Slash is a very skilled guitarist and had a pretty cool stage name.
Slash is one of the most well-known guitar players around the world. He first gained fame playing with Guns n' Roses in the late 80s and early 90s and rode his extremely awesome appearance to future fame. He is credited with crafting the famous riff that became Sweet Child O' Mine, GnR's first #1 hit. A lot of speculation has been raised over why Slash chose his stage name. While researching for this article, Cracked reporter Chaunsey Pepperbottom interviewed the guitar legend himself and got some surprising answers. However, after our office were raided by no-good thieves, only this snippet of the conversation remains:
