Several Slash and GUNS N' ROSES fan sites joined forces to interview legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) when he played in Paris, France on June 20, 2010. You can now watch the chat below.Slash has tentatively set the first batch of North American tour dates in support of his self-titled solo album, which arrived earlier this spring. The trek will kick off on August 29 in San Francisco, with dates confirmed so far through October 2 in Seattle. Even before recruiting Kennedy for his solo project, Slash had heard about Kennedy for another gig. "It's interesting at this point to come full circle, you know, because I think Matt Sorum from VELVET REVOLVER had gone to him to audition him or, you know, try him out for VELVET REVOLVER, and because he was in ALTER BRIDGE he turned it down," he told The Pulse of Radio. "But apparently he auditioned, or he sent a demo in to VELVET REVOLVER before Scott Weiland, which I had no idea about. So it's an interesting story." The second single from the album, "Back from Cali", features guest vocals from Kennedy and will be released to radio in July. Scott Weiland was hired as VELVET REVOLVER's singer in 2003, making two albums with the band before his 2008 dismissal. Slash's solo album features guest vocals from a variety of artists, including Chris Cornell, Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie, Iggy Pop and AVENGED SEVENFOLD's M. Shadows, as well as instrumental contributions from Dave Grohl and Duff McKagan.
