Slash Recalls Painful Jackson Concert

Rocker SLASH feared he would suffer a heart attack while performing with MICHAEL JACKSON in New York in 2001 - because his newly-fitted pacemaker couldn't take the strain of the gig.
The former Guns N' Roses star teamed up with the late music legend to play at his 30th Anniversary Concert at Madison Square Garden celebrating Jackson's solo career.
Slash, who had recently undergone surgery to fit a pacemaker to his heart, admits the star-studded show made him ill - but he was determined to finish his performance with the Thriller hitmaker.
He recalls, "On stage I was suddenly hit in the chest by a shock and my vision flooded with electric blue light. It happened about four times each song. I had to stand there and make it look as if everything was normal. I saw it later on TV and you couldn't tell - so I pulled it off."
