Slash Reacts To Motley Crue’s “The Dirt” and Says Why He Wouldn’t Want To Do a G’n’R Film

Slash has said in a new interview that he really enjoyed Motley Crue’s recently released Netflix biopic “The Dirt”, which charts the band’s meteoric rise to fame in the 1980s. “I thought the Motley movie was great, ’cause I just saw it a couple of days ago,” the Guns n’ Roses guitarist said. “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.”

Despite the fact that he was full of praise for “The Dirt”, Slash — who started his own film production company nearly a decade ago — said that he has no interest in making a GN’R biopic. “I wouldn’t wanna do a Guns movie like that,” he said. “I couldn’t imagine trying to find somebody to play [laughs] the different members of the band. It just doesn’t even seem possible.”

A more likely scenario is a documentary film featuring material shot at the height of Guns n’ Roses’ success more than two and a half decades ago. “I think we have a lot of concert footage from the ’90s in the can — like, 24-7 footage from 1991 to 1994, of just every day on the road with Guns n’ Roses,” Slash said. “And it’s been sitting in a vault for years. And I would love for that to be edited at some point and put out. So we’ll see if that ever happens.”

Slash’s latest comments echo those he made several years ago when he told the Belfast Telegraph that he “would not like to see a Guns n’ Roses biopic.” He explained: “It’s really rare where you see actors portraying live musicians [well]. I don’t think rock and roll translates in the movies, I don’t think they really get the gritty vibe of what it’s like.”
