Slash, former lead guitarist for Guns 'N Roses, popped into the middle of the Super Bowl XLV Halftime Show and tried to redeem the Black Eyed Peas performance as it was quickly spiraling out of control. Sandwiched between Fergie shakin' it and an odd display of glowsticks, Slash brought the thunder, playing a solo from Sweet Child Of Mine. His entrance -- rising from the middle of the stage -- was awesome and his guitar solo was just as great.
With axe in hand, Slash looked completely out of place amidst the train wreck that was the halftime show, even shying away from Fergie as she moved in for the kill. And then, just as quickly as it began, it was over and Slash disappeared back into nowhere, likely to never be heard from again.
From Guns 'N Roses to a cameo in a Black Eyed Peas and Usher halftime show, this is how far Slash has fallen. Luckily nobody will remember his part as they rip everything else about the show. At least he's got that going for him.
