Slash Returns Stolen Guitar to Hard Rock Cafe

Filed under: Blogroll — admin @ 11:19 am

Officials at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas got quite the surprise during a recent ceremony honoring Velvet Revolver (and former Guns ‘N Roses) guitarist Slash. At the event on July 14, Slash presented the Hard Rock with a guitar he had taken from its Florida cafe years ago explaining, “I stole that from the Hard Rock in Orlando. It was in the dressing room. I didn’t know what it was doing there, so I took it. . . So I’ve had it all these years and been playing it.” What prompted him to finally ‘fess up? “I thought what better way to honor the Hard Rock for honoring me than to give it back, sort of,” Slash said. Coming clean didn’t affect why he was being honored in the first place – the permanent memorabilia case of all things Slash still stands at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas.Photo: Getty
