Slash Already Working On Third Solo Album

Written by Marc Zanotti on July 17, 2012

Not even two months have passed since Slash released his second solo record Apocalyptic Love via his own label DikHayd on May 21, 2012, but the former Guns N Roses guitarist is already chomping at the bit to work on his next LP.

Speaking to Rolling Stone after having his star added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Slash said he is feeling as creatively motivated as any other point in his career.

“I definitely feel like I’m cresting a certain wave in my career where I’m having a really great time, I love what I’m doing, I love the people I’m working with and I’m feeling very energized,” Slash says. “I haven’t had that feeling since when Guns started.”

“We’ve got the tour that’s gonna go into next year, we’re starting work on the next record.”

By ‘we’ Slash means Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, who Slash worked with on this latest record.

“It’s kind of a Cinderella story,” he said in reference to Kennedy and the Conspirators. “I had no idea this was going to be a band I was going to do things with – I thought it was a pickup band. It turned out to be really, from the get-go, this kickass band, and now it’s more like a group.”

“Ever since I went and did the solo record, it’s all been hugely forward-moving, energetic,” he said. “I’ve been really enjoying it,” Slash told Rolling Stone.

As pointed out by Loudwire, Slash is having one hell of a year. Aside from being honoured on the ‘Walk of Fame’, Slash was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of Guns N Roses, while Apocalyptic Love went on to debut at No. 4 on the Billboard album chart with the single You’re a Lie giving Slash his first No. 1 radio hit since releasing music as a solo artist.

Slash’s vocalist Myles Kennedy recently spoke to Pulse of Radio about the continued creativity that Slash and co are currently enjoying.

“There was never any kind of like, ‘OK, we need to sit down and focus on writing’… Just whenever ideas happened, I would just lay them down, and if I thought it was good enough to send to him, then I’d send it to him. And he miraculously would come up with melodies for everything I came up with, and it just happened like that,” Kennedy explained.

Slash will be back in Australia next month for a 5-date Australian tour.
