INDIO, CA - APRIL 16: Musician Slash of Guns N' Roses performs onstage during day 2 of the 2016 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival Weekend 1 at the Empire Polo Club on April 16, 2016 in Indio, California.

Slash celebrates his birthday today (July 23), but instead of looking back at on the many moments that have cemented him as one of the coolest guitar heroes of all time, let’s look back at one of Slash’s more humorous moments in his career.

We’ve all been tempted by guitar deals online, but sometimes they can be a bit sketchy. ¬†Fortunately, Conan O’Brien made this segment and brought Slash along to shop for guitars he found on Craigslist. Of course, the rest of us won’t have Slash by our side to make sure we’re not getting jobbed on a sale, but we all can dream.

Slash can be seen clearly grinning at Conan’s antics. They ended up not buying a guitar, but both Slash and Conan didn’t leave empty-handed from the third seller they visited, who was clearly a bit of a hoarder.


Conan O'Brien and Slash shop for guitars off Craig's List. The third guy they visit is hilarious! Slash still owns the bike Conan buys him. I was the editor on this piece. It's for demo purposes only.
