SLASH To Begin Pre-Production On New Solo Album

Legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) writes on his Facebook page that he will begin pre-production on his new solo album next week with drummer Brent Fitz and bassist Todd Kerns from his current touring band. "[I am] really looking forward to it," the axeman says.

In a May 2011 interview with Planet Rock, Slash revealed that his new solo album will be released next spring.

Another record has been mooted for some time but this was the first time that Slash talked about the schedule for its release.

Although ALTER BRIDGE vocalist Myles Kennedy sang just two tracks on Slash's self-titled solo debut, Slash recently confirmed that Myles will sing everything on the guitarist's next solo effort.

Speaking to Nicky Horne, he revealed, "Myles and I have been writing all throughout the tour so we've got a lot of material, and at this point we're probably gonna start a little bit of pre-production in June and then do the tour in July. In September we're going to [do more] pre-production and the album is slated to come out in March or April."

In a recent interview with The Pulse Of Radio, Kennedy said about the fact that Slash would like him to handle the lead vocals on the guitarist's next CD, "It's very flattering. I think there's kind of a cool thing we got going. We really enjoy working with each other."

Slash's debut disc came out last year and featured a different singer on each track, including Chris Cornell, Ozzy Osbourne, M. Shadows and others.
