Regular priceSale price
This Slash image, snapped by our dear friend Tony Mottram, captures the Guns N' Roses lead in his prime at Gibsons Night of 100 Guitars, Wembley Arena in 1994. Slash is the epitome of 80's and 90's rock and just as famous as his front man Axl Rose.
Slash was born in Hampstead, London and in his early years was brought up in Stoke-on-Trent before moving to LA to join his mother who worked there as a costume designer for the likes of David Bowie no less.
His early career saw him play bass but any early attempts at stardom did not materialise even with the early collaboration of Axl Rose, Duff Mckagen and Izzy Stradlin under the name Hollywood Rose.
After a short stint with Black Sheep, Slash was asked to join the newly formed Guns N' Roses in 1985. During 85 and 86 the band played famous nightclubs such as Whisky a Go Go and The Roxy and it was during this time that they wrote Welcome to The Jungle, Paradise City and Sweet Child Of Mine.
in 1987 there first album Appetite for Destruction was released and it became the biggest selling debut album of all time in the US. The band went on to become a global rock phenomenon and the soundtrack of a generation.
Slash went on to form supergroup Velvet Revolver and has undoubtedly become one of the most respected rock legends of all time.
We pay homage to the great man with Tony Mottrams wonderful image of Slash in full flow.
