Slash performing in 2008

His real name is Saul Hudson (born 23 July 1965), he is widely known known as the former lead guitarist of Guns N' Roses (1985–1996) and as the current lead guitarist of Velvet Revolver.

History of Guns N' Roses Formation
In 1984, both Slash and Axl Rose, with their own band opened for Christian metal band Stryper. After the show, they were introduced to one another by a friend. The two quickly became friends, months later, Slash and his friends, Steven Adler were invited to join with Axl Rose, Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin.That was the day Guns N' Roses was formed.

Guns N' Roses (1985–1996)
The band once had been tagged as the "Most Dangerous Band In The World".From the start, they've built their images by spent half of their advance on clothes, and the other half on alcohol and drugs. With 15 million copies sold in the United States, their album Appetite for Destruction is the second highest selling debut album of all time, behind Boston's debut. By 1988, Guns N' Roses scored its first #1 hit with Sweet Child o' Mine. At the same year, Guns N' Roses released G N' R Lies and it sold over 5 million copies.
In 1991, the band released Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II. They toured for 28-month long to promote their new albums. Upon completion of the tour, Slash was naturalized, becoming an American citizen.
Because of his long confrontation with Axl Rose, Slash officially departed from GNR in 1996. As Rose expressed a desire to pursue more progressive genres, Slash and McKagan fought to maintain their traditional sound as a punk/blues-based hard rock band.

Velvet Revolver (2002-present)
They released their first single, "Set Me Free" as part of the soundtrack for The Hulk. In June 2004, they released their first studio album, Contraband. The album went double platinum and re-established Slash as a mainstream performer. In July 2007, they released Libertad, a follow-up to their multi-platinum debut. Following their second studio album, Velvet Revolver also began a second tour. On March 20, 2008 during a glasgow gig, Weiland announced to their audience that it would be Velvet Revolver's final tour. On 1 April 2008, Scott Weiland officially split from Velvet Revolver.On September 30, 2008, Slash began recording demos for the upcoming album.Rumored singers for the project include Slash's close friends Lenny Kravitz, Sebastian Bach, Alice Cooper and Vince Neil as well as his past Guns N' Roses pals, Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan.
