Slash gave Aerosmith kind of praise for turning his band into a better outfit during their summer US tour together.
As the axeman points out in his exclusive interview with Ultimate-Guitar.com, he has been on the road with the veteran rockers on their "Let Rock Rule" tour, and he insists he'll sound superior when he hits the UK in November as a result of their influence.
"It's been an amazing experience," he said. "Those guys have been heroes of mine ever since I was a teenager - and also because they're just such a great f--king band.
"I think it's really upped our game playing with those guys. Our tour in November will be that much better as a result of having played with Aerosmith."
He also reveals he decided to record upcoming third solo album "World on Fire" on tape as he feels the sound surpasses that of digital audio.
He says: "When it comes to sounds, I find tape better. Drums sound better and guitars sound warmer - if you can get somebody who knows how to work a tape machine."
