"I love Charlie," Slash told Triple M Music, when asked about the actor's drug use and lady friends. "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."
The cigarette-dangling, top-hat sporting rocker is a longtime friend of Sheen's, and a picture of the two partying on a private plane appears in Slash's bestselling autobiography, 'Slash.' Of course, the guitarist once carried on in a similar fashion, but he now admits that the partying began to take its toll. "I never did find a balance," Slash explained. "I was probably one of those guys that manage to work and be under the influence on a regular basis. I showed up. I never fell over on stage. I never missed a gig. I finally just got to a point where I was sick and tired of all that."
And despite his support of the actor, Slash warned Sheen that "there is a cap, a point where you can't be productive."
