Slash insists calling him a guitar master is "bulls**t".

The former Guns N' Roses star is renowned for his musicianship but he insists it is down to hard work, rather than natural expertise and he can always improve his skills.

He said: "That whole guitar master stuff, that's bulls**t - I have been working and working on it, and it will never end. It's a work in progress, but I have a great time doing it."

Slash - who picked up the Icon Award at last night's (07.06.12) Kerrang! Awards fuelled by Relentless Energy Drink in London - loves performing live and says he has more fun doing so as he is getting older because he is a much more accomplished musician.

He added to BANG Showbiz: "Live is predominantly what I got into this for. I love to write songs and I love recording them, but its all a means to an end and that is performing live.

"Playing live now, when it comes down to it not much has changed over the last 20 years, but I'm a little bit more coherent these days, and I'm a little bit of a better guitar player, so I guess it's a little more fun."
