Axl Rose has suddenly emerged to do interviews for the first time in years and what he's saying might make former Guns N' Roses bandmates Slash and Duff McKagan a little uncomfortable. Including former girlfriend Stephanie Seymour, Rose says the the trio broke his songwriting spirit.
Could you imagine how different Poison would sound if Slash was their guitarist? Or how the former Guns N’ Roses star would look with poofy hair and tons of makeup? Well, the top-hatted one did in fact try out for the job, and as you might expect it wasn’t a perfect match.
Believe it or not, Slash hasn’t performed everywhere. In fact, the guitarist has one gig that’s eluded him for years that he still wants to play. So please, can’t you tell him how to get… how to get to Sesame Street?
Slash became the latest celebrity to join the Hollywood Walk of Fame this past week, and the guitar great admits that he almost didn’t believe it to be true until the weeks leading up to the ceremony.
Slash hasn’t even begun his summer tour, but he’s announced 18 dates for a fall tour of America that will include Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The trek begins Sept. 4 in San Diego, Calif and wraps up Oct. 3 in Los Angeles and includes stops in major cities across the country.
Let’s see. You’re Slash, and you’ve got six weeks off before the next leg of your tour in support of ‘Apocalyptic Love.’ Do you spend that time recharging your batteries by resting on some beach somewhere, or do you grab your guitar and jam with one of your idols? For the real Slash, there’s really only one answer, isn’t there?
You never forget your first. Of course, we’re talking about guitars. Did you think we meant something else? The nerve of some people. Either way, in a new interview, Slash discusses the instruments on which he got his start.
He’s been a part of some of rock’s biggest records and had his musical gifts affirmed with a membership in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but that doesn’t mean Slash has gotten complacent. In fact, during a recent interview with NPR to promote his latest album, ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ he admitted that he’s “really still like I was when I was 15, trying to figure this thing out.”
Slash, the world’s busiest guitar hero, will soon be hitting the road in support of his new album, ‘Apocalyptic Love.’ Just to make sure he’s never got a free moment, he’s added a whole bunch of dates to his schedule.
Like sands through the hour glass, these are the days of… oh wait, that’s a different soap opera. Drama-rich and story poor, the saga of Guns N Roses appears to be at the end for Slash. It seems the guitar legend is ready to move on from any thoughts of the original band reuniting, once and for all.
During a longer conversation about song and lyric writing, Slash told a few stories about how songs like ‘Paradise City’ and ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ came to be. The guitarist tells Metro Lyrics that the well-known Guns N’ Roses hits were pretty spontaneous.
