to fancy the pants, top hat and guitar off Slash ?

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 00:33:55

and to have done so for about 20 years ?

You are not alone. Infact my hair mirrors his. grin

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 00:38:50

Oh dear nigel indeed. Have a word with yourself grin

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 00:39:00

I have been watching that video with him and Fergie, Beautiful Dangerous If you haven't seen it, watch it. All I can say is, she is one lucky girl.

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 00:39:46

The above is only to anyone else who fancies him. I wouldn't suggest anyone else watch it, it's quite disturbing !!

Pancakeflipper Fri 21-Jun-13 00:40:18


Talking of disturbing, dd's piano teacher's son is Slash in a tribute band. He was previously a violinist and that's what he looks like. Very odd to see him in his Slash persona.

Plus he's a decade younger than me whereas the real Slash is about a decade older.

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 00:54:05

oooh, you must be the same age as me then smile He's getting a bit old now but I absolutely definitely still would.

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 00:56:33

The persistant shirtlessness creeps me out, I don't know why.

Would you still knowing his real name is Saul Hudson and he's from Stoke?

Dh seems to think this makes a difference.

AudrinaAdare Fri 21-Jun-13 01:04:39

I like Slash. He is a proper rock star. I sometimes wonder if there should be some sort of officiating body to regulate them, like a Guild or something:

So tell me Mr Pretentious Poser, when was the last time you took hallucinogenic drugs or drank alcohol?


And when was the last time you used hair product?

This morning, Sir!

You're a disgrace to the profession, man - OUT! Come back tomorrow and hand your guitar in!

You couldn't kick Slash out for clean-living and use of hairspray although I am glad he is being sensible now.

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 01:08:08

Would you still knowing his real name is Saul Hudson and he's from Stoke?
i knew that anyway wink He could be called tinky winky from lala land. I would still fancy him

Me too. grin

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 01:19:32

especially for you, its my ipad lockscreen. I hope the link works !

GilmoursPillow Fri 21-Jun-13 05:35:20

All I can say is, she is one lucky girl.

Indeed. I am sitting in bed with a skimpy nightie like hers (but because my bedroom is to damned hot, not because I'm sexy), long stringy hair and smudged make-up and 8 extra dress sizes

Jaynebxl Fri 21-Jun-13 05:58:53

Ewww he makes Russell Brand look clean!

LadyBryan Fri 21-Jun-13 09:19:01


There's something very hot about a rock god grin

He's never done anything for me but then I think he looks like a relation of Cousin It from the Addams Family. grin

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 09:32:17

I take your point AKiss but... He's Slash.

I almost wet myself when forced to sit through Top Gear and clarkson said Slash was the star in a reasonably priced car. I did notice that, unusually, there were an awful lot of women on the show that night lol

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 09:33:51

Gilmoursgirl, i look just like fergie too. If she put on bout 5 stone ! I would probably have to drug him too haha

YADNBU smile Mr Hudson is the ultimate rock god wouldn't say no to Duff either

girlywhirly Fri 21-Jun-13 09:40:39

He looks a bit pale in that pool photo!

I think his hair must have looked like that after he had been driving that tiny car on Top Gear, when he took off the crash helmet they made him wear.

I quite like Slash and his music, and I am old (well 8 yrs older than him)

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 09:43:03

Orangegoldwife, the only one of the original line up i would turn down would be axl rose. I find him repulsive now and even in his 20s he drew a fine line between hypnotic and hideous. And the cycling shorts...

I quite liked the cycling shorts. blush
And I love your iPad lock screen.

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 09:46:58

Ace isnt it. It gives me a little shiver every time i look at it !

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Fri 21-Jun-13 09:49:02

That's a new hat.

His original one was stolen from the back of a taxi.


PoppyAmex Fri 21-Jun-13 09:50:44


I never liked bad boys, but had a thing for Slash.

I remember watching GnR in concert and not taking my eyes of him or his very sexy hands blush

He also used to move me to tears when the played the "Godfather" solo in concert.

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 09:51:00

He would definitely have to keep it on. Its iconic ;D

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 09:52:25

Maybe thats why axl was always jumping about. Cos all the girls were hypnotised by slash !

