Skratch conducted an interview with Slash during the legendary VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist's recent visit to Singapore. You can now watch the chat below.
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) is filling 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 and will be out of commission for the next several weeks. He previously stated, "I have been playing almost every night for God knows how many years now and the idea of not doing so for a while is a bit unnerving. I plan to make the best of it."
Slash's Asian tour kicked off on July 29 at the Asia World Expo in Hong Kong.
