Unarguably the biggest guitar hero of his generation, Slash rose to fame as the chain-smoking, top hat-wearing axeman in Guns N’ Roses before assembling a number of outfits with whom he continued to keep the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll alive. Born Saul Hudson in Hampstead, London in 1965, Slash moved to Los Angeles with his family aged five and went onto perform with various bands as a teenager including Tidus Sloan, Road Crew and Hollywood Rose. In 1985, he teamed up with Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan and childhood friend Steven Adler to form Guns N’ Roses, a rebellious group of hard rockers who went onto dominate the late 80s with their dark, dirty and unashamedly sleazy sound. Slash’s melodic guitar riffs proved to be integral to the band’s success, most notably on their breakthrough hit, “Welcome to the Jungle,” sole US number one single, “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” and epic power ballad “November Rain.” After the band embarked on a hiatus in 1993, Slash recorded It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere in 1995 with the side-project, Slash’s Snakepit, and frustrated by their inactivity, left GNR permanently in 1996. Slash then went old-school for his next venture, the blues-rock covers band, Slash’s Blues Ball, and three years later revived Slash’s Snakepit for a second album, Ain’t Life Grand, which was promoted via an extensive world tour with AC/DC. Slash then teamed up with Stone Temple Pilots’ frontman Scott Weiland and his former GNR bandmate McKagan to form supergroup Velvet Revolver, who topped the Billboard 200 with 2004 debut Contraband, and picked up a Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy before scoring a second Top 5 album with 2007’s Libertad. Having previously made guest appearances on records by Michael Jackson, Lenny Kravitz and Insane Clown Posse, Slash then added The Black Eyed Peas’ Fergie, Iggy Pop and Ozzy Osbourne to his list of collaborators on his 2008 eponymous solo debut. Slash also recruited one of its guest stars, Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy, to front a new permanent backing band, The Conspirators, for his 2012 follow-up Apocalyptic Love, and following a major world tour with Aerosmith, stuck with the same formula for World on Fire, which gave him a third consecutive US Top 10 album in 2014.
