Speaking of Slash, just read this:
THE ROLLING STONES guitarist said he taught the ex-GUNS N' ROSES man guitar licks when London-born Slash was a child.
And now the favour is being returned too it seems, with Wood picking up tips from Slash. Speaking on his Absolute Classic Rock radio show, Wood said, "I remember him as a kid spying on me when I was playing guitar and I'd teach him little licks, and now I'm learning licks off him, it's really good."
"He's a great guy to play with and he's a great at interacting, a good weaver, you know, we can weave, like me and Bobby Womack do and me and Keith Richards do. Slash is such a great talent, and he plays in my solo band when I take it out, and he's on my new album as well."
Interesting, apart from the bit about Slash being born in London being wrong.
