Guns N’ Roses legendary guitarist Slash is quite popular among the fans. A picture has recently surfaced on social media which saw Axl Rose putting up a fan sign that read “Slash show some balls” as Slash continues to play the guitar on stage.
Guns N’ Roses are on South American Tour
Guns N’ Roses are currently on their South American Tour. A video clip recently surfaced the social media where Axl Rose and Slash were spotted performing on stage. While, Rose was singing and Slash playing his guitar, they accidentally bumped into each other in a wholesome moment as they continued their performance.
The former Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven recently talked about Guns N’ Roses icon Slash and Rolling Stones Icon, Keith Richards. It is noted that Alan Niven is one of the few people who don’t often get talked about. He played a major role in the breakthrough that Guns N’ Roses got. Niven had already made his name as the manager, songwriter, and producer of Great White when Tom Zutaut, Geffen A&R agent who had signed Guns in 1986, invited him to manage the band.
Asked about his initial impression of the band, Niven replied: “F***-ups. But that meant they weren’t your typical, calculating L.A. wannabes who had more ambition than talent. Y’know, throw a demo together, shop it, not get signed, all change, join other musicians. Every three months.
Keith Richards would also have a lot of say in the workings of Guns N’ Roses:
Niven stated: “Keith Richards told Slash he could never leave the band. Keith understood this to the marrow. He may have hated Sir Mick at certain points and thought the knighthood a betrayal of the blue-collar rock ‘n’ roll spirit, but he was Keith’s knight of the realm. So, f*** ya all.”
