Rumors circulating that Slash is finally in possession of his signature top hat are completely false, along with the idea that this is somehow part of a marketing campaign to promote an upcoming Slash clothing line.
The trademark hat Slash has had since the birth of GnR is still missing. With help from loyal fans and friends, our goal is to ultimately have this prized possession returned to Slash. We are seeking anyone with information pertaining to the "Mark and Brian Show" where the individual claiming to be in possession of the hat was interviewed. This would include a recording, a transcript or any specific detail during the interview that seemed out of the ordinary.
If u think u have any information regarding this, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) immediately. Your support in reuniting Slash with what was once part of his magic is greatly appreciated and will not go unnoticed.
