Slash Rocks Top Gear BBC

Top Gear BBC

I am a huge fan of Top Gear on BBC.  I am sure the guys on the American version of the show by the same name, are probably great people, and may be really funny… apart, but the original Top Gear on BBC is one of the very best car shows on television, and one of the most entertaining in any genre.

I bring it up, well, because he was probably high when he did it.

One of the guests in series 18 is none other than Slash.  While he was there, he performed a new version of the show’s theme song, “Jessica
