Legendary guitarist Slash has revealed via Twitter that he will reunite with his onetime GUNS N' ROSES bandmate Steven Adler to "lay down some guitars" for a song on the drummer's new album. The session is scheduled to take place tonight (Thursday, March 15) at a studio in Los Angeles.
In 2010, Adler collaborated with Slash on the latter's self-titled debut solo album, which scored the highest new entry on The Billboard 200 chart, with first-week U.S. sales of around 60,000 copies. He appeared on the track "Baby Can't Drive", along with RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS bassist Flea, Alice Cooper and Nicole Scherzinger. The song was featured on an expanded edition of the album released by Classic Rock magazine.
Slash, Adler, bassist Duff McKagan, singer Axl Rose and guitarist Izzy Stradlin will all be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame next month in Cleveland, along with later GUNS N' ROSES members, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and drummer Matt Sorum.
Adler revealed last year that he was working on "an original band" with ADLER'S APPETITE guitarist Michael Thomas and Lonnie Johnson. He added, "Our first single has one of the hottest new singers in the game right now on vocals. Hint: his band's initials are just like mine — AA." [Presumably referring to ASKING ALEXANDRIA. — Ed.]
Adler's new band entered NRG Recording in North Hollywood, California in September to begin recording its first material.
