Here’s a little dose of awesome to liven up your Friday:
Last night at the PalaSharp Arena in Milan, Italy, an unknown assailant came down from the rafters, got backstage, and tried to tackle Slash! During the solo in “Sweet Child O’ Mine” no less! (via Download Festival News) The WWE craziness starts around 1:05, but do watch to the end.
Further proof of Slash’s epic rock demeanor lies in his Facebook note after the show: “It was a rowdy crowd for sure but amazing. The guy who nailed me didn’t take me down but he busted my poor guitar. Ah well… it was a kick-ass rock show.” Aces, man.
Slash plays the Download Festival tonight. Play nice, britons.
