Time Magazine named him runner-up on "The 10 Best Guitar Players" in 2009 

He's played guitar for Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper and did the guitar work on the film score for the Wrestler. He joined his first rock band Titus Sloan in 1981, played in Road Crew and Hollywood Rose and would be turned down to play guitar for Poison.

Saul Hudson was born on July 23, 1965 in Hampstead, London, England. As a kid, he was always in a hurry and would earn his nickname from a family friend.

At # 2 on my list of cool rockstar names, I give you, the one, the only, SLASH.  He did his thing in Velvet Revolver and Slash's Snakepit,and Oh yeah, he played in Guns and Roses too!!  So slide on your aviator shades and your top hat while you enjoy the video.
