TMZ reports that Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash claims a man tried make his way into the guitarist’s home during a Super Bowl party by convincing Slash’s girlfriend he was a friend … and Slash is so concerned and scared he’s gone to court for a restraining order.
Slash claims when he was turned down by the woman, he rang the doorbell several times and got so angry he violently bashed the security camera.
Two weeks later, Slash says the guy showed up at an invitation-only party, claiming to be Slash’s friend. When he was turned away he sat on his motorcycle in the parking lot revving his engine.
It’s unclear why the guy wanted to get at Slash so badly, but it was enough to scare him into run to court.
The judge granted a temporary restraining order.
Blabbermouth reports that Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators is rumored to be putting the finishing touches on a new studio album for a fall release.
The Guns N’ Roses guitarist has not officially confirmed that he is back in the studio working on the follow-up to 2014’s World On Fire, but it is believed that he and his bandmates have been laying down tracks since at least January.
Rumors of a new Conspirators album were started last December when Slash’s girlfriend Meegan Hodges told a fan on Instagram that the guitarist was in the studio with singer Myles Kennedy recording the next Conspirators album. But Kennedy claimed in a radio interview a short time later that there were no concrete plans for him to reunite with Slash and work on new music, as he is focusing on a new solo album.
After a fan reached out to Meegan on Instagram asking her to clarify her previous comments following Kennedy’s remarks, she responded, “Maybe you should ask the band guys,” and followed it up with a smiley face.
