Slash Height

Guitars are like women. You'll never get them totally right.

British-American musician Saul Hudson aka Slash can be considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time. He is known as the lead guitarist of the American hard rock band Guns N' Roses.

About Slash's Real Height

Slash seemed to have a good height. His height is listed as either 5’9” or 5’10” all over the internet.

From what we have seen of Slash (like with a 6 feet tall Dave Grohl), we think he may have been close to 5'10" in his prime. Slash looked around an inch taller than Axl Rose who is 5'8½", which makes him 5'9½".

But now close to his 60s, Slash definitely looks a bit shorter than he used to.

The height of Slash in his prime was

5 ft 9 in (175 cm)

Here are some more Slash quotes.

Earning your destiny.

You can't wait around for destiny to give you what you think you deserve, you have to earn it, even if you think you've paid your dues.

What matters.

It's not so much about how good a player you are, its how cool you are.

On Rock n' roll.

Rock n' roll is about attitude and rebellion. It's supposed to be fun and spontaneous.

The name of Axl.

I once asked Axl why he left the 'E' off his name. He started crying and said he thought he'd spelled it right.

On risk.

Risk isn't a word in my vocabulary. It's my very existence.

On regrets.

I don't believe in having regrets.

On guitar.

Guitar is the best form of self-expression I know. Everything else, and I'm just sort of tripping around, trying to figure my way through life.

Why he became a musician?

I had no aspirations to be a musician, but I picked up a guitar for two seconds and haven't put it down since.

On money.

I'm not ridiculously wealthy, but I don't squander money either.

On restlessness.

Restlessness is a fickle catalyst; it can drive you to achieve or it can coax your demise, and sometimes the choice isn't yours.

On his destiny.

If it had been any different, if I had been born just one minute later, or been in the wrong pace at the right time or vice versa, the life that I've lived and come to love would not exist. And that is a situation that I would not want to consider in the slightest.

On life-changing events.

No one expects the rug to be yanked out from underneath them; life-changing events usually don’t announce themselves. While instinct and intuition can help provide some warning signs, they can do little to prepare you for the feeling of rootlessness that follows when fate flips your world upside down. Anger, confusion, sadness, and frustration are shaken up together inside you like a snow globe. It takes years for the emotional dust to settle as you do your best to see through the storm.

What you send out...

Once you’ve lived a little you will find that whatever you send out into the world comes back to you in one way or another. It may be today, tomorrow, or years from now, but it happens; usually when you least expect it, usually in a form that’s pretty different from the original. Those coincidental moments that change your life seem random at the time but I don’t think they are. At least that’s how it’s worked out in my life. And I know I’m not the only one.
