So I took the plunge and bought Howard TV for the month. Howard TV is an On Demand channel which is very similar to Howard's now defunct E show except it's uncensored. So, clearly I bought the channel purely so I can look at Slash's ugly mug.
In the name of good journalism (or at least a new blog entry), I watched the Slash interview. Here is what I didn't know about Slash. Did You Know?
Slash's father is a British, Jewish Caucasian guy and his mother is African-American.
Slash's parents got a divorce when he was 9 years old; his mom's first boyfriend was David freaking Bowie. (His Mom designed Bowie's clothing and it "got romantic".)
Slash first got high when he was 12 by smoking cocaine with one of his mother's boyfriends.
Slash only learned chord charts for one artist: Ray Charles.
