Slash Net Worth
Slash net worth: Saul Hudson, more commonly known as the musician Slash, was born on July 23, 1965 in England. Slash has a net worth of $90 million. Slash is best known for being the lead guitarist of the band Guns N' Roses. Slash played with GNR from 1985 until 1996 and then reunited again with the band recently. Slash also co-founded Velvet Revolver with former bandmates and other rock stars. In August of 2009, Time Magazine named Slash #2 on their list of the top 10 Best Electric Guitar Players of All Time.
Slash was exposed to music at an early age. His mother designed costumes for David Bowie and his father created album covers for musicians such as Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. He moved from England to Los Angeles at an early age, and took music lessons as a child. In 1983 he formed a Motorhead tribute band, which broke up in 1984. Slash soon joined another band called Black Sheep, which played with a popular band Hollywood Rose. In 1984, Slash met Axl Rose and the two quickly became friends. A few months later Slash and Axl Rose teamed up with Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin to form the band Guns N' Roses. Between 1985 and 86 the band had several hits, and their album Appetite for Destruction sold over 28 million copies. In 1988, Guns N' Roses had their first #1 hit, "Sweet Child of Mine." After leaving the band in 1996, Slash began focusing on his solo career, as well as studio work for many successful artists, including Michael Jackson and Quentin Tarantio's soundtrack to Jackie Brown. In 2004 after reuniting with Stradlin, McKagan, and Matt Sorum, the super-group Velvet Revolver released their first album "Contraband." Slash continued to play with other artists in the studio and on tracks.
According to Forbes, Slash and Axl Rose earned $20 million a piece thanks to their "Not in this Lifetime" comeback tour. That number might be a low estimate if you believe a court filing made by Slash's ex-wife Perla as part of a divorce battle. On August 31, 2018, Perla's lawyer filed a document which claimed that Slash's 2017 income was $45 million.
