Velvet Revolver rocker Slash has his trademark hat back after a Los Angeles clothing company offered a $5,000 (GBP2,631) for it.

The former GUNS N' ROSES star's top hat was stolen from a limousine at the GRAMMYS last month (FEB05), leaving the guitarist both distraught and annoyed.

But now Slash his hat back, thanks to the founders of rock clothing line BC ETHIC.

BC Ethic boss MARK ZACKER tells US news show CELEBRITY JUSTICE, "I had a gentleman call me and he asked to talk to me about the reward, he wanted to know if he could come down, if we could meet him in a private place.

"Supposedly somebody came up to him and they'd found it on Hollywood Boulevard and he had bought the hat for $50. He didn't know what it was."
