    What's the big deal with Slash?

    And tell me honestly, if you heard this track on the radio, at least the first 20 seconds, before the vocals come in, would you think that this is a lost masterpiece of some previously unreleased Guns’N’Roses ballad? Great guitar lines are great guitar lines. And I think this is yet another...

    What's the big deal with Slash?

    His first true solo album had, on top of Lemmy, brilliant vocal contributions by Ian Astbury (The Cult), Ozzy, Chris Cornell, Kid Rock (not a joke - his is awesome), Iggy Pop, amongst others.

    What's the big deal with Slash?

    Which artists or bands (you can pick either one you want to focus on) do you feel had some of the greatest strings of classic album runs?

    What's the big deal with Slash?

    OP’s first post in almost a year, and first ever in the backstage. And no revisiting of the thread. Classy. And on a Sunday? Weak. I do my lazy laundry on Sunday - lazy laundry contains a lot of socks with no panache.

    When Your Sex Life Just Goes Round and Round...

    I’m just glad this thread isn’t at the crossroads of butt plugs, vaping, narcissism and outright lies. That shit was insufferable. I’ll take a Florida urination station all day every day over that. At least it’s an ethos. :laugh2:
