Guitar legend Slash is raising money for charity by teaming up with a burger chain to create a signature dish.

Californian-based Umami Burger restaurants now offer the Slash Burger, which has been named in honor of the former Guns N’ Roses guitarist.

One dollar from the sale of each sandwich, which costs $15, will be donated to the Los Angeles Youth Network, a non-profit organization helping runaway and homeless youths.

The luxury burger contains shiitake mushrooms, caramelized onions, American cheese, avocado spread and wasabi aioli.
