Slash: Not your average Joe according to his biography


Slash Biography Review 

So like I just finished reading Slash's biography. Its a totally faciniating insight into what makes him tick and it serves to put the whole GNR I hate Axl rose thing in context.

Some great stories are shared. Most of them involve fucking, or drugs, combinations of the two and stories of how the band got together, had sex with anything that looked their way, sold a few albums and broke up.

The story that comes to mind right away is Slash and Izzy are having sex with a some girl (its always some girl). As he is not using a condom, Izzy pulls out at the apt timing.. and serves his load all over Slash's leg.

Slash's decision to become a musician is amusing for his nativity.

He found this professional bass player who agreed to teach him if he turned up with a guitar. So Slash gets from his beloved grandmother an acoustic guitar which only has one string on it. So he turns up for his first lesson with the guitar and his first lesson is thus the difference between a bass guitar and a 6 string...

Some interesting facts:

  • November Rain in its original form as a jam thing was over 18 minutes long.
  • You can melt down Oxy Contin and inject yourself with it.
  • Slash did the soundtrack for Beverly Hills Cop 3
  • Slash played on a Rod Stewart album.
