Slash Mum On Chinese Democracy; Solo Record Will Involve Fergie

slash 0 Slash Mum On Chinese Democracy; Solo Record Will Involve FergieAs we trudged through Chinese Democracy’s dubious early sales reports and reactions to the record from various luminaries (Jimmy Iovine – likes it, Duff McKagan – sorta likes it; the Chinese government – not so much), we thought we’d check in with that other guy from Guns N’ Roses. With Velvet Revolver in limbo at the moment, Slash (known to his mother as Saul Hudson) is busy working on his solo record. And if his wife Perla Hudson (yes, they met back-stage at a GNR show) is to be believed, Slash’s latest endeavor will involve Ozzy Osborne, Fergie, “and everyone in the middle”—this according to an interview with rockerazzi.com (via nme.com). We’ll leave you to ponder who (or what) exactly falls “in the middle” of Ozzy and Fergie.

You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
