Slash has a confession. Even though he may be one of the baddest rockers on this planet, he does have a soft spot for “the happiest place on earth.” The musician told the Telegraph that he became “a Disney junkie” after vacationing with his family aboard a Disney cruise.


He recalls, “In 2006, after I’d kicked my drug and alcohol addiction, I went on a holiday with Perla and the kids that I was really dreading. Would you believe they dragged me on a Disney cruise?”

Slash laughs, “God knows what the other guests thought when they pegged it was me because it just doesn’t tally with the image of a rocker. We spent a week going from Mexico to Florida. It potentially could have been really bad, but it turned out to be one of the most fun vacations I’ve ever been on, so much so that I’m a Disney junkie now.” The guitarist says that after the cruise, he and his family took advantage of two days at Disney World.

While it is interesting to think of Slash aboard a cruise or mingling with Mickey, Donald, and Goofy, the musician says he might not have been as conspicuous as you would initially think.

He adds,” The only thing different I take with me when I’m on holiday, as opposed to when I’m touring, is a pair of shorts. All things considered, if I’m going somewhere sunny, you don’t want to be wearing black leather pants.”

Slash, fully rocking the leather pants, will be back on the road in the U.S. this fall with Foxy Shazam opening dates.
