Move over, Tom Kaulitz. Iconic Guns ’N Roses guitarist, MTV pioneer, and ’80s rock time capsule — seriously, dude does NOT age — Slash, of Velvet Revolver of late, will be presenting at the 2008 VMAs on Sunday, September 7th!
Check out a few of my favorite excerpts from Slash’s autobiography and two awesome VMA archival shots — Slash and Michael Jackson performing together at the 1995 VMAs, and Slash accepting the 1988 (!!!) VMA for Best New Artist with his “date,” porn star Traci Lords.
And below that, watch Slash in his full-on glory in a live performance of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” from way back in 1991.
