br /> Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash has been singled out for fronting one of the oddest product endorsements in musical history.

According to electric guitar manufacturer Gibson, famous musicians have been no strangers to using their high profile to promote a range of items.

However, it believes Slash's endorsement of Black Death Vodka could qualify as one the strangest musical pairings ever.

Gibson - the brand favoured by Slash during his career - said this is because most companies would typically avoid associating themselves with stars who are "notoriously debaucherous".

Nevertheless, it noted that with the label depicting a skull sporting a top hat, Black Death Vodka could have been the "perfect item" for the electric guitar player to promote.

Gibson added that at the time of the campaign in the early 1990s, Guns N' Roses were one of the biggest rock bands in the world.

The band garnered considerable success with hits such as November Rain, Sweet Child of Mine, Paradise City and Welcome to the Jungle, although Slash left in 1996.
