SLASH will be presented with the Paul Rothchild Award at the LA Music Awards this evening. This award is given to the LA musician who contributes to the growth of the music scene in the LA area and in recognition of their professional ability. Paul Rothchild was very active in the LA music scene till the time of his death a few years ago. He is probably best remembered as the Doors' producer. SLASH was cited for his extensive club playing in the early GNR years, his profesional ability in branching out and playing with a variety of musicians (Lenny Kravitz, Michael Monroe, etc.), his Blues Ball and two Snakepit bands that heavily played the area, and SLASH's habit of dropping in any LA club anytime and jamming with the band. Congratulations, SLASH!
