Myles Kennedy Learned A Lot Working With Slash


(Classic Rock) Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy says that he has learned a lot about hard work from his time as lead vocalist for Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash's solo band.

And he's joked that both Slash and Alter Bridge axeman Mark Tremonti have lied about his own guitar skills. Meanwhile, he's hoping that 2017 will be the year his nearly-complete solo album is released - if schedules allow.

Alter Bridge will launch fifth album The Last Hero on October 7 and aim to spend much of the upcoming 12 months on the road. Kennedy tells Alternative Nation: "When we're preparing for a tour or a record, Slash will rehearse something over and over and over again. He just burns it into his brain. I've seen how that can have a positive impact on a performance and how a song comes across. I definitely try to incorporate that more now."

He intends to apply the lesson to Alter Bridge's upcoming press tour, which includes a number of acoustic sets. "It used to be that I'd just show up, grab the acoustic and play.

"Slash would insist we get together and practice acoustically, because it's a different arrangement. Little things like that have tweaked my perspective. I work harder because of it. He's instilled a certain work ethic for sure. He's amazing." Read more here.
