London Hudson, Slash’s 15-year old son, spoke in an interview with Appetite for Distortion and revealed the main reason he don’t play guitar and why he doesn’t want to live in “Slash’s shadow.” He said:
“Since I was little, especially with the Velvet Revolver stuff – because that was the most I toured with him, for the Velvet Revolver stuff – seeing that many people at the shows was kind of crazy, and how that all just worshipped.
Then going on the last GN’R tour, and seeing all those people who still like him for much older stuff. The GN’R stuff is when it really clicked, going on that tour.
But it never really hit me until this summer, where I was like, ‘I don’t want to live in his shadow’ – when I started playing in the band. That’s the main reason I don’t play guitar, or stringed instruments.
It was years back, for me it was around 5th or 6th grade. I played bass, and I played bass for a year then, and I was just getting sick of it. I was just bored, and I wanted to do something different. I was at Guitar Center with my Dad, and I started playing on the drum kit and really liked it.”
