According to Galvin Tan…
Slash is a living legend. He is the former lead guitarist of the rock band Gun N’ Roses and the song that got me hook to him during Guns N’ Roses days is no other than Sweet Child O’ Mine.
I’m not gonna tell you more about his life, you can read it up yourself on Wiki. However, I’m gonna share with you some video clips of Slash in action during the glory Guns N’ Roses days.
My favourite song from Guns N’ Roses is Sweet Child O’ Mine. Its also the song that got me hook to GNR and made me a fan. The next song you should listen to is Paradise City, also from GNR.
In March 2010, Slash embarks on a self-titled solo album, Slash and he will be performing live in Malaysia on August 5, 2010.
