an Appreciate of Slash
Slash's tattoo of slash
Why is Saul Hudson a rock god? Well, firstly because he had the good since to ditch the name 'Saul'. Seriously, a name like that is an impediment to the rockin'. Slash is a god to me because he wrote the best rock album in history, Appetite for Destruction. I am sure Izzy and Axl did some work, but the lion's share of Appetite is all Slash. How cool is that? What's better? Take a look at that pic above. Take a look at Slash's bicept. See that tattoo? That is a tattoo of fuckin' Slash. Slash has a fuckin' tattoo of Slash. Hot damn that is ballsy confidence.
I can't think of anyone else who could pull that off, and not look like a total ass. Maybe it's Saul's homage to the character he created. To quote Axl, from '88s Live at the Ritz
'half man, half beast. I'm not sure what it is but its weird and its pissed off and it calls itself Slash'.
Do you know what was rated by guitar magazine to be the number one riff of all time? Not Sunshine of your Love, nor any Zeppelin. Nope. The greatest riff of all time is 'Sweet Child o' Mine'. So what happened to G$R? They replaced Slash with this dude.
I bet this dude probably has a tattoo of himself on his arm, too. They say that Buckethead will only speak through a puppet he keeps on his hand. I am totally serious about that.
