Does Slash have an all time favorite album? Slash was recently interviewed KLOS’ “Jonesy’s Jukebox,” and talked about his influences but in the end had a hard time picking one absolute favorite.
“Sabbath is one of my favorite bands, but I think if I was going to name a favorite record that has been a favorite for all my life it would probably be either Beggars Banquet or Let It Bleed from the [Rolling] Stones,” affirmed the guitarist, who then opened up his answer to include another pair of albums from the Stones.
“Actually, Sticky Fingers, Let It Bleed, Beggars Banquet, Exile on Main St. — those four records in a row are pretty much my favorite music of all time,” he said of the Rolling Stones’ impressive four-album streak between 1968 and 1972.
On the thread of cover songs, Slash confessed that, in his opinion, Metallica’s 1987 Garage Days covers EP is “one of the best covers records of all time.” He said what really speaks to him concerning covers is “where the artist really relates to the original material and it becomes part of their personality when they re-record it — I think that’s really cool.”
