When I hear things like that my first thought is that they aren't doing it right. But this is Slash after all, and I'm pretty sure he knows *cough* what he's doing. But what he says kind of makes sense:
"Nothing comes close to performing live. It is an out of body experience. Drugs can take you there for a second, and sex has its place, but it's organic and you can have it all the time, so it doesn't really compare."
He was actually referring to a specific outdoor Guns N Roses performance in Argentina where they were playing November Rain and it started pouring out.
When Britain's GQ Magazine asked if he would rather play that gig or have sex, Slash said:
"I'd do the show. I can have the best sex again anyway. But even if I couldn't, I'd still go for that show in Argentina. It was something that all musicians chase, the ultimate high."
And despite being offered hundreds of millions of dollars (yes, you read that right), a GNR reunion is not about to happen:
"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. So it's sad that something so good doesn't exist anymore, even though we are both alive and on the same planet. But that's all,"
That's a shame, they produced some very awesome rock tunes.
