Slash (born July 23, 1965 as "Saul Hudson" in Hampstead, London, England) was the former lead guitarist of metal band Guns 'n Roses.

He was raised in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire until the age of 11 when his family moved to the United States. Having developed an interest in music and playing the guitar, he joined Guns 'n Roses.

He left the band in 1996 after disagreeing with Axl Rose over musical direction. He then formed a group called Slash's Snakepit, which he disbanded in July 2001, and is currently (as of October 2002) working on solo projects.
