Alter Bridge vocalist Myles Kennedy recently talked about the legendary Guns N’ Roses member Slash with whom he first collaborated in 2009.
Myles Kennedy talks about Slash
Kennedy has fronted the Guns N’ Roses guitarist’s solo band since 2010 and he was recently asked in a new interview with Anne Erickson of Audio Ink Radio if he thinks Slash will continue to create music with The Conspirators for years to come, and he isn’t so sure. Myles responded: “That’s a good question. I honestly don’t know. I think that we’re all really grateful and to some degree surprised by the run that we’ve had.”
He continued: “When I first signed on to do [the song] ‘Starlight’ [with Slash] back in 2009, and then we ended up doing ‘Back From Cali’ [for Slash’s self-titled solo album], I thought that would pretty much be it. And then he brought up, ‘Well, let’s just do a tour together,’ and I thought, ‘Okay, there’ll be a tour and that’ll be it.’ But if you had told me that 12 years down the road, 13 years down the road we would have had this long run and multiple records and tour the world a number of times, I would have been blown away. So, I guess time will tell how that continues.”
Kennedy sang lead vocals on a pair of songs that appeared on Slash’s eponymous solo debut album in 2010 before taking a more central role — under the Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators banner — on 2012’s “Apocalyptic Love”, 2014’s “World On Fire”, 2018’s “Living The Dream” and 2022’s “4”.
