DirectTV’s show the ‘Guitar Center Sessions’ is setting the bar high with their first episode. Starring in the season kickoff, guitar superstar and recently crowned 'Riff Lord' Slash will perform an acoustic set with back-up support from Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators (Brent Fitz on drums and Todd Kerns on bass).
Guns N’ Roses were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this month, and unless you’ve been living under a boulder of sorts, you already know that Axl Rose opted out of the festivities. During a press conference in Italy in support of his upcoming solo album, 'Apocalyptic Love,' Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash was questioned about that night and his feelings about Rose not being present. All in all, he kept his response positive.
Myles Kennedy on Slash and Alter Bridge
It wasn't the Guns N' Roses reunion that everyone wanted, but with Axl Rose flipping the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the bird earlier this week, the next best thing happened at the induction ceremony on Saturday (April 14). Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler, Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke rocked three 'Appetite for Destruction' songs with singer Myles Kennedy.
With a little over a month to go before Slash unleashes his 'Apocalyptic Love' on the world, he's cranking up the promotional machine in earnest -- and last night (April 10), that meant showing up on the big stage at 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' to perform a couple of songs, including his new single 'You're a Lie.'
Slash is set to release the first single off his upcoming album to radio on Monday, Feb. 27, but he's offering a 30-second sneak listen to the tune right now (hear it below). The song, 'You're a Lie,' is the first taste of the guitarist's second 'solo' album 'Apocalyptic Love,' due May 22.
