£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

It seems excessivebut that doesnt mean it didnt happen.The mass of black curls. The top hat. The cigarette dangling from pouty lips. These are the trademarks of one of the worlds greatest and most revered guitarists, a celebrity musician known by one name: Slash.Saul Slash Hudson was born in Hampstead to a Jewish father and a black American mother who created David Bowies look in The Man Who Fell to Earth. He was raised in Stoke until he was 11, when he and his mother moved to LA. Frequent visitors to the house were David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, Ronnie Wood and Iggy Pop.At this time Slash got into BMX bikes and would eventually turn professional, winning major awards and money, but at 15 his grandmother gave him his first guitar. Sessions with numerous local LA rock bands followed until a fateful meeting with singer W Axl Roseand the rest was rock history. Guns N Roses spent two years builiding their reputation before Appetite for Destruction was unleashed on an unsuspecting world.Chart success and global domination followed but with it came the inevitable fall addicted to heroin, booze and cigarettes the band imploded in a rift between Axl and Slash that is as deep today as ever. But with a new wife, kids and new band Velvet Revolver, Slash is back on track. As raucous and edgy as his music, Slash sets the record straight and tells the real story as only Slash can.
