Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash was left devastated after his trademark top hat was stolen at this month's Grammy Awards.

The former Guns N' Roses rocker had worn the same headgear for 15 years, but is now looking for a replacement after the hat was taken from the back of the band's limousine.

A source says, "Slash was livid. There's no amount of money that can replace it."

Slash Gets Help From TV Show to Locate Top Hat



Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash has asked a TV show to help him recover his trademark top hat, which was recently stolen from his limousine.

The former Guns N' Roses rocker was devastated when he learned the hat had been stolen at the Grammy Awards. His wife Perla also had some of her personal items taken.

And now the British-born star is urging anybody with information on the whereabouts of the stolen property to contact the TV show Celebrity Justice as soon as possible.

Slash, real name Saul Hudson, had worn the same hat for 15 years before it was taken.

I too don't think he's only worn one top hat, but I don't think that's the point. The top hat is a part of Slash's image - a part of Slash himself. It's one way to distinguish him from every other great guitarist out there. When someone says top hat, the first thing that comes to mind is Slash. OK the first thing that comes to mind is a guiy wearing a top hat. BUT THE SECOND THING THAT COMES TO MIND IS SLASH! Hold on, what's a guy that wears a top hat called? You know just for future reference. "Tophatters?","Hattops?","Taphops?"(K now I'm just gettin' stupid). Wait what are we talking about again?
