Although Axl Rose was the frontman of Guns N’ Roses (and a legend himself), Slash was the coolest! And yes, I have told Axl that in person...
In Slash’s words, on knowing what he wanted to be,
“My big awakening happened when I was fourteen. I'd been trying to get into this older girl's pants for a while, and she finally let me come over to her house. We hung out, smoked some pot and listened to Aerosmith. It hit me like a f***ing ton of bricks. I sat there listening to it over and over, and totally blew off this girl. I remember riding my bike back to my grandma's house knowing that my life had changed. Now I identified with something.”
