Slash Says New Solo Album Could Be Out In December
March 7, 2011
Legendary guitarist Slash told Triple M’s Higgo backstage at Melbourne’s Soundwave Festival that fans can expect his next solo album to be out as early as December.
In between Slash and Higgo bumping heads about their iPhone/Blackberry rivalry and Slash grabbing Higgo’s phone to play ‘Slayer pinball’, the former Guns N’ Roses guitarist managed to confirm that his touring band – including Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy – would record the whole album.
Unlike his self-titled 2010 solo release, Slash said there would be no special guest collaborations.
“That was just that one-off record where I wanted to just work with a bunch of people,” Slash told Triple M.
“I did so much session work so I had to get it out of my system, now I’ve got it out of my system, so now I’m going to go and just do a regular record.”
Slash said that most of the writing for the upcoming album would be done on the road.
“When we get done with this (Soundwave tour), he (Kennedy) goes to (tour with) Alter Bridge then when he gets done with Alter Bridge, we go out on the road again,” Slash said.
“And in the meantime we’re just writing individually and then we just compile everything, at some point in December we’ll have everything together.”
