Slash to receive star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

  • Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash is to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next month.

    The musician is the first member of the rock band to receive the honor.

    Slash was the lead guitarist of Guns N' Roses from 1985 to 1996.

    He left the group following a feud with lead singer Axl Rose, who is the only original member still with the band.

    Slash has since performed and recorded with side group Slash's Snakepit and supergroup Velvet Revolver. He has also released solo material.
