Rock and metal biopics have been pretty prevalent in recent years. From Elton John and Queen to Mötley Crüe turning The Dirt into a movie, it seems like every household name band is slowly but surely getting on. Well, except for Guns N' Roses. They have no interest in doing that right now.

According to Slash in an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, most biopics are just overblown versions of what actually happened and that "it's very rare that you see a [rock biopic] movie that actually feels genuine."

"I just don't see it happening anytime in the foreseeable future," he said. "I've just never been able to envision how you're gonna get it [right]. It’s one thing to try and find actors who represent the people in the band, but the other thing is with all the sort of theatrical depictions of life in the music scene and the everyday life of musicians and all that kind of stuff.

"It's always some fabricated, overexaggerated, fucking bullshit; it's very rare that you see a [rock biopic] movie that actually feels genuine. And so I don't even wanna be a part of all that. I just don't think that it would be done real justice. I've seen a lot of bad [biopics] and they freak me out. … I think the best ones are the ones that are a story that's almost fictional — that are based off of somebody."

And what better time to have this opinion than right now, anyway? Every actor and every writer is on strike right now anyway because apparently paying folks a livable wage is too fucking difficult. So you're safe for now Slash, and maybe forever – the WGA and SAG-AFTRA ain't backing down. Unless y'know, those greedy bastards get the rights to make some awful AI representation of y'all.
