Over at Squee Central, otherwise known as Guitar Pr0n, we’re helping our favourite leather-clad long-haired rock god celebrate his 41st birthday. LadyMercury, she of the astounding wit and way with words, says:
Tomorrow will be the day that a certain someone was born.
This certain someone is a Rock God of the highest calibre, and a riff-meister what rocked some of the best riffs on the planet.
Heâ€™s been in two of the Greatest Rock Bands EVER in his eventful life. Heâ€™s hailed by many to be one of the last great rock outlaws. His story has it all: from humble beginnings to rock excess, falling into hell and clawing back up, and finally emerging as a husband, father of two and all-round Rock Hero.
And he did all this with that big mop of hair he has.
…I think I gave it away, didnâ€™t I? Ah well.
So, from the girls at GuitarPr0n and the entire PigPog network, hereâ€™s wishing Mr. Saul â€œSlashâ€ Hudson a happy 41st birthday. May you continue to be the swearing, chain-smoking guitar hero what inspired our little corner on the Internet!
Birthday greetings from his fans at All Things Considered Slash!
Happy Birthday, Slash!
