Slash's New Album Is A Band Effort Not A Solo One
"I'm a band guy. Everything I touch I turn into a f---ing band," the former Guns N' Roses axeman told Rolling Stone. "I still have my name on the marquee and everything, but I'm just not a dictator, I don't want to rule anything. I like to hear what other people's ideas are and so on and so forth."
On the new album (and forthcoming tour), Slash worked with singer-guitarist Myles Kennedy, drummer Brent Fitz and bassist Todd Kerns. He wrote the new songs with Kennedy and everyone is welcome to offer creative ideas, he said. "I realized I was a band guy when I was 15 when I only knew like four licks and two chords and I started a band," Slash said. "I like working in a band atmosphere, I think something about that camaraderie. I do not want to do it all by myself. I'm like that with everything else, I don't want to do that with music. more on this story
