Slash: 'My Book Doesn't Encourage Drug Abuse'

Rocker SLASH has dismissed claims his new autobiography glamourises hard drugs - insisting he heard far worse stories about drug abuse but still became an addict. The former Guns 'N Roses star, who now plays in Velvet Revolver, details his battles with heroin and alcohol in his book Slash. But the now-sober 42-year-old isn't worried his book will encourage younger fans to start taking drugs. He says, "I've been told more explicit, negative stuff about drugs (than is in my book) and I still did them. If you're smart, you'll see where it (the book) starts and where it ends up and you'll go, 'It seems like a pain in the ass.' "At the same time, there was a lot of fun. I don't have any regrets about it."
