Alter Bridge France conducted an interview with ALTER BRIDGE and SLASH singer Myles Kennedy prior to Slash‘s February 28 concert in Nottingham, England. You can now watch the chat below.
Kennedy divides his time between ALTER BRIDGE, who are working on their fourth studio set, and Slash, for whom he fronts Slash‘s touring and recording group MYLES KENNEDY THE CONSPIRATORS.
Slash, Kennedy and THE CONSPIRATORS have recently completed nearly a year’s worth of touring behind “Apocalyptic Love”.
The Pulse Of Radio asked Kennedy if there’s been anything he’s learned about himself as a musician as a result of working with both ALTER BRIDGE and Slash. “You know, I think I’ve gradually learned to become more of a frontman than I was initially,” he said. “I mean, when I first started, especially playing with ALTER BRIDGE, you know, I really considered myself more a guitar player who sang. As the years have gone on, and then especially once I started playing with Slash and I was pretty much for the entire set without a guitar, learning to evolve into more of a front guy. I don’t consider myself the greatest by any means, I just — I’m starting to feel more comfortable with it.”
ALTER BRIDGE‘s last studio offering, “AB III”, came out in 2010 and included the hits “Isolation” and “Ghost Of Days Gone By”.
During ALTER BRIDGE‘s break, Tremonti recorded his first solo album, “All I Was”, and toured behind it, while Kennedy recorded all the vocals for Slash‘s second solo effort, “Apocalyptic Love”, and toured the world as part of his live band.
Tremonti, ALTER BRIDGE drummer Scott Phillips and bassist Brian Marshall have also toured as part of their original act, CREED, who have also been working on new material.
