GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash is featured in the latest episode of MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx's new original video series, "My Favorite Riff With Nikki Sixx". In the episode, which can be viewed below, Slash and Nikki talk about their shared love for AEROSMITH, learning LED ZEPPELIN riffs, and the joy of being a musician. In other news, Slash recently purchased a new home in Encino, California for $6.25 million, according to The Pulse Of Radio. The 9,400-square-foot residence is located in a suburban enclave where many celebrities have houses. The house is completely walled and gated, with two driveways, a wraparound motorcourt and three-car garage. The home contains 10 bathrooms and six bedrooms, including a master suite with an outdoor balcony, a living room with high ceilings and fireplace, a family room, a screening room, a game room, a home office and library, and a covered area for outdoor lounging. Slash picked up the place shortly after selling his old home, in which he lived with ex-wife Perla Hudson, to rapper Big Sean for $8.7 million. The GUNS N' ROSES guitarist had originally put the Beverly Hills estate on the market for $11 million in 2015, cutting the price to $9.5 million in 2016 and again this year. He bought it for $7.3 million in 2009. Perla Hudson, meanwhile, has moved into her own $3.5 million, 6,113-square-foot mansion, also in Encino. Slash reportedly purchased that one as well, perhaps to make sure his two sons with Perla were nearby. GUNS N' ROSES just finished an 18-month world tour that begin in April 2016 and ended last month, earning the reunited band more than $400 million. The group will return to Europe next summer, although the rest of its future plans are shrouded in secrecy for now.
