We don’t know you. The you that is reading this blog post. We’ve never met. But if you’re a human being – and let’s face it, even if you’re not – we do know one thing about you: [lastfm]Slash[/lastfm] is cooler than you.
Find out why after the jump.
[lastfm]Slash[/lastfm], of course, is the former [lastfm]Guns ‘n Roses[/lastfm] guitarist (if you didn’t know that, Slash is DEFINITELY cooler than you). Spinner followed him around for a day, and found out all sorts of cool facts. For instance…
He doesn’t act like a celebrity: “The guitarist has no entourage aside from his bodyguard/assistant, Junior, and despite not being thrilled by another day of press obligations — he’s already done this in Europe, Japan and Australia — he’s not treating it like a burden.”
He can make fun of himself: “When we’re in the ABC green room, [lastfm]Slash[/lastfm] attempts to pour some of the [vitamin] powder into a bottle of water but manages to spill much of the package all over a conference table. Without a beat, he says, ‘Hmm. Maybe we should snort it.'”
He prefers old school New York City: “Later, on our way to MTV, we get stuck in the Times Square traffic, watching tourists take pictures with someone in a Minnie Mouse costume. ‘I miss all the smut,’ he says nostalgically. ‘Where did it all go?'”
His shows rock: “‘As far as the spectacle of it, it’s really a rock ‘n’ roll gig,’ he says. ‘There’s no choreography to it. We’re just going to go out and do it. It’s very high energy and the band really kicks ass. All things considered, it’s a pretty damn good show.'”
It’s okay to admit it. Confess below: Why else is [lastfm]Slash[/lastfm] cooler than you?
