Top Gear always seems to have well known American celebrities as guests for it's “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car” segment. (This might be because they realize being on one of the most watched TV shows in the world can really boost your popularity.) In this part of the show a celebrity guest comes on for an interview with Jeremy Clarkson, and gets to race around the Top Gear test track. Then you are compared to other celebrity guests track times on the “Power Lap” board. This is quite an exciting and fun segment and it is always great to see who comes on Top Gear. Notably American celebrities include Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Mark Wahlberg, Andy Garcia, Matt LeBlanc, and even Slash!
For Season 18 of Top Gear the famous Guns N' Roses guitar player went on the show. The Slash interview with Jeremy Clarkson was informative, interesting, and as usual funny. On top of that the guitar player came back for the last episode for Season 18 for an awesome performance of “Jessica” the Top Gear theme song. Check it out!
