Slash is one of rock 'n' roll's most mysterious personas, but, every now and then he opens up and shares some of his secrets.

The guitar hero is gearing up to release his fourth album — 4 — with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators later this week, and they're heading out on tour tonight in support of it (see the dates here). So, he spent a bit of time on Reddit yesterday answering some fan questions in an AMA session.

While some fans used what may have been their one-and-only chance to communicate with Slash to tell them their favorite Guns N' Roses song or ask for a birthday shout-out, a couple asked some pretty cool questions, in which he gave interesting responses. In case you missed it and don't want to go through the thread yourself, we've compiled a gallery of what we think his coolest answers were.
