Slash, the legendary guitarist of Guns N’ Roses recently said he has no plans to break up with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators for Guns N’ Roses in a new Reddit AMA. He also called out an incorrect Dave Mustaine rumor, saying he didn’t ghost write Megadeth songs or albums for Dave Mustaine, despite jamming with him and rumors spreading. Here is what he said:
“I don’t think there’s a statute of limitations on becoming a professional guitarist… I have no knowledge of writing any Megadeth songs, but I did used to LOVE jamming with Dave. I don’t see any reason why I would stop making albums with SMKC.
“Whenever I have a musical idea that I send to the other guys, they just do their own interpretation of it. I don’t usually dictate what they should play, Frank Sidoris included. But when I write a new song, at the end of the day we all sort of complete the song together,” the guitarist added.
Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators new album, titled “4”, will be released on February 11 via Gibson Records in partnership with BMG. “4” is Slash’s fifth solo album and fourth overall with his band featuring Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass, vocals) and Frank Sidoris (guitar, vocals).
Slash shares a piece of advice with young musicians
It is not everyday that the up and coming musicians get a chance to interact with a legendary figure of the music industry. During a brand new interview with CNN Indonesia, Slash was asked to give advice to the young musicians who are just starting out. He opined the talents to stick to the music they are fond of. Here is what he said:
“The music industry has changed so much since I got into it. It’s hard to sort of give anybody any kind of real advice because I’m still trying to learn how to navigate the sort of new terrain. But I think the most important thing is to stick to the music that you really love — don’t let anybody try and tell you different — and then go and try and figure out how you can connect with an audience and the best way to make that possible and do what you have to do and be prepared to work really, really hard and to sacrifice everything in order to do what you love to do.”
