SLASH's Solo Album Certified Platinum In Australia

VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash's all-star collaborations album, simply titled "Slash", was certified platinum by the Australian Record Industry Association (ARIA) for sales in excess of 70,000 copies. A plaque commemorating the achievement was presented to Slash by Sony on Monday (February 28) during his tour of the country as part of the Soundwave festival.

"Slash" was released in North America in April 2010 via EMI Label Services. The album 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 of MAROON 5, Duff McKagan, M. Shadows of AVENGED SEVENFOLD, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, and Andrew Stockdale of WOLFMOTHER.

"Slash" was produced by Eric Valentine (QUEENS OF STONE AGE, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS) and was completed with the rhythm section of bassist Chris Chaney (JANE'S ADDICTION) and drummer Josh Freese (NINE INCH NAILS).
