Ex-Guns N’ Roses manager Vicky Hamilton was asked in a new interview on the Guns N’ Roses podcast if she had spoken to Slash recently, and she responded by claiming that Slash and Duff aren’t allowed to talk to anyone from GNR’s past. Alternative Nation transcribed her comments.

“No. They are not allowed to talk to anyone from their past since they started this tour, and clearly I am part of the past.”

She was then asked if it was part of the gag order.

“Yeah, I believe so. I don’t know exactly what’s in the gag order, but I know they aren’t talking to anyone from the past.”

A co-host then asked if she had spoken to Izzy Stradlin recently.

“I have not, but I have friends who have spoken to Izzy.”

“I think he’s doing good, he doesn’t want to be found, so I’m not going to tell you where he is.”

“I hear he’s doing some new demos, so that will be interesting to hear.”

She also discussed seeing GNR on the Not In This Lifetime tour live.

“It was the first time I had seen them in an arena, and it was pretty amazing. They had all of the bells and whistles and all of that stuff. I mean clearly I would have liked it if they had Izzy and Steven in the band, but it was good.”

She added regarding Slash and Axl reuniting, “I didn’t really think it would happen, honestly.”

    She is omitting Slash might not be talking to her because she revealed the contents of a text he sent responding to her a few years back. It appears she was never a close and just a close work contact in the early days for a short period. Vicky doesn’t sound dedicated to protecting Izzy’s location, she is just not announcing it publicly. I bet if anyone really told her, they regret it.
    A most concerning and unprofessional comment is when she states as fact,”They are not allowed to talk to anyone from their past since they started this tour, and clearly I am part of the past.” And then when asked if it was part of the gag order, she changes to her personal belief,“Yeah, I believe so. I don’t know exactly what’s in the gag order, but I know they aren’t talking to anyone from the past.” The interviewers should have caught that.

  • Me my opinion Sche

    Well that kinda quick and pointless. I guess

    Who knows what is real in these situations? GNR, like many bands, was surrounded by a bunch of leeches.
