Slash Heads Down Rebel Road With Edgar Winter


May 20, 2008

Glam-blues superstar Edgar Winter’s new album is going to have a few special treats on it, including cameos from Slash, country singer Clint Black and his brother Johnny Winter.

“The idea was to make a classic American rock album similar to the kind I used to back in the 70s,” he says. “I believe music is about following your heart as opposed to trends and second guessing What you think the public wants to hear. I wanted to put out an album that felt real to me, regardless of what’s going on in today’s music world. I think artists who play music that comes from the heart and that they believe in will communicate with people. What’s missing in music today is not only real rock and roll, but the Southern style rock that Johnny and I grew up playing in Texas. Country music has come in to fill the vacuum of honesty and sincerity, and I wanted to contribute to this kind of musical integrity in my own way.”

The album, entitled ‘Rebel Road’ will be released through Airlane Records, although there is no official release date as of yet.

Winter will be on tour across the States in support of this record, both on his own and as part of Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band.
