Slash To Mentor Finalists On American Idol’s Rock Week


May 1, 2009

This Tuesday, May 5th, Slash will be mentoring the top 4 finalists for American Idol’s ‘Rock Week!’ (tune in at 9pm on FOX.)

Slash states, “Hey all, as you may or may not know, the producers for American Idol have asked me to be the mentor for “Rock Week”. I was reluctant at 1st, but they offered me the freedom to do it however I wanted.

More importantly, there are a few singers this year who are really impressive. Its the 1st time any AI line-up has really caught my attention.

The approach I’m taking is different than usual on the show, & I’m going to make this as Rock & Roll an American Idol as possible, wish me luck!

Outside of that, things are going great in the studio, we are officially past the 1/2 way point, with some really cool collaborations coming up in the days & weeks ahead.

That’s really all that’s going on that’s fit to write about, I’m mostly working, but I’m having a great time.”
