Hey, it’s Rich Dale. We all know what a toll the rock and roll lifestyle can take on people, especially the artists. Some can’t handle it and some learn.
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash had something extra to celebrate over July 4th weekend – 15 years of sobriety!
His girlfriend Meegan Hodges marked the occasion on Instagram, writing “I am so very proud of you every day, but today I am so very extra proud of you”.
Slash admits he was “drinking myself to death” after GN’R broke up in the 90’s, leading to congestive heart failure in 2001. He first checked into rehab on July 3rd, 2006, and has been sober ever since.
Congratulations are definitely in order for that!
