HERE’S how a painting of DEBBIE HARRY ended up after former GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist SLASH got his rock star hands on it.
He gave the BLONDIE singer a black eye, ‘tache and goatee beard when he spotted the portrait on a corridor wall at Virgin Radio’s London HQ.
But tickled station bosses have left the picture UP.
A source revealed: “Slash was in the studio being interviewed.
“Out of the blue, he asked if anyone had a marker pen.
“A few minutes later he said he needed to pop to the loo. He then walked over to the painting as a runner walked past and turned to him and mouthed, ‘Shhh!’.”
Breakfast Show DJ CHRISTIAN O’CONNELL said: “We’re not going to bother replacing the painting. It’s a great story to tell visitors.”
Well, I’d heard Blondies have the most fun.
