Slash loves the Pistols

Former Guns N Roses guitarist Slash is the latest name to be backing the campaign to get the Sex Pistols to number one.

God Save The Queen was denied the top spot in 1977 as authorities feared it would spoil the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, but now it is being reissued on October 8th with a number of high profile names lending their support to get it to number one.

Slash said:

“The last time the Pistols reformed it was great. We were all pretty excited about it. As long as they’re doing it for the right reasons – they want to do it – then it’s fucking great. They were a huge influence on me when I was younger, and still are.”
