SIOUX CITY, Iowa, May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ –GRAMMY award winning artist SLASH created a piece of music history yesterday at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City by autographing the Gibson Les Paul ’58 Reissue guitar on display in the casino. The artist had previously presented the instrument to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas in 2007 to go with the Robert Knight photo exhibit.

SLASH helped create signature sounds like the guitar riff on #1 hits for Guns N’ Roses “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Welcome To The Jungle.” After leaving the band, SLASH went on to critical acclaim with SLASH’s Snakepit and global success with the supergroup Velvet Revolver before embarking on his own solo career.
