When you need behind the scenes news about Slash, look no further than his girlfriend.

Meegan Hodges has shared a never before seen photo of Slash jamming with Izzy Stradlin from 1988.

The photo was posted to her Instagram along with a birthday message to Stradlin. Slash, along with Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagen, also posted their greetings.

Former Guns N’ Roses manager Alan Niven credits Hodges in a recent interview for helping patch things up between Slash and front man Axl Rose, leading to the band’s wildly successful “Not In This Lifetime” reunion tour.
