Loudwire Assembles List of Musicians With the Greatest Hair

Slash made a list put together by Loudwire of musicians with the greatest hair. You can check out the full list here.

Unfortunately as people age so does their hair. Slash’s hair has thinned out a lot in his elder years, but he’s still got a good head of hair.

Slash also discussed recently what Guns N’ Roses did to salvage the band in the mid 90’s before he quit.

He said the following

“Right before I left in 1996, I guess, Guns N’ Roses were rehearsing at this place called The Complex in Santa Monica, California, and Zakk came down.

“I’ve always been buddies with Zakk, but in the certain context of Guns N’ Roses, it was some weird kind of thing.

We jammed for a little bit and then – not because of Zakk, but it just wasn’t working. And pretty soon after, I was gone.”

Slash admitted that Zakk Wyle was one of Guns N’ Roses’ desperate moves:

“Well, you know, I think it was one of those desperate moves at the time when something needed to happen.

It was just a crazy idea that happened. I think it would have been a little bit over the top if Zakk and myself were out there… Cool nonetheless.”
