Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash’s ex-wife Perla has confirmed the death of legendary film studio head and producer Robert Evans in a new social media post, and how Slash recorded a song for him after he had a heart attack. Slash recently discussed a ‘break’ with Guns N’ Roses.
“My mentor and dear friend Robert Evan’s has passed away at 89. I am absolutely heartbroken. He was a monumental part of my life. He mentored me for over 20 years, he was there during one of the hardest times of my life, He named my son, Cash. He was A TRUE LEGEND. I was by his side when he was writing his bestselling memoir, ‘The Kid Stays In The Picture.’ Read it or watch the documentary, it’s the best autobiography of all times. One of my favorite Robert stories is when he first met Slash.”
Slash dropped a ‘final’ Guns N’ Roses concert bombshell last week. Perla added, “He had no clue who this scruffy rocker I brought to his home was. I had to show him a video clip of Slash playing The Godfather theme live from a concert in 1993. When Robert had a heart attack in the late 90’s Slash recorded the track for me and we edited it to pictures and videos of Robert and all of us to cheer him up.
It worked, and Robert took it up a notch (as always) and put the song on the soundtrack of his documentary garnering Slash his first solo Grammy nomination that came from a place of love, friendship, and appreciation. My favorite Evan’s quote is, ‘there are 3 sides to every story, yours, mine and the truth and nobody is wrong’ so many memories, so much love. RIP Robert. I’ll always love you.” A massive Pearl Jam and Guns N’ Roses tour rumor was recently revealed.
