Guns N' Roses' 1987 debut, Appetite For Destruction, is eighteen times platinum, has sold over twenty-eight million copies, and launched the career of modern Guitar God, Slash. Over the past twenty-five years, Slash's cool stage presence, gloriously unkempt hair, iconic top hat, and soulful guitar virtuosity has been the epitome of contemporary hard rock. Slash: An Intimate Portrait takes you beyond the glitz and mystique, to reveal the warmth, charm, and humility of one of popular music's most revered rockers.
In addition to his cherished work with GN'R, Slash's journey spans working with MICHAEL JACKSON, FERGIE, IGGY POP, LENNY KRAVITZ, the supergroup VELVET REVOLVER, and releasing two critically acclaimed solo albums. Robert Knight's photographs in Slash: An Intimate Portrait trace significant milestones over twenty years in Slash's career, showing him onstage, in the studio, and at home. Knight's talent for capturing the true essence of his subject is on full display: candid, dramatic, and often funny. These photos take us beyond the big hair, the big hat, and the huge guitar riffs to underscore the larger-than-life personality and genuine enthusiasm that have made Slash one of rock's most recognizable figures for more than three decades. With over one hundred arresting and never-before-published color and B&W photos, and warmly candid insights from Slash himself, this fascinating book frames a real and complete perspective of today's most iconic guitarist. Slash: An Intimate Portrait features an entertaining and insightful foreword by close friend and legend in his own right, ROLLING STONES' guitarist Ronnie Wood, and a witty and thoughtful preface from AEROSMITH's Joe Perry. The book also has revelatory text by noted rock scribe Richard Bienstock. Slash: An Intimate Portrait is a treat for guitar heads, rock buffs, and pop music fans. Plus, it will be released just in time to visually complement an upcoming special edition of Slash's highly regarded sophomore solo record, Apocalyptic Love.
