Sonicnet spoke with Slash following news that he was turned away from the Guns N’ Roses show in Las Vegas on December 29. Slash said, “I’ve never actually seen Guns N’ Roses from that perspective, and I was curious. And I wanted to go in a supportive capacity as well. … I was trying to be discreet about it, but apparently Guns N’ Roses’ management found out and it was major pandemonium. It was like they sent out an all-points bulletin.” Sonicnet.com has since removed the article.
