According to TMZ, GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash was granted a temporary restraining order against a man he says tried to gain access to his property.
The man reportedly attempted to convince Slash‘s girlfriend he was a friend so that he could be allowed into the guitarist’s home during a Super Bowl party. When she denied him entry, the man allegedly became irate, and rang the doorbell multiple times and smashed the musician’s security camera. The same man apparently returned two weeks later during an invitation-only party, once again claiming to be Slash‘s friend. When he was turned away, he sat on his motorcycle in the parking lot revving its engine.
As previously reported, Slash‘s solo band, dubbed SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS, is rumored to be putting the finishing touches on a new studio album for a fall release.
The GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist has not officially confirmed that he is back in the studio working on the follow-up to 2014’s “World On Fire”, but it is believed that he and his bandmates have been laying down tracks since at least January.
The current GUNS trek — which features Slash and fellow original members Axl Rose and Duff McKagan — launched in April 2016 and has since grossed more than $400 million, with more European dates coming this summer.
GUNS N’ ROSES has been off the road since November when it completed the North American stadium and arena run leg of the “Not In This Lifetime” reunion tour with three shows in Los Angeles.
