A man trying to sell legendary guitarist Slash
's (GUNS N' ROSES
, VELVET REVOLVER
) California driver license is featured on the latest episode of History
channel's popular "Pawn Stars"
show, which follows the staff of a Las Vegas "upper market" pawn store the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.
Asked how he got his hands on Slash
's ID, the man, who is only identified by his first name, Travis
, said, "A good buddy of mine actually had it years ago. He got it from his girlfriend, who was a bartender, and she ended up being there serving these guys all long long. And the whole group were trying to get her to flash for 'em. So she did, she flashed one, and he threw it on the bar. I took it when I was about 18 and used it for my fake ID until I was 21."Travis
, who came to the store in the middle of the night, wanted $50,000 and shop employee Austin "Chumlee" Russell
said he would call in 44-year-old pawn shop owner Rick Harrison
, who only offered $1,000 for the license, called $50,000 an "insane" price. "If [Slash
's] driver license was worth 50 grand, I guarantee you he would be losing his license once a month and showing up at DMV, 'Ah, sorry, guys, I lost it again,'" Rick
said. "'Cause he would be selling that many."
