Iconic axeman Slash has been speaking to 93X Radio about plans for a new record. As the guitarist notes, while his current tour is almost over, he has no plans to take time to recuperate before starting work on the new album:
"There's no such thing as time off. [Myles Kennedy] is gonna go on the road with Alter Bridge and Im putting the material together for the new record. I've already written tons and tons of stuff. I've got to put it together as proper demos ... I've been recording everything on my voice memos. Anyway, I've got to put it together and get it out to Myles and we'll start jamming with Brent [Fitz] and Todd [Kerns]."
Slash also explained how he came to meet the members of his backing band, the Conspirators.
"I've got a killer group. Myles is killer ... It's the first time I've ever put together a group where I didn't know anybody in the band. I met Myles when I was making my first solo record. I wanted to continue working with him and then I went looking for the back-up band. I was pointed in the direction of Brent. I jammed with him and he was great and then he introduced me to Todd ... It turned out to be one of the best pick-up bands of all time."
