Craig sent us a news flash from the UK. MTV2 just showed Snakepit 95
live doing "Lower", and then they interviewed SLASH. The program is
an hour long, and SLASH plays his favorite videos. The program was
recorded when SLASH was in the UK before Christmas. After the "Lower"
video, they played "SCOM". SLASH introduced himself as "SLASH from
SLASH's Snakepit". Nadina also posted SLASH's video selections and
1. Alice In Chains - "Them Bones"
2. Eminem - "The Real Slim Shady" - SLASH said this would surprise
people, and it's strange that he chose it, but Eminem is a bit strange.
3. Garbage - "Only Happy When It Rains" - SLASH said the singer is cute
but he doesn't think they are necessarily a band, and it's a great record.
4. Led Zeppelin - "Whole Lotta Love" - one of the bands that inspired SLASH.
5. Metallica - "Fade to Black" - one of SLASH's favorite songs, but he'd
never seen the video for it
6. Nirvana - "Smells Like Teen Spirit" - when this song came out, SLASH
didn't know who they were, but he liked the song. Nirvana defined the
7. Rolling Stones - "Love Is Strong" - SLASH referred to the Stones as
one of his mentors.
8. R.E.M. - "Everybody Hurts" - SLASH said this was good and heavy. It's
a song that made him sit down and listen to the whole thing, and he has
always loved it.
Then they played "WTTJ" as done live at the MTV Music Awards 1988. They
also played "November Rain". SLASH talked a little, and Nadine says,
"He's as sweet and hot as ever!" Thanks, Craig and Nadine!
A quick SLASH sighting on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" when Jay was poking
fun at Axl Rose's middle aged spread. Jay said he was at the Rock in Rio
show, and the years have not been kind to Axl. He showed a funny clip
with some really fat guy dressed as Axl and singing "SCOM". There were
clips of "You Could Be Mine" inserted here and there, and you could
clearly see SLASH and Duff. Very cool. Thanks to Brian for that
Jay Leno update.
Rolling Stone magazine wins the thumbs down prize of the month
for taking a gratuitous swipe at SLASH in their article on the new
GNR at Rock in Rio. The article says that Buckethead gave the crowd
most of it's "SLASH who? moments". First of all, this is uncalled for,
and secondly, we doubt it. Buckethead taking away SLASH memories? Get
in the ring and cancel our subscription!
If you get DirecTV, check for a movie called "L.A. Biker Babes" on the
Adult Network. George tells us this is a documentary of women, rock and
roll and Harley Davidsons. Throughout the show, the women are interviewed
about why they love Harley's and rock music. Gilby Clarke and Matt Sorum
are interviewed about Harley's. SLASH, Duff, Gilby and Matt are shown
jamming at a rehearsal. Vince Neil, Sammy Hagar, and the Doobie Brothers
are also interviewed. George tells us there are no sex scenes; just
clips of the women dancing nude to rock music. We asked SLASH about this,
and he had no memory of it at all. He said the clip was probably just put
in; and since he was not interviewed, he really couldn't say much about
it. As far as we know it is only on DirecTV and runs infrequently.
