Slash is one of the most iconic figures of the eighties and nineties heavy metal scene.
If you ever wanted to really know more about Slash, today is the day. Universal Music Group has released a 90-minute documentary “Slash: Raised On The Sunset Strip” on Blu-ray and DVD presented by DirecTV and Guitar Center. Combining new and archival footage with personal anecdotes from Slash himself, as well as from many of his influences and colleagues. The DVD will include interviews with Dave Grohl, Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, Nikki Sixx, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler, Matt Sorum, Jerry Cantrell, Lemmy Kilmister, Dave Mustaine and Slash’s wife Perla Hudson and more reveal the stories of how it all came to be.
“Slash Raised On The Sunset Strip” covers his childhood, his discovery of music and his arrival on the Sunset Strip. The DVD will give viewers and fans intimate details of Slash’s time with Guns n’ Roses, Velvet Revolver and Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. I suspect the DVD was completed before.
