September 10, 2018, 4 months ago
Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash was recently interviewed by Lyndsey Parker of Yahoo! Music. During their chat, which can be viewed below, Slash was asked whether GNR’s catalog has aged well in the current political climate, specifically the #MeToo era.
“I’ve never thought of that. It’s never crossed my mind,” answered Slash. “I mean, I think when the #MeToo thing really blew up, the thought crossed my mind of a bunch of musicians, not particular ones, but just musicians. But for the most part, as far as all the ones I know, it wasn’t like that. We didn’t have that particular [predatory] relationship with girls. It was a lot more the other way around, in some cases! Anyway, so some of the songs and all that were sort of sexist in their own way, but not to be taken that seriously. I don’t think they were malicious or anything.”
This Wednesday, September 12th, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators will perform on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! The band will perform songs on the show's outdoor stage in front of a standing-room-only crowd. The show airs at 11:35 PM.
