Post by Soulmonster on Wed 22 Jun 2011 - 13:45

Neil Zlozower, rock photographer and new-found internet junkie, invited Slash to come down for an online chat session via Netscape. Similar to IRC, the chat line got overloaded at one point, and mayhem broke loose. The "moderated" channel crashed, so we moved over to the unmoderated one, where some people didn't exactly appreciate what Slash was doing for them.

[Andreas]: I've put together the questions that got answered and of course, everything Slash said. So, this isn't the entire chat session (Don't see why anyone would like to see a lot of unanswered questions though Smile.