PoppyAmex Fri 21-Jun-13 09:54:00

"The only one of the original line up i would turn down would be axl rose."

God yes, he is not quite right - something really sleazy and creepy about him.

During a concert in Lisbon he slipped on a plastic water bottle and fell, so decided to pout and leave the stage in protest (the crowd had been encouraged by Soundgarden and Faith No More to throw plastic bottles to the stage an hour before).

Duffy just picked up the mike and sang the next song. Axl came back to the stage pretty sharpish after that.

orangeandemons Fri 21-Jun-13 09:54:26

Ooooooh that video outside the church (November rain?). In hat, jacket and jeans, and a fag embedded in his hair. It makes me go all trembly....

SparkyTGD Fri 21-Jun-13 09:58:59

grin Wooohoo, this is the thread for me!

I adored Slash in Guns n' Roses time, always my favourite.

Have you seen current Slash/Myles et al?, absolutely something for everyone there, Slash is a Rock God (obviously), Myles & Todd are pretty damn sexy and Frankie is cute for the younger crowd grin

SparkyTGD Fri 21-Jun-13 10:00:59

Don't remind me about Axl & those white cycling shorts ewwww!

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:01:10

Sparky, the rest of the band could be colin farrell, roger federer, brad pitt and bradley cooper. With slash onstage who notices anyone else ?

SparkyTGD Fri 21-Jun-13 10:02:31

Probably need to namechange after this though, if DP decides to find out my MN name, this is a sure giveaway! wink

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:03:26
OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:05:22

Ooh, todd kerns is hot ! Thankyou for bringing this matter to my attention !

Peanate Fri 21-Jun-13 10:06:04

I'm reading his autobiography at the moment - what a crazy life!

Despite the rampant promiscuity, copious STIs, and ridiculous drug and alcohol consumption - yep, he's still hot!

And Axl is a complete nutter.

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 10:06:13

Christ nigel, I gave in and clicked your links. What has been seen cannot be unseen! shock grin

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 10:09:11

Although ladies, I give you this.

Thank me later grin

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:09:24

My roommate at school and i were absolutely OBSESSED with GnR. Everyone else was listening to crappy poppy rubbish and we were headbanging away in our room. Embarassingly she used to have this blonde wig thing from a play she had done for drama, she used to put on the wig and play axl. I always got to be slash. Wth my tennis racquet.

Well, if anyone on here knows me ive outed myself now !

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:11:23
SparkyTGD Fri 21-Jun-13 10:13:56

Why did I click on that link! Pass the brain bleach!

To make us feel better, Anastasia grin

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 10:15:49

I feel I need to set up a charity donation fund to adequately clothe the poor little lamb.

<runs away from obsessed admiring fans> grin

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:16:13

Check out the other one though sparky. Trust me, you'll enjoy it.

I do a great Slash impression. I've even perfected the fag in my mouth and no visible face.

SparkyTGD Fri 21-Jun-13 10:16:58

ps I mean the 'Axl cycling shorts link'

OhDearNigel I knew you'd be convinced, Todd is smokin' hot!

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:18:01

No stuntgirl. Slash should not be clothed !

blush I liked Axl in his cycling shorts I try and block out what he looks like now and pretend he is still in his prime I think I will have to dig out some DVD's and have a morning of perving watching GnR smile

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:19:31

Now im thinking about getting my schoolfriend down for a sleepover, a bottle of Jack and the double dvd of use your illusion tour. And packing DH off for thr night...

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 10:21:04


I am not one to talk. Since seeing Slipknot last weekend I have been having, erm, interesting dreams involving one Joey Jordison. And I don't even fancy him!

Still better than the one involving Jeremy Clarkson blush

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:22:07

I must stop posting ! I came into town to do some paperwork and ive been in caffe nero for an hour perving doing nothing constructive at all

SparkyTGD Fri 21-Jun-13 10:22:18

Oooh, yes, good one!

My favourite GnR era Slash Paradise City Slash in shorts grin

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:23:09

Ewwwww clarkson. Horrors , unless your dream involved the reasonably priced car falling on him ?

