According to Blabbermouth.net, former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash told ABC News Radio that he was turned away at the door of Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, December 29th when he tried to enter the venue to see Axl Rose and his backing crew perform their second U.S. gig in eight years. A security guard reportedly confirmed Slash's account, blaming Rose for the exclusion. Axl allegedly told the venue he would walk offstage if he saw any of his former bandmates in the audience.
In related news, fans attending Saturday's show have reported that a professional film crew was filming the concert for possible release in the future. No word as to whether this would be released before or after the long awaited Chinese Democracy album. Though no new songs from this still-in-progress effort has officially been released, the revamped band have played several of them at this show, the New Year’s Eve show last night, and the pair of show the band played at the bigining of the year at House of Blues in Vegas and Rock In Rio 3. Song titles from songs played live off of Chinese Democracy include “Madagascar,” “Silkworms,” “The Blues,” and the title track.
