Slash has owned this black top hat for over 15 years and it’s traveled around the world with him. “It’s at the point where I only wear that particular hat to special engagements like photo shoots and the Grammys, etc.” Slash notes. “I don’t take it on the road.” It was at the Grammys where Velvet Revolver “Best Hard Rock Performance” for their #1 single “Slither,” and performed The Beatles song “Across The Universe” along with an all-star lineup of vocalists.
“All things considered,” Slash said, “it was such a blown-out-of-proportion, wacky scenario. I’m still getting reports from all over the world that someone’s got the hat. I’m just glad to have it back and we’ll see what the cops come up with as far as who stole it.” He continues: “It was a trip to go sit in the little room at the police station and they came in with a box and opened it up. I saw it and said, ‘Yeah, that’s it’.”
Velvet Revolver will launch their headlining North American “Electric Wonderland Show” arena tour March 22 in Montreal.
