Slash best known as the long-haired, top-hat- wearing guitarist for hugely successful rockers Guns N Roses has put his past into the pages of a new memoir titled Slash (HarperEntertainment).
But this time, its not the sex or drugs thats important its the facts.
Slash says, I would have never written the book if it werent to satiate Guns N Roses fans about the misinformation surrounding the band. I felt it necessary to get the story straight. Thats the purpose the rest of it is like, Who cares? I couldve gone on and on about sexual exploits and drugs, but that wouldve been self-indulgent. I dont consider myself to be so important.
And while Slashs partying past is legendary, theres more to the man than booze and babes.
He says, Theres this public perception that Im this neanderthal guitar player that does a lot of drugs and fþþþþ a lot of girls. People are surprised that theres more depth to me that Im pretty astute and can actually write.
Slash, co-written by Anthony Bozza, is on shelves now.
