He’s one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time. The man underneath that iconic top hat and (with apologies to Angus Young) pretty much the source of inspiration behind every move I’ve ever busted out on my air guitar. Naturally, I was pretty excited to spend a few minutes with Slash.
Check out the video below for our full interview with the former lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses. We didn’t get a whole lot of time (not nearly enough to ask when he and Axl plan to make up and tour together), but we did manage to figure out where he stands on the BlackBerry v. iPhone debate, how he really feels about American Idol (and Adam Lambert), where he found the inspiration for his new album (stacked with guest vocalists like Iggy Pop, Ozzy Osbourne and Ian Astbury) and whether or not his mom had anything to do with that famous lid.
