* FakeAmerican: Most people have no clue he was born in England and didn't become a U.S. citizen until 1996. His accent being South Californian, and California being where he spent most of his life, probably has a lot to do with that. Even though Slash himself identifies as British, everyone assumes he is an American, and even people in the UK don't claim him as one of their own also identify him as American.

Born Saul Hudson on July 23, 1965 in Hampton, London, England. Considered to be one of the greatest guitarists in the world, Slash is best known as the lead guitarist in Music/GunsNRoses. After leaving the band in 1996 due to disagreements with Axl Rose, Slash played in the supergroup Velvet Revolver until it disbanded. Since then, he has released three solo albums: [[SelfTitledAlbum "Slash"]], in which he collaborated with a set of guest musicians, and "Apocalyptic Love" and "World on Fire", recorded with his band [[Music/AlterBridge Myles Kennedy]] & The Conspirators.

In late 2015, Slash and Axl Rose began talking to each other again, which they hadn't done since Slash left GNR. Soon after, it was announced that Slash and Axl had buried the hatchet and that Slash would rejoin Guns N Roses. After 23 years of absence, Slash was playing in GNR again, and the band soon embarked on the "Not in This Lifetime..." tour.

Not to be confused with SlashFic, although there is probably [[RuleThirtyFour some overlap]] somewhere.
