A video of Slash getting tackled onstage at a recent gig has surfaced online and you can see it by scrolling down.

In the video, the former Guns N' Roses man is taken down from behind as he is playing his guitar solo on the song 'Sweet Child o' Mine'.

The incident, which took place in Milan, Italy last Thursday (June 10), left the guitarist uninjured – however, his guitar was damaged.

Prior to the gig, Slash told fans via his Facebook page that it sounded like "one rowdy crowd", before later commenting on the incident after the show.

"What'd I say? Rowdy crowd for sure, but amazing," Slash said. "The guy who nailed me didn't take me down but he busted my poor guitar. Ah well, it was a kick ass rock show."

As previously reported, Slash was joined onstage by Motorhead's Lemmy at Download last weekend for a rendition of the song 'Doctor Alibi'.
