Slash was living with his parents in Los Angeles. That’s why he could monitor Los Angeles city’s ’80s music scene closer. He just gave an interview about the ’80s music scene in LA. He said he is not a fan of this 80’s Los Angeles music scene. Why slash does not like the ’80s Los Angeles music scene?
Who is Slash
Saul Hudson is a British-American musician, songwriter, and record producer. When I said Saul Hudson, you might not recognize him. The majority of people know him by his nickname Slash. He becomes popular with the Guns N Roses band as a lead guitarist of the Guns N Roses. He achieved worldwide success between the 1980s and 1990s. Slash has received critical acclaim and is known as one of the greatest guitarists in history.
Why does Slash not like the ’80s Los Angeles music scene?
While Slash was living in Los Angeles, he was five years old. In an interview, Guns N Roses guitarist said he had vivid memories at that time. Slash added, “I was kind of raised in the L.A. music scene, and it was great. I watched it go through these music trends in my short little lifetime up to that point. But what it turned into in the ’80s was something unrecognizable from an integrity point of view and a creative point of view.”
The negotiator started asking questions about the ’80s music scene in Los Angeles. Slash answered this question with those words; “fucking hated the whole scene.” He added, ” U.K bands had some credibility. However, when they started to play in Los Angeles it was worthless.” Slash continued, “just bullshit. And Guns N’ Roses were coming up in the midst of that.”
The interviewer was surprised with the Slash answers. That’s why the interviewer asked more questions about the 80’s music period. Which properties of the period created Slash’s thoughts. Slash said, “Everybody was fucking converting to the industry standard to get a record deal and get girls.” He added, ” As Guns N Roses we were the antithesis of all of that. That’s why I am proud to be part of the Guns and Roses.”
Guns N Roses band’s guitarist thinks about the Los Angeles music scene, “there was a huge scene going on in the ’60s and right through the ’70s and at least it was exciting in the 80s, at least there was a scene.”
Because of the similarity, other bands needed to disband. 80’s metal bands could not find a fan who wanted to purchase the album. However, this situation did not the same for the Guns N Roses band. Because of the orginal style, Guns N Roses would not dream of such a thing. He says, “camaraderie, and this passion for the kind of music that we did, and also this attitude of fuck everything else that’s going on and all the obstacles and all the bullshit in the music business in LA at that time.”
