Perla Hudson licking Slash asshole in an hotel lobby. No stress! This was indeed one more very good reason to marry her. This picture, just like many others, can be found in Slash's official biography.
Michael Jackson was never affraid to think outside the box and always afforded the best musicians money can buy. And it happens that some of the very best lead guitarists are Heavy Metal guitarists.
Eddie Van Halen
Steve Stevens, Billy Idol guitarist.
Michael Jackson guitarist Jennifer Batten.
Slash of Guns N' Roses.
Orianthi, Alice Cooper guitarist
Another thing that is worth mentioning. Michael Jackson didn't instill a dress code for the badass Heavy Metal guitarists he employed. As you can see in the contrast in fashion style. Leather, studs, denin, flannel, big hair... Slash could even smoke cigarettes on the stage!
Guitar Hero Buckethead and one of his heroes, Michael Jackson.
Given some time, if Michael Jackson was alive today. The weird looking Buckethead (Guns N' Roses lead guitarist 2000-2004) would certainly have played for him. Plus, Buckethead is a lifelong Michael Jackson fan.
Here below is a rather silly video illustrating the correlation between Buckethead and Michael Jackson.
In an effort to dupe people into thinking that Slash is back. Guns N' Roses - better known as Axl Rose Band - boss Axl Rose probably ordered DJ Ashba to dress, act, and play guitar like Slash. Same hat, same clothes, same shoes, same guitar, same moves, same cigarette dangling...
Slash and Buckethead are two ex-Guns N' Roses lead guitar players, two weird names, two unique hats, and no free can of Dr. Pepper.
I explain the Dr. Pepper thing. In March 2008, Dr. Pepper, a major soft drink company, issued a public challenge to Axl Rose, stating that they would give a free can of soda to everyone in the country — except ex-GN’R members Slash and Buckethead — if the band’s long-delayed album ‘Chinese Democracy’ came out that year. When the album did in fact arrive later that fall, the company was unable to keep up with demand, resulting in a downed website, frustrated customers and even the threat of a lawsuit. Oh, and tons of publicity, which… was obviously the whole point.
