Legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) told Australia's long-running rock station Triple M on Monday that his neighbor, actor Charlie Sheen, "is probably the most rock n' roll character in entertainment today."Production on Charlie Sheen's sitcom "Two And A Half Men" was recently put on hold following a series of scandals in his private life and his public rants against the show's creator, Chuck Lorre. In an interview with Chris Page from Triple M Sydney's The Grill Team during his tour with the Soundwave 2011 rock festival (see video below), Slash spoke about the troubles his buddy is facing. "I love Charlie," Slash smiled. "Charlie is probably the most rock n' roll character in entertainment today. All things considered, he's been having a little bit of a hard time recently with all the bad press and everything. But he's been managing to get away with what he's been doing on that show and get a raise over the last more than ten years. I think that's pretty cool," he laughed.
