Excerpt from The Rockstar Ramblings:
Slash is back into the animated video world, this time for his song “Bad Rain”, the latest single from his album ‘Apocalyptic Love.’
The video begins with a Death of a Salesman looking fellow who just wants to unwind with some girls and rock and roll, you know, the American Dream. What does a guy like this order – I’m guessing something “on the rocks”, he looks too beat down to order just a light beer. His eyes widen when he sees a fetching tattooed girl begin dancing on the stage. The scene starts as a burlesque type show, but quickly escalates to full nudity with Slash (featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators) playing in the background.
At 1:22 we see another patron that looks like he wants to murder the dancer. This could quickly turn into an animated SVU episode if he’s not careful. Is that anger or sexual frustration at 1:45? All is forgotten by 1:50 when we are gifted with an elusive animated Slash smile.
