Slash has revealed that the original line-up of Guns N' Roses were offered over $100million to reform.

Despite the bonanza money offer, the legendary guitarist – real name Saul Hudson – says he will never reunite with Axl Rose and co.

The 44-year-old told GQ Magazine: "Things were so abrasive by the time I left. I've never thought, 'Oh, wouldn't it be nice to get back together'. Because I know it wouldn't!"

He went on to describe Guns N Roses' 1993 tour as "an ongoing exercise in how we could bond the least", before adding: "One of the two of us will die before a reunion."

Asked what kind of figures they were offered to reunite, Slash said: "I can't remember exact numbers, but excessive. Seven, eight-digit kinds of things."

He went on to confirm the figure was more than $100million.

Despite ruling out the chances of ever reforming, Slash is tinged with sadness at the prospect of a world without the original Guns N' Roses line up.

"It's sad that something so good doesn't exist any more, even though we're both still alive and on the same planet,” he said.

"When we were on stage we were a real force together. But it got to a point off stage where it was impossible for us to even be in the same room together and create any music."
