Slash (who was born Saul Hudson) made his name as the guitarist in Guns N' Roses, the band that saved rock 'n' roll in the late '80s. The original group made only a handful of records together, and Slash, along with other members, left by the mid-'90s for a solo career. In 2004, along with ex-GNR bandmates Duff Mckagen and Matt Sorum and Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland, Slash formed Velvet Revolver, and immediately scored a No. 1 album with 'Contraband.' The band is now on hiatus, and Slash has filled his time by releasing a solo records and working with a new band called the Conspirators, fronted by singer Myles Kennedy.
