In a new interview with Kerrang Magazine, Slash, the guitarist of the rock band Guns N’ Roses, took fans back to the golden days he lived with the legendary artist Michael Jackson and recalled what they lived.
While he talks on the issue, Slash touched the greatness of Michael Jackson. When he was asked, “What was it like to hang out with him?”, Slash replied:
“Onstage, his whole professional thing was really where he clicked. When he wasn’t working, or in production or whatever, it was then you could see that he was sort of at the mercy of his own success.
“All the people he had around him, the tugging, and the yes people, you could tell that he knew 90% of them were full of shit. I felt sorry for him in that sense.
“I did a couple of shows with Michael in Tokyo and saw how this whole massive fucking thing worked, and he was the center of it. The only time I really felt like he was in any kind of comfort zone was when he was actually on-stage.
“Right after that, Guns came to town and did our shows and our success was massive, but it wasn’t as overwhelming as what Michael was going through. It was just an interesting light, looking at the two things and being careful about what you wished for.”
