Rock biopics are very much in vogue at the moment following the success of such movies as Rocketman, Bohemian Rhapsody and Elvis.

One famous band we probably won't see a depiction of is Guns N' Roses, however, as lead guitarist Slash believes many biopics are fabricated "bullsh*t".

“I just don't see it happening anytime in the foreseeable future," he told Yahoo.

“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, f---ing bulls---; 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.”

Guns N' Roses are one of the most popular bands of all time and were inducted into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

Their first album, Appetite for Destruction, is the eleventh best-selling album in history in the United States and is the best-selling debut album in history.

Members include Slash, Axl Rose, Dizzy Reed, Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer, Melissa Reese and Duff McKagan.
