Slash opens up on the new set
Slash noted that it has a ‘bunch of some cool’ live sets in it. Alternative Nation transcribed Slash’s comments. “It has a couple of live shows- The Ritz from the 90s and a show we did in Las Vegas.” It is quite special to him certainly as he had met his ex-wife at the show.
During the same conversation, Slash also spoke about playing two classic GNR songs, ‘Chinese Democracy’ and ‘Better’ from when he wasn’t in the band:
“The Chinese Democracy material was part of the set anyway, you know something Axl did do for a while. So we automatically planned on doing all that, and the old stuff. There wasn’t a discussion about it, it was about picking up which songs to do. It was very, very sort of a natural evolution.”
Slash recently revealed the unexpected inspiration behind his new single, Fill My World. Lifted from his upcoming album 4 with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, set to arrive February 11 via Gibson Records, according to the Guns N’ Roses guitarist, the song was actually written from the perspective of a dog. After writing and recording the riff for the song in the studio, GNR guitarist revealed that he was at first a little apprehensive about showing his creation to the rest of the band, due to its soft-centered sound.
