Born and raised in England, Saul Hudson became an L.A. rock star with a one-syllable stage name that aptly describes his guitar-hero moves: Slash. As a founding member of Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver and, later, as a Michael Jackson collaborator, Slash has stayed true to his vision of rock 'n' roll style: sunglasses, black leather jackets, skull jewelry and his trademark top hat. These are among the predictable 300-plus treasures being exhibited at...

The Sunset Strip holds a special place in the heart of one Saul Hudson, better known as the guitarist Slash. "In the 1970s, my family moved from England to the Laurel Canyon area, and my parents were very much dialed in to the whole Sunset Strip scene," said the rocker. "They were both in the music business, and the whole reason we lived where we did was because of the recording industry. So I have very vivid memories of the Rainbow and the Roxy, and the Whisky was a huge point of interest at that time.

Getting your pink slip from one of the biggest rock bands of the decade is enough to give a boy the blues. And that's just what guitarist Slash has come down with following Guns N' Roses' latest (and according to many reports final) sayonara. Rather than brood, he threw together a six-man blues band and returned to fundamentals as laid down by such masters as . . . the James Gang and Alice Cooper? Nobody can accuse Slash of being a purist.

Actor David Boreanaz is not an angel, but he plays a guy named Angel on TV. The character on WB's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is Buffy's boyfriend, who is not exactly housebroken. His former landlord says that the same is true of the actor. Landlord Roger Hostin of Boston is suing Boreanaz in Los Angeles Superior Court, charging that Boreanaz and a roommate, Patrick Bradley, trashed his vintage Los Feliz house during their four-year tenancy, causing at least $100,000 in damage.

Slash, as Guns N' Roses' lead guitarist Saul Hudson calls himself, is the closest thing to Keith Richards that American rock has produced since Aerosmith's Joe Perry in the '70s--and, at 27, Slash may already have outdistanced Perry's accomplishments. The colorful musician has a feel for the same sensual, seductive, blues-edged notes that Richards introduced with the Rolling Stones. But the similarities with Richards don't end with the music.

The manager of Guns N' Roses testified Friday that ex-drummer Steven Adler was put on probation to help save him from a deadly heroin addiction, not to cheat him out of money. "I tried for a year and a half to get him clean, and we decided we had to do more," Doug Goldstein told a Los Angeles Superior Court jury. "We had to clean him up because he'd wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars" in worthless studio and rehearsal time, Goldstein said.
