SLASH Returns Guitar To Hard Rock Café

July 23, 2007

According to, VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash showed his gratitude at a recent Hard Rock dedication ceremony honouring his music — by returning a guitar he stole from the organization.

The ex-GUNS N' ROSES rocker's career was celebrated at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on July 14, and Slash surprised officials by handing back a long-lost instrument he took without asking years before.

He says, "The guitar has the best story. I stole that from the Hard Rock in Orlando (in Florida). It was in the dressing room. I didn't know what it was doing there, so I took it. I mean, it was in the dressing room and no one claimed it. So I've had it all these years and been playing it. But then I thought what better way to honor the Hard Rock for honoring me than to give it back, sort of."
