Slash Wins Guitarist of the Year in the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards

Mary Ouellette,

Six-string legend Slash experienced a strong 2012, capping it all off with a Loudwire Music Award for Guitarist of the Year. Every opponent Slash went up against in this category was a worthy one, to say the least, but after a hard-fought battle with Mark Tremonti for the award, Slash emerged victorious.

In 2012, Slash released ‘Apocalyptic Love’ with Alter Bridge vocalist Myles Kennedy and backing band the Conspirators, capturing success thanks to his rabid fan base. Slash also made waves early in 2012 by not only receiving an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but facilitating a partial Guns N’ Roses reunion at the ceremony with various classic GN’R members joining the guitar god.

Congratulations to Slash for his many achievements in 2012, which led him to win this award. The guitarist has been at the top of his game for several decades, and we wish him the very best in keeping his hot streak going strong in 2013.
