Slash Girlfriend Reveals Bizarre Keith Richards Photo


Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash’s girlfriend Meegan Hodges has revealed a bizarre photo of The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards looking quite disturbed looking at a large amount of alcohol and coke. Slash revealed what Keith Richards has ‘lost’ earlier this year.

Meegan wrote, “#coffeeslut #keithrichards #1972.”

Keith Richards made some interesting remarks about Guns N’ Roses in a 1988 Rolling Stone interview.

What do you think about Guns n’ Roses?

“Not much. I admire the fact that they’ve made it despite certain resistance from the radio biz. I admire their guts. But too much posing. Their look – it’s like there’s one out of this band, one looks like Jimmy, one looks like Ronnie. Too much copycat, too much posing for me. I haven’t listened to a whole album to be able to talk about the music.

I’m a very hard taskmaster. I know that everybody’s gonna say, ‘Oh, he’s putting everybody down.'”

Well, tell me what you like.

“I don’t like much. And I don’t want any of these guys to feel like ‘Oh, he’s an old fart, blah-blah-blah. But we’re up there, blah-blah-blah.’ I’m not interested in that. My main thing is ‘What are you trying to do, just be famous? Or have you got something to say?’ And if you do, are you forgoing it in order just to be famous?

I’ve always liked AC/DC, all right? I like U2; I really do. I think Bono, especially, has something special. INXS I’m quite interested in. I like Tracy Chapman. Ziggy Marley I find very interesting because he’s not just ‘the son of,’ He’s avoided being, I hate to say this, Julian. He’s taken from his father and built on it, but he’s not just ‘the son of Bob Marley.’ He’s got his own things to say, and he’s serious about it.”

Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash called his father and uncles rock and roll ‘junkies’ who led him to admire the work of guitarists like The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards in a new Guitar interview.

“I didn’t know it at the time, but that was where it all started for me,” he reflects. “My dad and his brothers were huge rock ’n’ roll junkies – the kind of kids that pulled a record out and felt the texture of the sleeve, put it on the turntable and analysed every song – serious stuff! I was raised in that… and it was like The Kinks, Gene Vincent, the Stones, some Beatles, The Who was the big one, and The Yardbirds and The Moody Blues.

“That was a very big part of my earliest memories, and then going in to London on the train and hanging out in the whole 60s beatnik scene that my dad was part of, crashing at their flats, doing all that!

“So rock ’n’ roll guitar for me began in Stoke, and that was just part of my upbringing, so when I picked up a guitar, that was one of the reasons I was never a big 80s-guitar-influenced guy, because what really touched me was Eric Clapton and Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Mick Taylor, Dave Davies… all those different guys.”
