A documentary featuring the legendary VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash will be released on on Blu-ray on August 21 via Pride.
A two-disc set with a running time of 131 minutes, “Slash – The Cat In The Hat: The Story So Far” is described as follows: “The most iconic rock guitarist since Keith Richards, Slash has achieved the status of ‘most interesting hard rock act in the world today’. And 20 years after the demise proper of the group with whom he made his name, he continues to build on an already remarkable career trajectory, while his old sparring partner in GUNS N’ ROSES produces pale imitations of past glories. This two-disc set includes a DVD documentary tracing the life and times of Slash, and a disc of audio interviews with the Cat himself during which he speaks candidly and honestly on almost everything he feels strongly about.”
Slash‘s second solo album, “Apocalyptic Love”, is likely to sell between 30,000 and 35,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on May 22 via Slash‘s own label Dik Hayd International distributed through EMI.
