Half-man, half-beast with long curly black hair hiding most of his face. He usually wears a top hat, maybe to honor some foreign tribal cult. That strange creature played guitar
for the human zoo Guns N' Roses
, as well as Slash's Snakepit (of which the name transcribes well the zoo side of the band), and is now a part of Velvet Revolver
. He used to inject some (commonly-)brown thing (called heroin
) into his veins, using it as the door for another world - unfortunately no one can stay forever in that parallel world. He sometimes "accidentally" mixed the brown thing with other things (like cocaine
), provoking the bloodthirsty attacks of small monsters.
"And last, but definitely not least. In a world that he did not create, but he'd go through it as if it was his own makin'. Half-man, half-beast, I'm not sure what it is, but whatever it is, it's weird and it's pissed-off, and it calls himself Slash." - Axl Rose
to introduce Slash (1988).
