The RR 2011 Benefit Honoring Slash
"I was deeply moved by the Road Recovery Benefit. Being honored was special enough as it was. Knowing that I represent something positive for young people who are struggling with addiction/adversities is an intensely personal honor in & of itself. But having the RR kids write & perform a song dedicated to me was especially touching. And, in addition to all that, performing w/some of my best musician friends made the whole evening just seem kind of momentous. It was a great night." – Slash
