Slash and Friends Details
Slash took to his Myspace page to update fans again this week. Aside from an update about his solo album, this time he gives details about the upcoming Slash and Friend Event at the Mirage in Las Vegas, where he was asked to perform to mark the 20th anniversary of the hotel and casino.
Here is what he had to say about that: “there are a lot of posts about the upcoming Vegas event, but the actual line-up for the Mirage gig Oct 2nd is: Tommy Clufetos on drums, Johnny Griparic on bass, Ted “Zig Zag” Andreadis on keys, John 5 on guitar, myself on guitar & Franky Perez, vocals. That, is basically the house band, my special guests that night are, more or less in this order: Rocco Deluca, Nicole Scherzinger, Courtney Love, Rick Nielson, Robin Zander & Joe Perry. Also, Matt Sorum is jamming a couple songs + there will be some other surprises.
“I also just got confirmation that the Joe Perry Project is playing as well, it promises to be a bitchin’ evening. tickets are available through Mirage Entertainment on the Mirage website.
“And, there is another gig I’m putting together for November 22nd for LA Youth Network or “LAYN” at the Henry Fonda Theater, I’ll have line-up details for that event, which is a fund raiser & an awesome cause, soon enough.
“Meanwhile, the solo record is in its mixing stage & the mixes to this point sound great. We have recorded 18 songs with one more I want to track in the next couple weeks. Regardless, the record is still slated for a Feb/March release.
Btw, a friend of mine hipped me to a wikkipedia site that focuses on the development of this album, the details of which are actually pretty accurate, although almost all of the alleged song titles are incorrect. Also, Jason Bonham does not appear on this album. Other than that its pretty right on.
