he didn't exactly leave GN'R. Rather, he declined to join the "new" GN'R which Axl was forming. "I was given a contract to basically join his new band," he said. "It took about 24 hours before I decided this is the end of the line." Watch Slash discuss drugs and partying:
