WTF Flashback: Slash “Fights” Michael Jackson Onstage—Video

Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 12.52.26 PMRemember the time Slash overstayed his welcome during a live appearance with Michael Jackson?

We didn’t either–until we stumbled upon this wacky video!

In the clip, which you can check out below, it seems as though Slash reeeeally doesn’t wasn’t to get off the stage — and doesn’t want his guitar solo to end.

Meanwhile, an “outraged” Jackson keeps dancing, hoping Slash will take the hint … but he doesn’t. Jackson even sidles up to the guitarist and tells him (OK, screams at him!) to stop playing … to no avail. Next, Jackson’s crew gets involved, and Slash fights them off!

Obviously, this event was staged–a total fake. We all know Slash is a humble guy and one of the nicest personalities in rock. Either way, the clip is enjoyable in its own deranged way.

    Michael was also “a humble guy and one of the nicest personalities” generally. He had a mischievous sense of humor and performed gags like this since he was with his brothers in the Jackson 5. He and Slash cooked this one up together and did it on more than this one occasion, for their own entertainment and a good laugh.
