According to The Pulse Of Radio, Slash has written on Twitter that he’s already thinking ahead to his third solo album, even though it’s been less than year since his sophomore effort, “Apocalyptic Love”, arrived. Slash posted, “Coming up with a lot of cool shit for new songs and a ton of cool ideas recorded from the tour. Going to start putting them together.” He later added that ALTER BRIDGE fans could rest assured that singer Myles Kennedy would record their new album before getting back together with Slash, saying, “AB fans have no cause for worry. They will soon release a new CD and tour this year. I will catch Myles on the flip side.”
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”.
In other news, Slash joined Steven Tyler and Joe Perry to play AEROSMITH‘s “Mama Kin” on Sunday afternoon (March 10) at the West Hollywood store of fashion designer John Varvatos. The event was Varvatos‘ 10th annual benefit for Stuart House, a facility to help children who have been sexually abused. Tyler and Perry, backed by other musicians, ran through an hour-long set of AEROSMITH classics for an audience that included Alice Cooper, Eddie Van Halen, Billy Idol, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and more.
Slash has been keeping himself busy by creating his own version of the theme song to the “Angry Birds” video game as well as appearing as a character in the game. He’s also confirmed his participation in the “Band Fuse: Rock Legends” video game. Slash has also composed the score for “Nothing To Fear”, the first movie from his Slasher Films production company, which went into production last year but has yet to be released.
