Matt Sorum (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N’ ROSES), Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N’ ROSES), Gilby Clarke (ex-GUNS N’ ROSES) and Wayne Kramer (MC5) are among the musicians who performed at the Road Recovery benefit concert honoring legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N’ ROSES) this past Tuesday, September 13 at Best Buy Theater in New York City. The event was a semi-reunion of sorts, with Sorum, McKagan and Slash having played in both VELVET REVOLVER and GUNS N’ ROSES, while Clarke played with them in GUNS during that band’s “Use Your Illusion”tour.
