Red Carpet Roxy conducted separate interviews with Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES), Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES), Dave Navarro (JANE'S ADDICTION) and Tom Morello (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE) at a benefit concert on November 22, 2009 at the Avalon in Hollywood, California. The show, billed as "Slash & Friends", was a fundraiser for the Los Angeles Youth Network (LAYN) is a non-profit organization providing services to homeless and runaway youth. Watch the clips below.

Slash was joined by two other ex-members of the original GUNS N' ROSES lineup, as well as Ozzy Osbourne, LINKIN PARK's Chester Bennington and others, at the gig. At one point in the show, Slash was joined onstage by former GUNS drummer Steven Adler and bassist Duff McKagan for a rendition of the GUNS tune "Paradise City" with Bennington on vocals, making for perhaps the highest concentration of original GUNS members to share a stage together in years.

According to, other guests at the show included RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE axeman Tom Morello, singer Billy Idol and JANE'S ADDICTION guitarist Dave Navarro.

Slash has enlisted a number of rock and pop luminaries to appear on his upcoming self-titled solo album, tentatively due out in April.

Among the artists appearing on the album are Dave Grohl, Flea, Chris Cornell, Duff McKagan, WOLFMOTHER's Andrew Stockdale, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Nicole Scherzinger, Meat Loaf, MAROON 5's Adam Levine and Ozzy Osbourne, who contributes vocals to the first single.
