Guns N’ Roses axeman Slash is often full of surprises, and he just dropped another reveal by confessing he’s not sure if he’s ever owned a 1987 copy. appetite for destruction.
Gold mine magazine recently published a interview with the famous guitarist. During their conversation, Carol Anne Szel’s interview asked Slash, “Do you still have the original Guns N’ Roses cover of Appetite on vinyl?
Slash responded candidly admitting that he doesn’t really “collect” anything related to their records.
“If you came to my house, you would have a hard time knowing that I am part of a group. Or at least any band you’ve heard of,” he explained before adding, “I don’t think I’ve ever owned the appetite for destruction registration. And even if it was, I didn’t live anywhere, so I wouldn’t have a place to put it! »
He also noted that once he – like many musicians – went through the “entire process” of creating, recording, mixing and mastering an album for release, he “moved to something else”. The only thing left to “look forward to at that time”, he concluded, “is to go out and play it”.
Far be it from us to disagree with him, but given the success and influence of their groundbreaking debut album, we can’t help but think we’d be a bit more nostalgic and sentimental if we were in its place.
As for Guns N’ Roses, they recently completed the European trek of their world tour (during which frontman Axl Rose dedicated their performances to the late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins).
Don’t worry, though, as they’ll resume in South America in September before heading to other parts of the world until early December.
