Musicians

SLASH—the iconic American rock guitarist, songwriter and film producer–has amassed album sales of over 100 million copies, garnered a GRAMMY Award and seven GRAMMY nominations and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

SLASH helped create signature sounds like the guitar riff on #1 hits for Guns N’ Roses “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Welcome To The Jungle.” After leaving the band, SLASH went on to critical acclaim with SLASH’s Snakepit and global success with the supergroup Velvet Revolver before embarking on his own solo career.

Time magazine recently named SLASH #2, behind Jimi Hendrix, on its “Ten Best Electric Guitar Players of All-Time” list.

Singer, songwriter, and guitarist MYLES KENNEDY has been lead vocalist of Alter Bridge since 2003. In late 2009, Kennedy started to collaborate with SLASH, and he was featured on two tracks of SLASH's self-titled debut solo album in 2010. SLASH's second solo album, 2012's Apocalyptic Love, was a joint collaboration with Kennedy, with Kennedy as the album's sole lead vocalist. Kennedy was also the stand-in vocalist for Axl Rose when Guns N' Roses performed at their 2012 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

SLASH and his band, MYLES KENNEDY and The Conspirators unleashed their current album WORLD ON FIRE to worldwide praise garnering SLASH some of the best critical acclaim of his career. SLASH’s third straight solo album to debut in the Top Ten, WORLD ON FIRE achieved over 12 Top Ten chart debuts around the world.
