A famous lead guitarist for “Guns N’ Roses” and thought to be one of the best guitarists in the music industry, how rich is Slash? According to sources, Slash’s net worth is estimated to be $32 million. Needless to say, the majority of Slash’s net worth and wealth came from his involvement in the music industry.

Saul Hudson was born in 1965, in London, England, yet when he was five years old he moved out to Los Angeles, California with his father. Slash’s passion for music was prevalent during his teenage years. In 1979, Slash met Steven Adler who would soon become his good friend, as well as a band member. With Adler, Slash joined his very first band called “Road Crew”. The group was later joined by Duff McKagan, yet “Road Crew” soon disbanded as they were unable to find a lead vocalist. Shortly afterwards, Slash and Adler joined “Hollywood Rose”, a hard rock group that was founded by Axl Rose, Chris Weber and Izzy Stradlin. “Hollywood Rose” would soon become “Guns N’ Roses” with which Slash spent more than 11 years. Slash left the band in 1996 due to having issues with the way Rose handled and controlled the band. After “Guns N’ Roses”, Slash went on to work on other projects and founded two bands, namely “Slash’s Snakepit”, which disbanded in 2002, and “Velvet Revolver”, which consists of former “G N’ R” members Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum.
