In an interview with Argentinean rock journalist Lucas H. Gordon, conducted at the Musicares Map Fundation at The Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, Slash talks about the new album, the future of Velvet Revolver and the upcoming tour with Aerosmith. Watch the video interview below:
Slash bassist Todd Kerns - who also fronts Sin City Sinners - recently posted the following via his new blog, titled Confessional:
"These are very exciting times. I have been living with the mixes from the new SMK&C (Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators for the uninitiated) and I can say that this record goes beyond any expectations I could have had. There is so much I am biting my tongue about because these things are to be announced through formal channels - album title, song titles, artwork etc. Suffice it to say that it has grown to be a sprawling and diverse journey of an album. I’ve taken to calling it our Physical Graffiti due to its weight, size and diversity. In the coming weeks so many things will be revealed. I believe it is the boldest thing we could have done."
"So here we are in the familiar holding pattern. The record is mixed. Next up is mastering. Photos will be an important part of the puzzle, then once everything has fallen into place a song will probably be released to the hot little ears of our brethren the world round to carry us through the summer and into September when the album will be released. I’m only speculating. Never hold me to anything I say here. This is my little domain and the tales woven here can be rife with fact or riddled with misleading fiction. But then again maybe not."
Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith chat with Live Nation about taking Slash out for an epic Let Rock Rule summer tour. Don't miss out on this pairing of legends.
