Slash: 'I was suicidal when I left GNR'

Legendary guitarist Slash considered suicide after watching Axl Rose record his vocals at the final Guns N' Roses recording session.

The band recorded a cover of the Rolling Stones' 'Sympathy for the devil' in 1994 and by that point Rose wouldn't even look at Slash.

The next day, Slash decided to leave the band.

Slash, who now plays with Velvet Revolver, recalls he went home to sleep, waking up two hours later.

He says: "I was suicidal. If I'd had a gun with me at that time, I probably would have done myself in.

"If I'd had a half-ounce of f**king heroin with me, I probably just would've gone. It was heavy. It was a headspace I'd never been in before.

"Somehow I managed to go back to sleep. Then, when I woke up later that morning, I made a decision. I felt the whole weight of the world drop."
