Back in the late ‘80s, when Guns N’ Roses burst onto the scene like an oxyacetylene torch, they might have instilled fear in the hearts of the parents of teenagers. Here were five guys who looked like they’d wandered away from a bike gang to form a rock 'n' roll band -- and cutting an iconic figure at the centre of it all was was young Saul Hudson, a.k.a. Slash. When G N’ R imploded amidst a tsunami of egos, drugs and debauchery, Slash looked forward with the band Velvet Revolver and his own solo records. And now Slash, a longtime horror-film fan, has become a horror-film producer. His first film is a creepy chiller called Nothing Left To Fear.
