Slash is smokin’

Not one for ever obeying rules, Velvet Revolver’s axe-wielder Slash may be fined after smoking onstage at a gig in Cardiff on Thursday.

Chain-smoking through the gig at the International Arena, he may face a £50 fine because of the ban on smoking in enclosed spaces that has been in place in Wales since April. The venue is also liable for £2,500 fine for not stopping Slash from lighting up.

Cardiff city council has confirmed that it is investigating the matter, which should probably look into who the hell is going to tell Slash to not spark up.
