Editorial Reviews

US LP pressing. Anybody who is the least bit familiar with rock music will associate the name Slash with that of a legendary rock guitarist and icon. As the former lead guitarist of mega-rock group Guns `N' Roses, Slash has had a dominant presence in music for more than twenty years. Referred to by many as one of the greatest and most influential guitar players of all time, Slash's signature style and commanding guitar mastery has impacted not only millions of fans around the world, but many of his fellow artists - in all genres of music. Slash's various projects over the years have included the multi-platinum global rock band Velvet Revolver as well as guest guitarist and collaborator for a countless list of artists including Lenny Kravitz, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, the Yard birds, Sammy Hagar and more. Add soundtrack albums and his most recent success via the video game best-seller Guitar Hero to truly begin to appreciate the legacy Slash has established through this point in his career. Slash has always been the artist others seek and invite to collaborate with on their material... now, for the first time, Slash will do the inviting. "Slash", Slash's first solo release, is a collection of new songs written in partnership with some of the most notable and legendary artists in music. After first enlisting the services of producing partner Eric Valentine (Queens of Stone Age, The All-America n Rejects), Slash compiled a premier rhythm section in bassist Chris Chaney (Jane's Addiction) and drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nai ls). The album features an all-star roster of guest musicians including Ian Astbury of The Cult, Chris Cornell, Rocco DeLuca , Fergie, Dav e Grohl, Myles Kennedy of Alterbridge, Kid Rock, Lemmy Kilmeister of Motorhead, Ada m Levine of Maroon 5, Duff McKaga n, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, and Andrew Stockda le of Wolfmother. Slash handled the majority of arranging and song writing duties and handpicked each guest artist to collaborate with on rounding out each track.

Customer Reviews

Ever since I read in Slash's book that he planned to do a "Slash and Friends" record I looked forward to the day it happened. Well that day is here, albeit under a different title. "Slash and Friends" was kind of a corny name anyway; the self-titled Slash is much cooler. Although I wouldn't be surprised to see this record's name ultimately default to the little inscription on the cover that reads "R&FNR". In fact that's exactly how I will refer to it for the rest of this review.

And R&FNR is certainly an apt title, because this is a great Rock and FN Roll record. You get a nice array of rock musicians combined with a nice array of rock vocalists to lift Slash to what I hope will be a big selling record for the guy. It goes without saying that Slash rips it up on every song. I dare say that R&FNR may be Slash's best recording since Appetite for Destruction...okay, at least Contraband.

Slash is joined by many different players across the 14 tracks included on the Amazon MP3 release, including to name a few: most of his former GNR members (except Axl), Dave Grohl & supposedly Travis Barker (but darned if I can figure out or find info on exactly which song(s) it is that Barker is playing on). And on vocals, the guest appearances and songs sound like this:

1. "Ghost" featuring Ian Astbury of The Cult. Great hard rocker to start the record.
2. "Crucify the Dead" with Ozzy. 'Slow & go' rocker with Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters banging the drums.

Having recorded five albums with Guns N' Roses, two with Slash's Snakepit and two with Velvet Revolver, Slash finally unleashes his first solo album, with a motley collection of players. "Slash" (2010) features a cast of newer cats such as Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge), and Adam Levine (Maroon 5) and veterans such as Ian Astbury (the Cult) and Ozzy Osbourne.

"Slash" is a highly diverse album that should have something for everyone, as the album doesn't have a lot of repetition, as each song is a unique collaboration between Slash and the guest artist featured on the track. Bassist Chad Chaney (Jane's Addiction) and John Freese (A Perfect Circle, Guns N' Roses, Nine Inch Nails) round out the band.

1. Ghosts (featuring Ian Astbury). A great mid-tempo opener that wouldn't have been out of place on the Cult's "Electric" (1987) album. Great to see Slash and Izzy rock once more.

2. Crucify the Dead (featuring Ozzy Osbourne). A bluesy, haunting vintage Ozzy-rocker that really wouldn't sound out-of-place on any of his albums. Although Slash has denied it, with lyrics like "A loaded gun jammed by a rose, the thorns are not around your head, your ego cursed you till you bled," it's hard not to believe this song isn't about Axl.

3. Beautiful Dangerous (featuring Fergie). The album takes a real left-turn with this song which sounds a bit like the band Garbage. When I first heard that Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas would be singing on this album, I was not impressed, to say the least. Seemed like a totally lame idea--an obvious attempt at creating a cross-over hit. That said, "Beautiful Dangerous" totally rocks. Fergie actually has a powerful voice that fits the song really well. The song has a great hook and should be an obvious choice to use as a single.

I don't want to do a song by song review. But just note that each track has a style catered to each featuring artist, but still remaining very "Slash".
It's almost like Slash was making tribute or homage to his current favorites.
How good is this album? I hate the Black Eyed Peas, I can't stand Fergie most of the time...but I am eating crow right now. "Beautiful Dangerous" featuring Fergie is turning into one of my favorite tracks.
I really hope they can perform this live somewhere, perhaps another late night gig. The energy she brings must be seen.

Well done Slash, I see myself playing this album for weeks on end.

I bought this CD without an expectation, I was there in the 80's when Gn'R came out but those years have been long gone and have not followed Slash all that closely. It is good to see that Slash has evolved and is not affraid to venture into different territory. I found most of the songs on this CD quite tasteful and well arranged, I am not a fan of Fergie and cringed when I saw Adam Levine's name but it turns out Adam delivers the song incredibly well.
Don't get me wrong, my favorite song is still Doctor Alibi with Lemmy, as I am mainly a rocker but I am really pleased with this record as a listener and as a guitarist.

You just can't have an 80's mullet forever you know? at some point it started looking ridiculous.

At first I laughed when I read that Slash had his 1st solo cd coming out. I had always considered the 2 Snakepit records to be his solo albums, but I guess he didn't. Then I read that "Slash" would feature different lead singers on each track and I knew I wouldn't like it. After seeing the list of guest vocalists, many of whom I'd heard of but never actually heard (like Andrew Stockdale and Adam Levine), I knew the album would be awful.

Boy was I wrong. From the opening riff of "Ghost," a track sung by Ian Astbury of the Cult (with rhythm guitars by Izzy), I realized this disc had some potential. After hearing it in its' entirety, I'm waaay impressed. This cd is the equivalent of putting your iPod on shuffle and hearing 14 really good and really different tunes.

Highlights include the aforementioned "Ghost," "Beautiful Dangerous" featuring Fergie, "By the Sword" (Adam Stockdale), "Gotten" (Adam Levine) and "Back to Cali"(Myles Kennedy. The only track that does nothing for me is "Saint is a Sinner Too" by Rocco de Luca. That one seems to go nowhere, but that's OK. It's surrounded by 13 other great rock songs that cover so much ground musically while still being full-on rock.
