In a recent interview with Kerrang Magazine, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash remembered the first time he met late Motorhead leader Lemmy Kilmister.
“My first real Lemmy experience actually happened at The Rainbow [in Los Angeles]. This was probably pre-Guns N’ Roses and I was there with a girlfriend. We’re sitting in this booth, and I’m not anybody, right?
“So I get up to take a p*ss and when I come back, Lemmy’s there. He’s on the outside seat, she’s on the inside, and I get on her other side. I’m so enamored that Lemmy is there that I’m completely oblivious to the fact that he’s chatting up my girlfriend.
“And she’s in this weird state, thinking, ‘Who the f*c* is this guy? And why aren’t you doing something about it?’ Lemmy finally realizes that he’s become the third wheel in this situation and it’s not going anywhere for him, so he gets up.
“She was like, ‘Hey, I didn’t do anything…’ And I said, ‘Do you know who that was?'”
