New York (ANI): Guns N' Roses guitaring star Slash has revealed that he visited several sexual health clinics while touring with the band in the Eighties. He writes in his memoir 'Slash" that his visits to VD clinics was part of his attempts to prevent himself from contracting AIDS. The guitar-crunching rocker says that the AIDS epidemic was in a full swing then.
Slash has revealed that he was afraid of being afflicted by the disease because he was dating two women at that time. "I remember spending most of my days off in and out of a variety of VD clinics . . . I was dating a porno chick as well as this sweet little junkie jailbait girlfriend I had," the New York Post quoted him as writing in the book.
