Slash Talks About His Trademark Top Hat!
In a brand new interview with South Africa’s Sunday Times, GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash spoke about his trademark black top hat. Asked how on earth it stays on his head when he rocks out onstage, Slash said: “I do not really know how I do it, but my hat just always stays on, yeah. I realize it has become a very recognizable look, yet it was never planned. My hat has also become something I can hide behind, as even though I love performing, I have never been good at looking into the eyes of the audience who are watching me.”
He continued: “Early in my career, I was always on the lookout for a cool hat to complete my stage wardrobe. In 1985, we were playing the Whisky a Go Go [in West Hollywood] and I went to Melrose Boulevard in Los Angeles, where I spotted this top hat in the window of a store called Retail . I went inside and checked it out and thought it looked really cool, so I got it. In the vintage shop right next door, called Leathers & Treasures, I got a concert belt that I cut up and put around the hat. That became my hat and I wore it that night for the first time at that gig. From that night on, my hat became something that I feel comfortable in. It has also become something I can hide behind, as even though I love performing, I have never been good at looking into the eyes of the audience who are watching me. So, my hat and my hair in my face has just been my thing ever since.”
Slash also talked about the touring lifestyle and the fact that most bands have to stay on the road almost non-stop, given revenue from other traditional channels is no longer sustainable.
