Slash 'pilfered' signature top hat
Former lead guitarist of Guns N' Roses Slash is famed for his black headgear, sunglasses and dark frizzy hair.

But while the singer's black top hat might be part of his signature stage look, he has admitted that he never bought the item and instead pilfered it when he was young and penniless.

He got the hat in 1985 after wandering around looking for something cool to wear for a gig at the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles, he told Kerrang! Magazine.

"I didn't have any money, so I was actually pilfering," Slash admitted.

He then went on to say: "I saw this hat in the store window, went in and took off with it and it just became a thing that I felt really comfortable in."

The 46-year-old revealed that he has a few different hats that he rotates between each morning. However, he always sticks to the same original hat while performing.
