Slash Says Axl Rose Is The Only Singer Affected Him In An Emotional Level

Slash, a legendary member of Guns N’ Roses, recently opened up to Revolver about how Axl Rose’s voice was the only one whose emotional impact he felt upon first hearing it.

Slash began his musical career playing guitar in small bands before joining one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. He initially joined Tidus Sloan in 1981, then in 1983, he and Steven Adler started the band Road Crew. However, after a year, he ended the band because the band’s singers weren’t satisfied. After getting to know Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin, Slash and Adler joined their band Hollywood Rose, which subsequently evolved into Guns N’ Roses.

When the band first started out, they became famous for the songs “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Sweet Child o’ Mine,” and “Paradise City.” After two years of formation, they put out their debut record, “Appetite for Destruction,” which went on to sell more than 28 million copies globally.

Even though Slash played in various bands, including his solo endeavor “Slash’s Snakepit,” he considered Axl Rose’s voice to be particularly exceptional. In a recent interview, he claimed that every vocalist he had worked with before Axl “sucked,” and that hearing his voice had a “emotional” and “energetic” impact on him. He then learned that Axl felt a link between the voice, the words, and the music.

Here is what Slash stated about hearing Axl’s voice for the first time: “I worked with different singers on and off for a while. When I met Axl, and we started jamming together, he was the only singer that ever brought an emotional content to it that affected me on an emotional level, on an energy level. Like a song, all of a sudden went to a whole new level, and I felt it. That’s when I realized where music and vocals really meet. Because prior to that, everybody I worked with sucked. I’ve had no use for it, and I would just play instrumentally but, that’s when I first really arrived at that poignant feeling that you get when things connect on a lyrical, vocal, and music level.”
