Slash’s 1979 Love Letter to “My Michelle” Hits the Web

A recently unearthed love letter written by a then-14-year-old Slash in 1979 proves that before the guitarist was providing riffs for Guns n’ Roses and Velvet Revolver, he was a kid writing cheesy compliments and doodling pot leafs on looseleaf paper to impress girls. The blog Letters of Note, via Hard Rock Memorabilia, posted Slash’s handwritten missive to Michelle Young last week, giving us a glimpse of Saul Hudson’s teenage mind — he writes about how he regrets that his love of the guitar ruined his relationship with Young, who would later be the inspiration behind the Appetite For Destruction track “My Michelle.”

In the letter, Slash ruminates on his weekend, telling Young that he went to the Los Angeles venue Starwood and “spent pretty much of my weekend on cloud 9 if you know what I mean.” (Translation: He was stoned) “To get off the subject, you look really nice today, you get prettier & prettier every day,” the young Casanova writes, adding, “The girls are pretty (I still think you cuter than any of the girls there).” Later, Slash brags about going to see an up-and-coming band called Quiet Riot the next weekend and predicts, “One of these days I’ll play [Starwood].” While he never ended up playing the Starwood — it closed up shop just two years later — he ended up more than exceeding his own 14-year-old expectations.
