SLASH, STEVEN ADLER, FLEA In The Studio; Photos Available

Photos of RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS bassist Flea and ex-GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler in the studio laying down tracks for Slash's new solo album have been posted on Adler's MySpace page.

The VELVET REVOLVER and one-time GUNS N' ROSES axeman wrote in an online post, "Steven Adler played on the first of the last three tracks yesterday, along with Flea on bass. The song kicks ass and the drums and bass sound so recognizable and sound so fucking good. Steven is staying clean, which is great; Flea is just amazing, period."

Slash wrote that he, Flea and Adler all met in West Hollywood years ago, adding, "We had a great time reminiscing about when we all first started playing rock and roll and how school didn't fit into the plan. We were like 15."

Slash also mentioned that another former GUNS bandmate, guitarist Izzy Stradlin, has played on a track for the album, saying, "It was good to see him; it's been awhile. Our guitars together really do have a sound all their own."

Although Slash has not officially confirmed other guests on the album, reported guest vocalists include Ozzy Osbourne, Chris Cornell, Iggy Pop, Fergie and AVENGED SEVENFOLD's M. Shadows.

Slash has been recording the album, which he hopes to release later this year, with ex-JANE'S ADDICTION bassist Chris Chaney and former NINE INCH NAILS drummer Josh Freese as his rhythm section.

Slash also mentioned that he did the scoring for an upcoming film called "This Is Not A Movie", starring Edward Furlong and Peter Coyote. The film does not yet have a release date.

VELVET REVOLVER is currently searching for a replacement for singer Scott Weiland, who was dismissed in April 2008.
