"The next day day we made it official: I told Tom to let Paul (Stanley,Kiss) know that we were going to continue our quest for a producer, thank you very much. I'm sorry to say that not long afterward,I retold this story to the L.A weekly, with an excessive degree of attitude directed at Paul. I meant no harm; I was so enthusiastic about what we were doing that to me anyone who didn't get it was just wrong.I didn't even remember insulting Paul publicly and therefore had no qualms about calling him a month or two later to ask for a favor. We'd begun recording,at that point,but I'D PAWNED MY BEST GUITARS FOR DOPE and I hoped that he would that he would be able to hook me up with some studio worthy gear via his sponsorship deal with B.C Rich
'Hey Paul it's slash' I said 'It's been a while. how are you man?'
'I'm good' he said
'Hey,listen, I know you've got that deal with B.C rich. Do you think you can get me some guitars?'
'Yeah, I could,it wouldn't be a problem' he said' followed by..... silence
'But I WONT. Here's a piece of advice; you should be careful about airing your dirty linen in public. Good look to you'
hmmm, dirty laundry, public was that a "precedent" /