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:23:53

Sparky, phwoarrrrrr

RinseAndRepeat Fri 21-Jun-13 10:24:05

YANBU I would be all over him given half a chance.

Imagine what those dexterous fingers could do...

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 10:25:01

grin at you getting your perve on in public!

Sadly not, it involved going for a drive, then a picnic by a lake, then, erm, other stuff. Stuff I wish I could bleach from my mind. Forever.

RinseAndRepeat Fri 21-Jun-13 10:25:07

Have you read his autobiography? It's pretty nuts. His wife sounds awesome actually. I would probably shag them both.

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 10:25:50

My partner is a guitarist and dextrous fingers have their advantages grin

SparkyTGD Fri 21-Jun-13 10:28:45

Re your ipad lockscreen, sorry to go on a Todd-tangent but this is what I want for a screensaver, although DP would be definitely not impressed wink

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 10:30:55

Is it a shared ipad sparky? Would so do it anyway

When we first started dating my boyfriend brought me a poster of Hetfield to put on my wall. It was then that I knew he was The One haha.

orangeandemons Fri 21-Jun-13 10:36:29

Just watched November rain.

Oh, the thrusting < whimper> and the leather chaps < drool>

I didn't know he was married sad

SignoraStronza Fri 21-Jun-13 10:39:31

No you are not BU! My first boyfriend had a mane like his and rocked the skinny jeans look (in the days when they were for metalheads only) and it's left an indelible impression. wink

I so would.

snuffaluffagus Fri 21-Jun-13 10:41:03
GilmoursPillow Fri 21-Jun-13 10:43:46

I think Slash still looks mighty fine. And in the shower <shiver>

Back in the day I would have taken either Axl or Slash. Not at the same time, obviously oh yes, absolutely at the same time

I saw GnR live 3 years running. Oh the memories....

GilmoursPillow Fri 21-Jun-13 10:50:01

I've just watched the godfather video snuffa linked to.

I'm getting all nostalgic now.

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 10:53:45

Would have been izzy and slash for me. Imagine what the two of them coul do with their hands (have not given this topic hours of considered thought, oh no)

Its a waste that he's married but his wife looks very cool. And the fact that she is not a twiglet bimbo is nice and bodes well for my Kidnap and Imprison Slash for ever as sex toy plan

GilmoursPillow Fri 21-Jun-13 11:00:51

I thought they spilt up a year or two ago? Or did they get back together? Or did he remarry?

(goes off to google)

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 11:02:16

He called it off and they renewed their vows

GilmoursPillow Fri 21-Jun-13 11:07:25

Ah, I'm out of date. I'm glad to hear that smile

slug Fri 21-Jun-13 11:53:25

I'm of the opinion there would always be a faint reek of stale cigarette smoke hovering around him.

x2boys Fri 21-Jun-13 12:09:28

I,M more of an axle girl myself think little white tight shorts but I would nt say no to slash either!

x2boys Fri 21-Jun-13 12:13:10

oh dear nigel I think I actually have a video [that's how old I am ] of use you illusion tour I went to see GNR whilst twenty weeks pregnant in the mosh pit as well!

CMOTDibbler Fri 21-Jun-13 12:20:46

Ooh, now mention of Slash and his luvverly leather trousers has me running over here. Yummmm.

DH used to have hair like that, though sadly no leather trews, but in my head he still wears an ankle length trench coat, smoke marlboro lights, and wields his zippo. And moshes to Faith No More.

Since I started running, I've had a playlist of my favourite tracks from my days dancing in Cardiff student union on metal night (normal outfit Faster Pusscat t shirt, thigh high boots and not much else), and some of the memories raise my pulse higher than the running demands grin

freddiefrog Fri 21-Jun-13 12:25:38


I've always had a massive crush on Slash

I was even shown a less than flattering pic of him and it didn't dent the lust.

Ive always had a thing for 80s, leather trousered rock gods, even Tom Cruise togged up as the bloke in Rock of Ages stirs the loins

CambridgeBlue Fri 21-Jun-13 12:56:40

What an unexpectedly pleasant way to spend my lunch hour - perving over a half naked rock God smile

I love Slash, he is the epitome of cool. His autobiography is a fantastic read and I was encouraged when I saw pics of his wife because in my head we look similar - small, dark, busty so if she ever gets bored of him I'll be next in line...

