Former Guns N' Roses man Slash has revealed his love of Adele.

"She's great," he tells The Independent. "She's a shot in the arm for this industry. She writes her own music that's not at all contrived. And she's managed to sell loads of records which makes her a great example to the younger artists. Like Amy Winehouse, she's organic and real. It's great to have that happen at this moment when everybody else is so synthetic."

The guitarist also spoke about his time in Guns N' Roses, the band he left 1996 after a fall out with frontman Axl Rose. "I still look back on it being the ultimate pre-adult, post-adolescent experience," he says. "I'm a pretty durable survivor and I'm fortunate to be here anyway. But I think if I'd kept trying to negotiate that existence, I wouldn't be here."

The legendary axeman released his second solo album 'Apocalyptic Love' in May. It features Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy on vocals.

Slash will tour the UK in October. To check the availability of Slash tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
