I do realise that my obsession with hairy blokes with guitars might not be your taste.
But surely you know who this geezer is?!

Luke from Spokane Washington, United States

I've never heard of him. But I do like the hat!

@Luke: He's better known as Slash

ursulakatariina from Greenock, United Kingdom

Nice shot and I do know who he is. I even have one (or two) CDs where he plays, but haven't been listening those for years...
There is nothing wrong in having an obsession with hairy blokes with guitars. :D

J.R. from Ginowan, Japan

The hat's cool, the chain doesn't do much for me. Can he sing?

27 Jul 2011 6:52am

@J.R.: Nope, at the moment he's teamed up with an amazing singer Myles Kennedy, who really, really, can sing

mayoline from Hoorn, Netherlands

No, I 've never heard of him, but I like your photo!

Great shot - there must be a hidden rocker in your soul!

Never heard of him but I do know that he has a double somewhere.

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

Stunning image. I love the hat that bears the artist ... You got a good angle shot! A hug, Adela

A cool cat in the hat. Don't know this dude but he looks awesome! Great stage moment you capture here.

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Judging by some of the people i saw walking up and into the festival you must have had some great photo opportunities. Forgot to mention that this is an excellent rock portrait too.

Julie Brown from Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

So that is his real name! A geezer already?

27 Jul 2011 1:41pm

@Julie Brown: Yep, Slash's real name is Saul Hudson

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

I can't believe how old Slash is looking these days - crazy! Guess I'll always remember him from my youth. LOL

Phil David Morris 2011 from Saskatoon, Toronto, Canada

He has a great fashion flair about him, as a lot of rockers seem to have. Beautifully
individual, a great icon portrait.

27 Jul 2011 2:35pm

Don from Spokane, United States

I like his style of playing. His appearance is good with that hair and the classy hat. Very nice shot.

27 Jul 2011 3:05pm

Fantastic capture of his style. Great portrait. Beautiful. :)

terrific. love the hat and the hair

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Thought you might have caught the sarcastic "Edge"...........oh well :-(

27 Jul 2011 7:00pm

@Curly: U2 only play to 100,000 plus audiences. High Voltage was only 35,000. The Edge I can put up with...Bono is in the same category as Axl Rose-completely up his own arse.

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom


27 Jul 2011 7:23pm

@Ted: Now, Ted, I know you are probably just having fun, but have you never heard a track called "Sweet Child o' mine" by AC/DC? Slash is the guitarist on that and many other fine tracks.

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

Never knew his real name, just slash to me.

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Fantastic capture! You are great at these shots. And, yes, the obsession is a little... weird. Maybe in another life? Parallel universes? ;)

28 Jul 2011 3:08am

@Bettina: I reckon that peoples musical tastes get "locked" when they are around 18-20. Metal is what I was listening to then. I also had hair that was longer than yours is today, and my son has beaten me on the length of hair stakes, and listens to his version of Metal, so maybe that explains it.

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

my music tends to have shorter hair I'm afraid...but the song was a memorable highlight played loud and live in a bar in Lido di Jesolo a few years back!

Hairy blokes with guitars are EXACTLY my taste :) Wonderful capture of this rock god. Can't believe no one knew who he was!!!

28 Jul 2011 11:18pm

acm from St. Louis, United States

Oh, but reading through the comments... you replied that "Sweet Child 'o' Mine" is AC/DC, and it's not....It's Guns 'n' Roses. :) But again, great picture.

28 Jul 2011 11:21pm

@acm: You are, of course exactly right, big oops on my part

Christine from Duns, United Kingdom
