‘Hey man, this is Slash. We listened to you next door, always loved your guitar. Izzy’s gone, would you play with us?’”

 

Didnt know about this one.

Marc Ford (Black Crowes, etc) tells LA TIMES about the morning Slash asked him to join GNR in 1991 after Izzy left

From the LA TIMES:

The Monday after Marc Ford was asked to join The Black Crowes in late 1991, he was surprised to hear from Slash. The two guitarists had never spoken, but Ford’s pre-Crowes band, Burning Tree, had recently practiced at a Mates Rehearsal Studios space next to Guns N’ Roses, who had the big room at Mates’ original location on Cleon Avenue in North Hollywood. “Like 10:30 in the morning I get this call: ‘Hey man, this is Slash,’” Ford recalls now. “'We listened to you next door, always loved your guitar. Izzy’s gone, would you play with us?’”
