Slash Wonders How He Can Get to ‘Sesame Street’
Slash revealed his secret, long-held desire to visit the land of sunny days sweepin’ the clouds away during a recent interview with Rip It Up, saying that even after receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and being inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he won’t be truly satisfied until he can hang out with Big Bird and Grover.
“‘Sesame Street’ have never approached me, though I would do it and I love kids,” he admitted. “There’s no way I’d ever turn ‘Sesame Street’ down. But I don’t know if parents would think I’m the best public influence on little kids?”
Of course, as the article points out, ‘Sesame Street’ has played host to a wide variety of stars whose private habits are brought to you by the letter I (for inappropriate and/or illegal), including Johnny Cash and Richard Pryor — and Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler recorded a new version of Oscar the Grouch’s anthem ‘I Love Trash’ for the ‘Elmopalooza’ soundtrack album.
