Ronnie Wood has claimed that he gave Slash guitar tips when the Guns N' Roses guitarist was growing up.

Slash - real name Saul Hudson - was born and raised in England, before relocating to the US with his family aged 11.

Speaking on radio station Absolute Classic Rock, Wood said: "Slash, I remember him as a kid spying on me when I was playing guitar and I'd teach him little licks, and now I'm learning licks off him, it's really good.

"He's a great guy to play with and he's great at interacting, a good weaver, you know, we can weave, like me and [Bobby] Womack do and me and Keith Richards do. Slash is such a great talent, and he plays in my solo band when I take it out and he's on my new album as well."
