Slash - the iconic, Grammy-winning rock guitarist and songwriter – hits the UK with his second solo studio album, the eagerly anticipated ‘Apocalyptic Love’. The new album features Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators and will follow his 2010 debut album ‘Slash’, which has now sold over 100,000 copies in the UK alone, and his November 2011 first-ever live solo album, the two-CD/DVD set ‘Made In Stoke 24/7/11’. Notably, the ‘Slash’ album debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart at #3 (#1 on the Rock chart). Internationally, the disc achieved Top 5 chart positions in over a dozen major territories. Slash is widely considered one of the greatest rock guitar players of all time. He has received countless accolades and awards including his recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2012. In 2007, Slash was inducted into Hollywood’s RockWalk (located in front of Guitar Center in Hollywood) alongside his idols Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix. An original member of iconic rock band Guns N’ Roses, the Grammy-winning Slash helped the band create signature sounds like the guitar riff of #1 hit 'Sweet Child O’ Mine' and 'Welcome To The Jungle' with the band selling more than 100 million albums worldwide. After leaving the band, Slash went on to critical acclaim in his personal project Slash’s Snakepit and global success with the supergroup Velvet Revolver. He has been widely sought after by the biggest musicians of all time, performing with everyone from Michael Jackson to Stevie Wonder to Ray Charles. In February 2011, he performed at the Super Bowl XLV half time show, seen by more than 106 million people, becoming the most-watched program in US television history. On 'Apocalyptic Love', Slash - along with his bandmates Myles Kennedy (of Alter Bridge on vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass) - has teamed with producer Eric Valentine, who also produced the ‘Slash’ disc to come up with an incredible album of songs, full to the brim with hooks, riffs and of course that trademark guitar sound that is so unmistakeably Slash.
