A Guns N’Roses reunion is only an apology away, according to guitarist Slash. The English-born musician expressed that he did not expect an apology from current Guns N’Roses frontman Axl Rose.

Slash and Rose have not spoken since the former’s departure in 1996. In addition to releasing solo material, he currently plays in Velvet Revolver. He’s set to play a forthcoming tour with Ozzy Osbourne.

“That would be a call I would be surprised to get,” he told the Los Angeles Daily, when asked what he would do if Rose apologized and asked for a reunion. “If that really happened, I would have to clean out my junk drawer, too, but I don’t see it happening. But if it did happen, I would do whatever it takes to at least have a conversation about it.”

Despite the current rift between the former bandmates, Slash did share some positive memories with the Daily. “When Guns N’ Roses got really big, we went from supporting Aerosmith to headlining stadiums on our own, so once it happened, it happened really fast,” Slash said. “But looking back, the struggle up was the best time. There’s just that hunger, and I enjoyed that. That sweaty, real intimate feel when just a select group of people love your band, and you’re building and touring. That’s rock and roll. I mean, when you get to the big-time, that’s great, but the scrappy climb to get to the top, that’s the part I still appreciate. We had such a good time, even if we didn’t know it at the time.”
