Slash feels the Sting

Friends of L.A. Zoo honor Slash

After checking out the new Elephants of Asia exhibit and other exotic critters, friends of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Assn. gathered Saturday night in Griffith Park to honor Slash.

Somehow, presenter Stephanie Powers didn’t get the message, and kept talking about Sting. Finally, org prexy Connie Morgan corrected her mid-speech. “Did I say that twice?” Powers wondered. Actually, she mentioned Sting thrice.

Slash took it well.

“I’ve been going to this zoo since I was 6 or 7,” he recalled. “I actually snuck Guns N’ Roses in here once, and I still owe the zoo for that.”
