SLASH Filming 'Gotten' Video This Weekend

Legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) is filming a video this weekend for a remixed version of the song "Gotten". The track, which features lead vocals by Adam Levine of MAROON 5, originally appeared on Slash's last self-titled album, which was released in North America in April 2010 via EMI Label Services.

"Gotten" was remixed in Astound Sound and will be released soon in support of the Los Angeles Youth Network (LAYN) charity.

LAYN's mission is to end homelessness, one kid at a time, by providing shelter, food and counseling for the abused, neglected and abandoned.

"Slash" featured an all-star roster of guest musicians, including Levine, Ian Astbury (THE CULT), Chris Cornell (SOUNDGARDEN), Rocco DeLuca, Fergie (BLACK EYED PEAS), Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS), Myles Kennedy (ALTER BRIDGE), Kid Rock, Lemmy Kilmister (MOTÖRHEAD), Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES), M. Shadows (AVENGED SEVENFOLD), Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, and Andrew Stockdale (WOLFMOTHER).

In a 2010 interview with iHeartRadio (see video below), Slash stated about the experience of working with Levine on "Gotten", "Adam Levine really surprised me just because he's so skilled as a vocalist. He came in and sang the song, and it was, basically, a one-take, perfect vocal. We stopped in between a couple of times, but we didn't have to go fix anything, we didn't have to do any tuning or any of that kind of stuff, and it was really just amazing to watch somebody go and pull that off, for that kind of a vocal."

Slash and his backing band — which includes Myles Kennedy — are putting the finishing touches on the legendary axeman's second solo album.

Early song titles for Slash's sophomore effort include "Bad Rain", "Halo", "Standing In The Sun" and "Far And Away". The record is expected to arrive this spring.
