On March 12, the first nine 10-foot-tall guitar sculptures in the Gibson GuitarTown II exhibit were unveiled on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California, and Slash -- sans top hat -- was there to take it all in. The works on display were created by Shepard Fairey, Tristan Eaton, Free Humanity, Smog City and DeeKay, and they celebrated several rock acts, including Van Halen, Rage Against The Machine and Jane’s Addiction.
We hope no one out there was holding their breath for a reunion of the original Guns N' Roses lineup at next month's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, because according to Slash, it ain't gonna happen.
When Slash mentioned a couple days back that he would be contributing guitars to Steven Adler's new album, many of us were left wondering whether he meant a Steve Adler solo album or Adler's Appetite, his longtime post-GNR band.
With the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame looming — and hopes for a reunion higher than ever — it's nice that we've actually heard mostly positive stuff in the media from the current and former members of the band.
