SLASH Performs 'Welcome To The Jungle' During BILL GATES' CES Keynote Speech; Video Available

Former GUNS N' ROSES axeman Slash performed a version of the band's classic "Welcome to the Jungle" at the end of Bill Gates' final Consumer Electronics Show keynote speech before retiring from Microsoft Sunday (January 6) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

According to the Digital Noise blog, "the final set piece featured a Guitar Hero III battle between Gates and Microsoft Entertainment and Devices President Robbie Bach. Each brought in a ringer — Bach got a Guitar Hero champion who shredded the introduction to GUNS N' ROSES' 'Welcome to the Jungle'. Gates, never to be trumped, brought in Slash, who played the real thing on his Les Paul through a pair of Marshall half-stacks."

Watch video of Slash's performance at this location (go to around the 63-minute mark).
