Slash (Guns N' Roses) plays pinball too

If we say the word (the name) Slash, probably the great former guitarist of the American Guns N' Roses comes to everyone's mind.

 

The British Slash (Saul Hudson) gained wide renown with not only his impressive music, but his legendary love of pinball too, as the songwriter has a reputation for being a serious pinball fanatic and collector.

He met the world of pinball just in the early 90s (as an adult), and soon took part in the initial design works of Data East's Guns N' Roses pinball machine (1994). One of the interesting features of this pin is the band's unreleased song Ain't Goin' Down, which can be heard only on this machine.

He also provides the music (Speed Parade) performed by his own group Slash's Snakepit for Viper Night Drivin' (released by Sega in 1998).

Slash's Snakepit's another melody Be the Ball is definitely about his enthusiasm for pinballs and playing the game.

Btw, his first machine at home was The Addams Family, and other main favorites of his are Funhouse, Party Zone and Jurassic Park. With the exception of the last one you can try all these pin tables (along with GnR) at our gallery.
