Slashaholics Anonymous meet at Download

Slashaholics Not-So-Anonymous

The 2006 Download Festival – what better place for a group of Slashaholics to meet in meatspace? Left to right – Kathy, Ruth, Yours Truly and Klaira. We all met on the All Things Considered Slash forum, and this is the first time we’ve met in the flesh. We had a laugh looking at pictures of Slash, and generally getting to know each other. Then Klaira saw a particularly saucy picture of Slash and decided to lick my iPAQ. A good time was had by all, except possibly Michael, who had the usual fangirl gibberings multiplied by 4 and couldn’t keep up with all the head shaking and sighing.

Alas, Slash himself wasn’t at the Download Festival this year, despite rumours of a GNR reunion doing the rounds some time back. Hopefully he and the rest of VR will be back to rock our effin socks off at next year’s festival. Better start saving now for one of those RIP packages that includes access to the backstage area, so I can make a complete idiot of myself in front of The Lovely Mr Hudson…

Kathy, Klaira, Ruth… if you’re watching… I wonder if it tastes like a Caramac, too?
