Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash handed back a guitar he stole from a Hard Rock Café at a dedication ceremony honouring his music last week.

Slash’s musical heritage was being honoured at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas when he surprised organisers by presenting them with the guitar that he had stolen from the Hard Rock Café in Florida.

The Velvet Revolver guitarist said at the ceremony: "The guitar has the best story. I stole that from the Hard Rock in Orlando.

"It was in the dressing room. I didn't know what it was doing there, so I took it. I mean, it was in the dressing room and no one claimed it. So I've had it all these years and been playing it.”

Slash added: "But then I thought what better way to honour the Hard Rock for honouring me than to give it back, sort of," reports FF.
