SLASH WORKING WITH IZZY STRADLIN ON SOLO ALBUM
June 1, 2009
Guitarist Slash revealed on Twitter that he is working with his former Guns N’ Roses bandmate Izzy Stralin. Slash posted, “Izzy is down here putting some rhythm gtr on a track, sounds fucking cool. There is an unmistakable sound that me & Izzy’s guitars make when performed together.”
A few days ago Slash also stated that the vocals are almost finished recording for his upcoming solo album with the following post:
“Hey all, how’s it going? I’ve been really busy with recording etc, I haven’t been keeping in touch.
Outside of working on the record things have been quiet. No Velvet Revolver updates as of this writing, but I’m anxious to see something happen with an amazing frontman for the band in the not too distant future, whoever that might be.
My gig at the Quart Fest is coming up in Norway, June 30th. Which, is starting to come together. I’ll post who all’s playing next week, but it’s a great line-up and the songs so far are shaping up to be a really great set.
As far as the record goes, we’re almost done with vocals, 2 more songs left and a couple odds and ends. Then, I can stand back and see what we’ve got. It is a fucking awesome ensemble, that much I do know, with brilliant performances from each and every singer. I do hope to have a release date soon, but I can assure you, as I said before, it won’t be this year. It will, most definitely, be out be very early in the new year. Even though the recording process is almost done, the legal logistics involved with so many different artists takes a minute to iron out.
When the record is released I plan on posting what gear was used on what songs; guitars, amps etc. Although, most of it was done with one guitar and 2 amps. A lot of interesting mike set-ups though. The record is being recorded anolog as well, this might be one of the last rock and roll records to be recorded that way, no joke. So, of course, I have to release it on vinyl, as well as cd.
Right then, I guess that’s it. I’ll have the Quart Fest line-up for you guys next week and anything else that comes up as well, have a good one.”
