Slash said he's been so successful as an artist because he's not afraid to embrace a number of different musical genres.

Slash said he's so successful because he's not afraid to embrace a number of different musical genres.

The legendary guitar player said his eclectic approach is the reason his self-titled debut album - released earlier this year - managed to successfully bring together artists as diverse as Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, punk rocker Iggy Pop and heavy metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne.

He said: "I fuse everything together loosely with a basic rock 'n' roll approach, and it fits into a lot of different styles.

"Although a lot of people don't do it, I like to take what I do and infuse it into some hip hop, some pop music, and other genres because it works.

"Most people are too scared to branch out that way, but I think it works really well."

The musician - an ex-member of Guns N' Roses - also praised the versatility of his chosen instrument, saying that although his preferred setup isn't universal, he feels there's a place for guitar in almost all music.

He added: "Guitar-in some way, shape, or form-fits into just about anything. A Les Paul through a Marshall doesn't necessarily fit in every music medium, but guitar itself can fit into almost anything."
