Slash brings out big Guns (N Roses) at T In The Park

Rock hero Slash packed his early evening T In The Park 2011 set with Guns N Roses favourites as the skies opened for the weekend's first real rain.

‘Night Train’ and ‘Rocket Queen’ were two early, rain-soaked ‘Appetite For Destruction’ cuts that the guitar legend, singer Myles Kennedy (of Alter Bridge) and the band rocked the audience with.

Moving onto lesser-known but no less fantastic songs as the heavens opened, they then played ‘Starlight’ from Slash‘s solo release and ‘Slither’ by Guns side project Velvet Revolver.

With Myles doing a better job of Axl Rose’s duties than Axl Rose can now manage, it seemed the perfect time to send the crowd wild with ‘Sweet Child O Mine’, where the irony of the line “I’d hide and pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by” was lost on no one.
