Rock and Roll has its fair share of guitar icons, but none ruled the the late 1980s and the 1990s like Slash. He helped define a band (Guns N' Roses) that many believe kept hard rock alive through the grunge onslaught. Despite what you feel about Guns N' Roses, their music has held up better than many of their 80s hair band contemporaries. Slash's aggressive attack and talent on the guitar make his playing instantly recognizable. As does his unique image -- leather? check. Top hat? Check. Curly black mane covering the eyes? Check. Gibson Les Paul? Check. You know Slash when you see him. But do you know him when you hear him?
For this playlist I've selected tracks where Slash has lent his guitar playing talent as a session man. So once you've heard him in Guns N' Roses, Snakepit and Velvet Revolver this is the playlist for you.
