    One might think that a legendary guitarist such as Slash would spend his free time doing something other than playing a guitar. It's always good to have non-work hobbies. Turns out, he didn't separate much from his axe! The guitarist told Kerrang! that he was once addicted to... Guitar Hero. Yes, the video game.

    "Guitar Hero was cool because it was something I could identify with," Slash said. "My skills are lousy but there was one period, for a couple of months, where I became completely fucking obsessed." He's not kidding. He even had to pack the game up and put it in the closet, since, you know, outta sight, outta mind.

    Slash was a playable character in a later version of Guitar Hero, new versions of which are no longer in production as the game is "on hiatus," according to game maker Activision.

    Did you play Guitar Hero?
