SLASH's Brother Apologizes For Calling AXL ROSE 'Fat Bastard'

Ash Hudson, brother of former GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash (pictured), has apologized to the band’s lead singer Axl Rose for calling him a “fat bastard.”

In a lengthy rant at his Facebook page, Ash slammed the idea of a classic GUNS N’ ROSES reunion, writing in part, “You obsessed fans of GUNS N’ ROSES. Fuck a reunion. If you love GUNS, enjoy what they made and move on.”

Hudson also wrote: “It’s all so dumb to me. Not sure if I’m making myself clear. But grow up. Get a life. If I get one more fucker asking me, ‘Will GUNS do a reunion tour?’, I’m blocking them. Axl is a fat bastard and the reunion would only be a disappointment and an action that would result in criticism. Just sayin’.”

Hudson later posted another comment in which he said, “They [GUNS] were the best of all time, nowhere to go from there. They captured lightning in a bottle. Nothing left to prove. It’s done. Are THE [ROLLING] STONES you grew to love in the ’70s? Fuck no! Now a circus act. You loved Axl when he was beautiful, now he’s Fat Elvis. So move on people. Buy Slash‘s [‘World On Fire’] album.”

After his words were picked up by the media, Hudson once again took to his Facebook page and posted the following message:

“I apologize to Axl and his legions of fans who were offended by my post of yesterday.

“I am sorry I shot my mouth off. I know, or should know, better than to get involved in GN’R business.

“It has come to me attention that Axl is on a strict diet and losing weight.

“Unfortunately, my post was very offensive and upsetting to my brother, for which I apologize.

“To the rest of the world, I had one of these days when people kept asking me about a possible reunion and I had had enough… Again, my apologies.”

Slash recently revealed that he and Rose had repaired their estranged relationship after nearly 20 years, immediately leading to a storm of speculation about a possible reunion of the classic GUNS lineup.
