When I was young (younger, haha), Slash of Guns N´ Roses was my absolute idol. I would pose with a tennis racket in front of a mirror, pretending to be rocking stages worldwide.
Before I was active in the music industry, I was "just" a fan. The photo shows Slash and me sometimes in the end of the 90s in Cologne, Germany. I was standing all day in front of the venue to meet him and it worked out, as you can see.
Who would have thought, that years later I would be working with the guitar god personally on the launch of his first signature guitars line in 2008.
