Slash Has Some Harsh Words for Izzy Stradlin Circa 1995!
A poster on the MYGNRFORUM’s uploaded an interview with Slash and Eddie Van Halen from 1995. In the interview Slash talks about Izzy Stradlin and Gilby Clarke. Regarding Izzy he had some harsh words saying “The only reason Guns N’ Roses had two guitars were because Izzy and Axl came as a package deal…..And Izzy and I never had a great relationship. I played what i played on my side of the stage, Izzy played on his. Izzy couldn’t really play guitar anyways – he’s a great songwriter” What’s weird is that Izzy and Slash jammed together at the last Snakepit show in 1995 in Chicago. Izzy even briefly returned for a few weeks in April 1995 to help write songs for a new Guns N’ Roses album.
