Hehe, I was going through interviews and just thought I would look more into it. I have a word document now with every GN'R interview, so it is simple to extract such data. And funny.

But yeah, slow times. Not right now, then. With all the new shows announced.

Haha, believe it or not, I was wondering about when Slash started saying this in public speech. From browsing the interviews I thought it made its first appearance in 1991 - I hadn't noticed he had used it in 1988, too Very Happy
I had also noticed that it became more frequent when the band started to fall apart and I wonder if there is a connection. I guess it makes more appearances post-1996.

So the conclusion might be that it's not a good sign when Slash uses this phrase too often Very Happy

I also think he has been using it more and more after 1996, and these days it seems he uses it in every interview. I think it has just become a quirk of his, something he says without thinking. Like "you know".

Yep. For annoying reasons, whenever a journalist gets to edit Slash's replies, that phrase seems to be edited out. It is much more frequent in video transcripts.