The description of Axl as both hideous and hypnotic is spot on. Less hypnotic these days though I think.

ParadiseChick Fri 21-Jun-13 13:04:45


I used to be an Axl lover but he's lost it big time. Slash has not.

SilverOldie Fri 21-Jun-13 13:22:16


ParadiseChick Fri 21-Jun-13 13:31:22

You really got all the way through the thread not knowing who it was about and not clicking any of the links to check?

CMOTDibbler Fri 21-Jun-13 16:12:37

Freddiefrog - I was incredibly disturbed to find myself attracted to Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages. Then I gave myself a talking to, and reminded myself that you see very little of actual TC in that, and that it was the hair and leather I was perving at.

FruminousBandersnatch Fri 21-Jun-13 16:31:49

Ew, Slash. What is he hiding under the hair, glasses and hat?

Jengnr Fri 21-Jun-13 17:05:56

I've met Slash!!!! And Duff!!!

And Axl Rose circa 1988 is the hottest man to ever walk the planet.

And I'd still bang the fuck out of him - I'm not as hot as I was 20 years ago either smile

PoppyAmex Fri 21-Jun-13 17:08:55

"Ew, Slash. What is he hiding under the hair, glasses and hat?"

A lovely pout and soulful eyes Fruminous grin

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 18:07:40

Jengnr, is he as good in real life ? Did you get to do anything naughty ? I think i would probably hyperventilate

OhDearNigel Fri 21-Jun-13 22:16:57

Watching Tokyo Dome 92. Dh has just gone to work and dd is asleep so i can freely enjoy the performance ;)

chubbychipmonk Sat 22-Jun-13 00:51:53

Love this thread! I LOVE GnR, been front row at their concert twice, had to queue all day both times ( DH not impressed!) but my God was so worth it!

Axl has been the love of my life since I was 14 although sadly he is now starting to look old! Despite the criticism tho of his voice, he's still got it!

Never thought Slash was hot but their current lead guitarist DJ Ashba literally makes me weak at the knees. The piercing blue eyes, the tattoos, the smile. . Feel like a 14 year old with a crush again!

chubbychipmonk Sat 22-Jun-13 00:55:50

Thank God I wasn't the only one who fancied Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages!

OhDearNigel Sat 22-Jun-13 01:05:40

I had never realised just how good looking Gilby Clarke was until tonight (always too busy looking at slash lol). He's certainly aged well

Jengnr Sun 23-Jun-13 19:24:54

Nigel, he was dead nice. I was a gibbering idiot! smile

Anyone who likes the rockstar look should google Criss Angel!

Thank me later! smile

Heartbrokenmum73 Sun 23-Jun-13 19:39:32

Slash is an absolute legend who I've hero-worshiped since the age of 15. And am not very proud to say that DD (11) has also declared her love for him and is apparently going to marry him when she's older!

Personally, I'm another one voting for Duff for the phwoar factor though. I so still would. It was him and Richie Sambora for me all the way in my teens. Ooooh and Phil Collen from Def Leppard - I would marry him now given the chance.

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Sun 23-Jun-13 19:40:53

YANBU at all. He's on my list too. I rather like to think I have an affinity with him as a fellow Stokie.

Heartbrokenmum73 Sun 23-Jun-13 19:45:50

Forgot to add Nuno Bettencourt (of Extreme) to that list. He'd still get it too!

Heartbrokenmum73 Sun 23-Jun-13 19:46:50

now very proud rather than not very proud. Obviously I AM proud that DD loves Slash now...

OhDearNigel Mon 24-Jun-13 02:27:05

Well it looks like there is some serious mn competition for poor Slash. Could we not have a campaign ?

OhDearNigel Mon 24-Jun-13 02:28:27

Ooooooooooooooo they should try and get him for a webchat. I would literally wet myself. If Prime Ministers can do it surely its good enough for the gorgeous one ?
