Among the projects the guitarist has on the go these days is his second solo album. Slash and his touring band - Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge), rhythm guitarist Bobby Schneck, bassist Todd Kerns (Sin City Sinners, formerly of Age Of Electric), and drummer Brent Fitz (formerly of Theory Of A Deadman) – have been holed up at Barefoot Studios in LA with producer Eric Valentine getting the project together.
There’s now light at the end of the tunnel, according to Slash: "It looks like we'll be finished recording next week. Then mixing begins. It's all going on," he posted.
Naturally, there will be a tour, with Slash confirming that he’ll be one of the headliners at the Download Festival in June: “Looks like we're playing Download, Fri the 8th on the 2nd stage. We're headlining, so we can do a full set! R & Fn' R! iiiI; )',” posted Slash.
The guitar hero says tour dates are coming together and will be announced soon.
