SLASH

THE GUITAR INTERVIEW
PHOTOGRAPHY ELEANOR JANE

The last few years have been some of the most eventful in Slash’s remarkable career. After decades of acrimony he finally took to the stage with Guns N’ Roses again, the guitar company with which he’s become synonymous went to the brink of oblivion and back – and finally, he closed in on the 10th anniversary of his solo project. With so much to talk about, we caught up with the guitarist to find out how it felt to step back onstage with GN’R, why The Conspirators keeps him grounded, what went wrong at Gibson, his newfound love of P-90 pickups and how somehow, he’s still a self-conscious guitar player…

Despite spending the last few years juggling his solo project with the small matter of the most hyped and successful rock ‘n’ roll reunion tour in history, he seems in a relaxed place, in no small part because of the balance his hectic schedule offers.

“Guns N’ Roses is just this big epic thing,” the 53-year-old explains. “The Conspirators is on a lower scale, which keeps you grounded for sure!”
