SLASH On Classic GUNS N' ROSES Lineup: One Of The Guys 'Screwed The Whole Thing Up'
Lamont and Sully of the "Lamont And Tonelli Show", which airs on the Bay Area rock station 107.7 The Bone, conducted an interview with legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) this past Tuesday (August 24). You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
When asked about his memories of the classic GUNS N' ROSES lineup and the group's eventual break-up, Slash said, "It was an awesome band. I'm very, very proud to have been part of that unit, of that group of people. It had a particular chemistry to it and a particular bunch of personalities that made it all work. Unfortunately, one of the guys just had no clue what that meant and screwed the whole thing up. [Laughs]"
Slash's all-star collaborations album, simply titled "Slash", scored the highest new entry on The Billboard 200 chart in early April, with first-week U.S. sales of around 60,000 copies. TheCD, which was released in North America on April 6 via EMI Label Services, features an all-star roster of guest musicians, including Ian Astbury, Chris Cornell, Rocco DeLuca, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Myles Kennedy, Kid Rock, Lemmy Kilmister, Adam Levine, Duff McKagan, M. Shadows of AVENGED SEVENFOLD, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, and Andrew Stockdale of WOLFMOTHER.
As previously reported, bassist Tony Montana (GREAT WHITE) filled in for Todd Kerns as a member of Slash's touring band during the group's Asia/Australia tour.
Kerns, who also plays guitar and sings for SIN CITY SINNERS, underwent surgery on July 16 for a retinal detachment in his right eye.
Slash's Asian tour kicked off on July 29 at the Asia World Expo in Hong Kong.
