Biography

Stoke, England (1981 – present)

Saul Hudson (born 23 July 1965, Stoke, England), better known by his stage name Slash, is a British-American musician. He is the former lead guitarist of the American hard rock band Guns N’ Roses, with whom he performed and recorded between 1985 and 1996. He later formed Slash’s Snakepit and co-founded Velvet Revolver with his former bandmates Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum; and his debut solo album, Slash , was released in April 2010. In 2011 he wrote and featured on Kick It Up A Notch, the end credit song for The Disney Channel Original Movie Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension. (Kick It Up a Notch Songfacts). He has written a self titled autobiography which was put to print in 2007.

Slash joined his first band, Tidus Sloan, in 1981. In 1983, he formed the band Road Crew—named for the Motörhead song “(We Are) The Road Crew”—with his childhood friend Steven Adler, who by then had learned to play drums. He placed an advertisement in a newspaper looking for a bassist, and received a response from Duff McKagan. They auditioned a number of singers, including one-time Black Flag vocalist Ron Reyes, and worked on material that included the main riff of what would become the Guns N’ Roses song “Rocket Queen.” Slash disbanded the group the following year due to them not being able to find a singer, as well as Adler’s lack of work ethic compared to himself and McKagan. He, along with Adler, then joined a local band known as Hollywood Rose, which featured singer Axl Rose and guitarist Izzy Stradlin. Following his time with Hollywood Rose, Slash played in a band called Black Sheep and unsuccessfully auditioned for Poison, a glam metal band that he would later openly deride.

    I've always liked the music of Guns N 'Roses, but Slash solo creativity for me fails. His songs are good on the technical side, but it seems to me to be devoid of spirit. This is not what I'm looking for in music.

    New record isn't great. I wish he'd changed it up with the singers. Gathering a roll call of 80s legends surely wouldn't be beyond his capabilities

    Его сольник 2010го заебись, Апокалиптик лав тоже ничего так. Вообще не понимаю, почему его чмырят. Из-за дерьмовости GnR и Аксла Роуза собственно?
