“It was great playing with us when we were on The Tonight Show. There’s a funny story there because Slash normally had a cigarette in his mouth.
“During the rehearsal, these people came, very seriously, and said, ‘I’m afraid you can’t do that, Mr. Slash. It is not allowed by the regulations.
“He said, ‘Uh, okay.’ He turned it off. When the time comes when the cameras are rolling and we’re live, really, really live on Jay Leno’s show, it’s not recorded, he comes in with a cigarette in his mouth. I just looked at it and said, ‘Yeah, it’s Slash.’
“You can’t really take that away from him. Not that I want him to smoke. I hate smoking because it killed my dad. But Slash is an independent mind. And my boy, did he play well.
