Star Sign:
Profession:

Slash is the current lead guitarist of Velvet Revolvers and the former lead guitarist of Guns & Roses. He is widely regarded as one of the best guitarists of all time.

Slash is the only member from the classic GnR lineup to actually keep going at the top level. He was, is and always will be the best. His magic with his guitar is on an insane level. Even when he is fooling around he creates something like “Sweet Child o’Mine”. He is mainly popular for his solos and awesome metal riffs. His early work with Guns n Roses made him really famous and his work was that good. Slash is so popular that while performing on the same stage as Michael Jackson, he was not overshadowed for a second. His guitar riffs of “Paradise City” and “Welcome to the Jungle” are regarded as two of the best metal riffs in history. If you are counting solos then slash is on Jimmy Hendrix level and might be a little better. His work on “Sweet Child o’Mine”, “November Rain” and “Estranged” is proof of the previous statement.

After the break up of Guns n Roses, the greatest hard rock band in the world faded away from the spotlight for over a decade. But Slash has been performing with his heavy metal supergroup Velvet Revolvers. Recently he released a solo album called Slash. In this album, he collaborated with legends and new stars like Ozzy Osborne, Myles Kennedy, and Adam Levine. He is currently touring with his new group “Slash, Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators”.
BTW, He is a Rock n Roll Hall of Fame member. He was inducted in 2012 along with Duff, Izzy, Matt, Adler, and Axl.
