Slash Honored With 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award

There is no denying that Slash is a legend and a guitar maestro of the highest order.

That’s why it’s no surprise he has once again been recognized for his talents, this time by Guitar International. The magazine has bestowed the ex-Guns N’ Roses and current Velvet Revolver axesmith with the 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award. Congrats, Slash! You deserve it.

Slash, born Saul Hudson 46 years ago in Hampstead, London, England, was granted the award which celebrates guitarists that “have deepened our passion for our favorite music, as well as entertained and inspired guitarists around the world.”

As a token of thanks and appreciation, Slash tweeted about winning this award, writing: “A huge thank u to Guitar International for the ’11 Lifetime Achievement Award. I’m honored & humbled to say the least.”

We love that Slash is so grateful and acknowledges these sorts of accolades at this point in his career, when he is one of the most respected guitarists ever. He still makes time to say thanks! That makes him a class act.
