This rare Tidus Sloan gig flyer shown here is from my personal collection. One of only two known examples, the other owned by Marc Canter author of “Reckless Road.”

“The first thing I did as soon as I could put three chords together was start a band. At a really young age, I was going around trying to find people to form a group.” (Slash)

“Tidus Sloan was a purely instrumental band because we never found a singer and I certainly wasn’t going to sing myself.” (Slash)

Slash played in this band from 1981 to 1983.

  • Slash: guitar
  • Ron Schneider: bass
  • Adam Greenberg: drums
  • Louie Metz: bass

Played songs: When The Five Dies / Metal On Metal / What A Change / Rats Ass Rock N’ Roll / Funky And Stormbringer / Heaven And Hell (Black Sabbath) / What You’re Doing (Rush) / Dazed And Confused (Led Zeppelin) / Message In A Bottle (Police) / Start Me Up (The Rolling Stones) / Feelings (Morris Albert)
