Slash: ''Paradise City' Has Always Been My Favorite Song to Play Live'
In the latest online Q&A session, Slash has delved into the domain of personal musical favorites, discussing favorite songs to play live, inspirational riffs and more.

Kicking off the session with "What's your favorite song to play live?" question, the axeman replied:

"That's a tough one, it can be any number of songs in a given night that you feel really excited about playing, but I think that 'Paradise City' has always been my favorite rock 'n' roll song to just bust out live. It just works every time, it's got the right tempo and the right energy. It's always been a favorite of mine."

When asked about "the most influential riff you've been inspired by," Slash singled out Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love."

"There's a lot of inspirational riffs, but when I was six years old, I was turned on to 'Whole Lotta Love' from the second Zeppelin record, so I would say that's where it all started for me."

During the rest of the chat, the guitarist also talked about the place where he found his very first hat. Check out the clip below for more.
