Slash Regrets Using Gay Disparagingly


In describing a Michael Jackson song, guitarist Slash used the word "gay" -- and he now regrets his choice of words.

The former Guns n' Roses member is often credited as the guitarist behind the Michael Jackson hit "Black or White." But at last week's Canadian Music Week, Slash said, "I never played on ['Black or White']. If you listen to [the hook], that's gay. I'd never play that."

Slash now tells the website, "I thought about that afterward 'cause really that just came right out ... now I think it sounded a bit too derogatory. What I really meant was that the sound of the guitar is very happy. It just doesn't sound like me, anyone would know that. It's not the guitar sound you would expect from me, but somehow I got pigeonholed as the guy who played on that song."
