If you're a SuperSlashfan, maybe you already know this. To you others, did you know that Slash witnessed two celebrity - overdoses? Number one:
Todd Crew, ex bassplayer from Jetboy, an 80's rockband. He had been fired from the band 1987, and after that he took the job as a roadie for Guns N' Roses. He was a good friend of Slash, and after the two friends, in New York, had bought drugs, which Slash had not been affected of but Todd took to much of, Todd collapsed in Slash's appartment. Slash dragged him to his bathtub and flushed cold water on him, and soon Todd opened his eyes again. But after a short while he stopped breathing. He died in Slash arms.
Nikki Sixx, bass player in Mötley Crüe. He had taken an overdose of heroin on Mötley's Girls Girls Girls tour with Guns N' Roses, and walked into Slash's appartment and collapsed. He died, but was only dead for two minutes. He was brought back to life by adrelin, that had been injected to his heart at the hospital. The next day he took another overdose.
Very unfortunate, but true. I read about these incidents in Slash's book, and just imagining that happening to me is brutal.
I know. Wow, this was posted June 1? Jeese, I'm really slow.
