Slash Dressed In Drag To Get Into Club
A teenage Slash once partied at Los Angeles' fabled Rainbow bar in drag - because a doorman refused him entry with fake identification.
The rocker and musician pal Steven Adler both tried to gain entrance to the venue, despite being underage; Adler made it through the door but Slash was stopped and sent home.
Drunk and at a loss of what to do, Slash dressed up in his mother's clothes and returned to the Sunset Strip club.
He recalls, "It was ladies night, so girls got in for free, so I dressed up in drag and I went back.
"The whole reason behind it was 'cos I could go and pick up Steve... Steve would f**k anything, so I figured, 'I'll go in there... I'll pick up on him and see if he comes onto me'.
"It turns out he'd split with some chick and then all of a sudden the reality of the clothes that I was wearing and whole situation just (fell) like a ton of bricks on me... I had to walk home... It was the worst feeling."
