Slash Guests In Michael Monroe's 'I Live Too Fast To Die Young' Video
(hennemusic) Michael Monroe has released a video for the title track to his latest album, "I Live Too Fast To Die Young", which features a guest appearance by Slash on lead guitar.
"Slash is one of the nicest guys that I know and one of rock's greatest guitarists as he's maintained the spontaneity, the human touch and the heartfelt kick-ass attitude in his playing" says Monroe. "I figured this would be a good one for him to play a solo on, he said he loved the song and that it's super catchy!"
"Having Slash play an absolutely ripping guitar solo on it was a real honor," adds guitarist Rich Jones, "and it's since become a fan favorite in our live shows."
Monroe recorded his tenth studio set at Inkfish Studios in Helsinki, Finland between November and December 2021.
"This one started life as just a song title - a tongue-in-cheek nod to Vivienne Westwood's 'Too Fast To Live, Too Young To Die' t-shirts after I had been gifted one by a fan in Japan," explains Jones about the inspiration for the song. "It's a reference to Michael's seemingly boundless energy and the fact that he's still kicking ass after all these years."
