    I’d say he’s doing well for a guy who was given a few weeks to live.

    I like slash. I'm not a fanatic, but I like his playing. Did he change the face of electric guitar like Hendrix or Van Halen? No, but I don't get the hate. Happy Birthday Saul.

    He is kicking out some awesome tones and tunes in recent years.
    I love me some Slash, although I was less of a fan during GNR.....almost entirely DUE to GNR....just not my cup o tea, call me old fashioned if you must...but...
    Happy Birthday Slash!!!!
    :bday::bday::bday: To You!!!

    First guitarist I tried to emulate. And therefore, a huge influence.

    And...2 bars, and you know it's him. Unique tone, phrasing, touch and note choice. How many are there out there that are that recognizable ?

    I don't think he's one of the 'most hated'. I've never met ANYONE who hates Slash.
    That being said, I doubt I would have ever picked up a guitar if it weren't for Slash. Listening to Appetite, and Use Your Illusions back in the day as a kid was very inspiring. Obscure GnR songs like Get in the Ring, Locomotive, and Coma were so good yet you never heard them on the radio like other GnR songs. This made me realize how many great songs they had in their whole catalog of music.

    It’s just preconceived internet hate that I have read for longer than I care to remember, same goes for Zach Wild, I like them both, and wish I had half their skills,
    Carry on! Mitch

    I met Slash once and he was awesome. It was back stage after a show towards the end of the tour and he was just hanging out, noodling on some guitars, and he asked me if I wanted to jam out, so I picked up an old beat up Les Paul and we exchanged a few licks. He was quite impressed. Afterwards, since it was the end of the tour and he didn't need it anymore, he said I could have the guitar. I thanked him, and exchanged numbers, and we've been friends ever since. Then I woke up, and realized this never happened.
