‘Here’s to Us’ is the perfect anthem for the monster year that Halestorm are having. Kicking off 2013 with a Grammy win for ‘Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance’ followed by a successful tour with Bullet for My Valentine, the band has released a lyric video for their latest single from their 2012 album 'The Strange Case Of...' Given the memorable year the band has had, the song has taken on a whole new meaning.
Slash is looking to reunite with an "old friend," but this relationship comes strings attached … assuming that his onetime guitar still has strings. The guitar great is hoping that his extensive social networking and online following will help relocate one of his Les Paul guitars that he used back in the early '90s.
Hollywood was the place to be if you were a rocker looking to make it in the mid '80s. But not long before we were all welcomed to the jungle, Slash auditioned for the Bret Michaels-led Poison. In a 2010 interview with Classic Rock Revisited, Slash revealed that he had decided to quit the pre-Guns N' Roses band Hollywood Rose and was referred to Poison by their exiting guitarist at the time.
Rock supergroup Velvet Revolver has been struggling with lineup issues for quite some time now since parting with vocalist Scott Weiland. Conflicting stories on Weiland's place in the band have been prevalent for a year now, but Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash just made it public that the band is "very quietly" looking for a new singer.
For those wondering about the future of Stone Temple Pilots without Scott Weiland, the first clue will come later this month when the DeLeo brothers and drummer Eric Kretz perform at the MusiCares MAP Fund benefit in Los Angeles. The trio is being advertised as 'Members of Stone Temple Pilots,' lending credence to the notion that they'll be able to continue utilizing the band name without worry.
Guitar great Slash has a bit of a respite from his work with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, but he's never one to rest for too long. During his "downtime," Slash has been working on demos for his next album, putting the final touches on the upcoming horror film 'Nothing Left to Fear' and giving props to a little girl who mastered 'Sweet Child O' Mine' on YouTube. Slash appears on Loudwire Radio's Top 20 Countdown this weekend, and we've got a preview of his interview with host Mike "Sandman" Sanders below:
