Hailing from the unlikely surrounds of Hampstead, North London, substantially haired and equally big-hatted guitar legend Slash may just be the coolest man in rock ’n’ roll. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist didn’t just embody the hard-partying ‘80s with his notorious battles with addiction, but stamped his mark all over the decade with his fretwork on the albums Appetite for Destruction and Use Your Illusion I and II.

And he can still play, of that there is no doubt. Acrimonious splits with the equally legendary Axl Rose aside, his Velvet Revolver project reinvigorated a career that his previous post-‘Guns’ incarnation, Slash’s Snakepit, threatened to sully. His creative juices flowing once more, Revolver petered out leaving Saul Hudson to concentrate on a solo career and his second album, Apocalyptic Love, was released earlier this year. Whatever the material he draws upon for his carioca fans, however, as soon as he takes up position on the stage, axe in hand, Barra will feel the presence of greatness.
