Slash Says A Guns N’ Roses Doco Is More Likely Than A Biopic

Between Bohemian Rhapsody, The Dirt, and the upcoming Rocketman, it seems that rock biopics have become a bit of a movie trend as of late. This has fed straight into anticipation for movies about a ton of older rock bands, as watching the origin story of a band unfold on the big screen brings a strong sense of nostalgia to fans.

But if you happen to be looking forward to a Guns N' Roses movie, don't get too excited just yet. Lead guitarist (and the heart and soul of the group), Slash, said a documentary about the band is more likely to happen, rather than a biopic.

"I thought the Motley movie [Netflix's The Dirt] was great," the guitarist said in a recent interview. "It really took me back to the early days in the '80s and all the way through their career, because I just remember everything that happened along the way. And then it gave me some insights as to internal details that I wasn't really aware of. But I thought that came out great."

As for a Guns N' Roses movie, he says he wouldn't want to do one surrounding the band's story the way The Dirt did about Motley Crue. "I wouldn't wanna do a Guns movie like that. I couldn't imagine trying to find somebody to play the different members of the band," said Slash.

"It just doesn't even seem possible."

According to the guitarist, there is a lot of on-the-road and backstage footage from the Guns N' Roses' tours between 1991-1994 that have been sitting in a vault, collecting dust.

"I would love for that to be edited at some point and put out. So we'll see if that ever happens".
