Slash’s best friend, Marc Canter, has told the Daily Mail that the Guns n’ Roses reunion finally fell into place thanks to bassist Duff McKagan brokering a peace settlement between Slash and singer Axl Rose — but

only after Slash left his wife of 13 years, Perla Ferrar-Hudson. Canter explained, “Duff was a big part in getting them back together. He was working with Axl again and is a good middle man. There was no one

else who communicated with Slash and Axl. When Axl was venting about Slash, Duff was able to help him see things through Slash’s eyes.”
