Slash has claimed he turned down millions to reunite with Guns N' Roses.
The guitarist told GQ magazine that there were "seven, eight digit" sums of money being offered for him to rejoin Axl Rose, who is fronting the current incarnation of the band, but he is not interested.
Slash said: "I can't remember exact numbers, but it's excessive - Oh, you know, seven, eight digit kinds of things."
He added: "I am a pretty realistic kind of person, and don't expend energy worrying, 'What if?'. If I hear great music we did together, I respect it for what it was and appreciate it. But I'm not like everyone else around the band who wants to somehow try to recreate it because there's so much money to be made."
Slash left Guns N' Roses in 1996.
Axl Rose's latest band line-up recently completed a tour of Asia, and are currently on tour in Canada.
