SLASH - 1992 by Keith-Killer SLASH - 1992 by Keith-Killer
This is a photo I took of Slash in 1992. G'N'R were in Port Douglas for a week before their huge Australian concerts.

Slash is smiling as we were joking around as I took photos.

I was lucky enough to "hang" with Slash, Gilby and Dizzy for a few hours. After this impromptu jam session (which I got to sing knocking on heavens door with Slash!!!!) they came and sat at my table! It was cool, and Slash was/is actaully quite a shy guy.

* I took this with a $50 automatic 35mm camera. I found the photo ( a bit damaged) recently, and scanned it. When I get back to Australia again, I will look for the negative and try to get a better scan from that.

** Actually this was January 1993!! Doh!! I will change the photo soon

Ha, just noticed...he's playing a Strat for a change... I don't think I've ever seen him with one. ;) I wonder who's the guy behind him?

He was just using the local bar band's instruments. I am not sure who was behind him. It was not Gilby, he was there, but wearing a black t-shirt too.

Wonderful photo! I got to meet him myself today!!! It was amazing, he looks about the same. But he wore the top hat and the aviator sunglasses.

Cool!! I would love to meet him again.

VR canceled their tour to Japan :(

aww why did they cancel? Probably conflicting with his promotion of the book he has out now.

(it's a good book, no bullshit)

Hopefully they will make it up to the fans soon, and go there. Japan... wow, I'd love to go.

I'd love to photograph him in more detail, even if he's with his wife and kids... but preferably he is half naked and has a guitar, lol.

"but preferably he is half naked and has a guitar, lol."

Isn't he always like that?

They could not get the visas. Immigration are being a$$holes these days. VR were here in 2005 no problems. But I was so ill then I could not go. I still have the un-used ticket. Oh well... next time!

Touche, most of the time he is. Also: has cigarette in mouth. I bet his wife has to remind him: "Saul, take that out of your mouth and then you can kiss me" .

OMG visas, everyone's having problems with them. *sigh* Perhaps another time.

It was big thing when they were up in a small town like Port Douglas. The radio DJ announced it, but I did not beleive it, so I called the station and he said for sure he heard they would be at that club that night, so I went and check it out. I told the DJ if he was lying I would get my revenge on him! :)

It was cool. Gilby and Slash played pool with some other dudes etc.
