Bret Michaels has revealed more details about why they rejected Slash in the 1980s when he auditioned to join their band. "Slash is one of my all-time favorite guitar players and I believe he would have steered our sound a little more in the Aerosmith direction," he told Austin 360
. "He was basically the same guy he is today. What you see is what you get. It never really had a chance to work out or not. The band decided C.C. was the best choice for us."
