SLASH On "Workaholic" Reputation - "It's Just That I Really Love What It Is That I Do" (Video)
February 24, 2019, a year ago
Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash is featured in a new interview with Poland's Wirtualna Polska, discussing his early days as a guitarist, his work ethic, and how he chose the band members for his solo band, The Conspirators.
On being called a "workaholic"
Slash: "I think it's just that I really love what it is that I do, and in order to be able to do it, you have to be at it all the time. You can't just sort of hang around. Some people do that, but I'm not like that. I'm like, 'I want to make a new record. I want to go on the road. I want to go make another record. I want to go back on the road.' Maybe it's a workaholic thing, but I love jamming. I love playing."
Todd Kerns, who plays bass for Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators has revealed that the band filmed a live DVD on February 20th at the legendary Apollo in London, England. Of course, tickets were completely sold out. The DVD will be released via Eagle Rock Productions, presumably later this year.
Slash himself has commented, "London, that was a fucking blast! I'm glad we captured the night on video! Thanks for a truly memorable evening! RnFnR!"
The 22-song setlist from London was as follows:
"The Call Of The Wild"
"Standing In The Sun"
"Back From Cali"
"Serve You Right"
"Boulevard Of Broken Hearts"
"We're All Gonna Die" (Todd Kerns on vocals)
"Doctor Alibi" (Todd Kerns on vocals)
"Lost Inside The Girl"
"Wicked Stone" (extended guitar solo
"Mind Your Manners"
"By The Sword"
"You're A Lie"
"World On Fire"
