SLASH Plays The Blues In Sherman Oaks; Video Available

Video footage of legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) playing the blues at Cozy's Bar & Grill in Sherman Oaks, California on January 11, 2010 can be viewed below.

Slash told the U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine in a new video interview that he may record a full rock album with BLACK EYED PEAS vocalist Fergie. Talking about collaborating with the singer on a track for his upcoming solo album, Slash said, "I'd written this one song which just sounded like her to me so I played it for her and she took it home and wrote these lyrics, and it's pretty much the first rock 'n' roll track she ever really recorded. People are gonna trip when they hear it . . . I might actually do a rock record with Fergie 'cause she wants to do a rock record."

The track Slash recorded with Fergie is called "Beautiful Dangerous", while the pair also cut a cover of GUNS N' ROSES' "Paradise City" also featuring CYPRESS HILL.

"Beautiful Dangerous" will appear on Slash's self-titled debut solo album, which is due out on April 6.

The album features a guest vocalist on every track, including Ozzy Osbourne, M. Shadows, Kid Rock, Chris Cornell, Dave Grohl, Lemmy Kilmister, Myles Kennedy, Iggy Pop and others in addition to Fergie.

Slash has also tapped Kennedy, lead vocalist in ALTER BRIDGE, as the singer for his upcoming solo tour, which will take place this spring. Kennedy was the frontrunner to sing with a possible LED ZEPPELIN offshoot band in 2008, although that project ultimately never got off the ground.

Slash also said that fans will be allowed to wear Axl Rose T-shirts to his shows, a reference to reports — since denied by Rose — that Slash gear was banned at recent GUNS N' ROSES gigs.
