It’s been four years since we last heard new music from Slash. But the guitarist has hardly spent that time relaxing—far from it, in fact. First, there was an 18-month, 20-country world tour in support of the second Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators album. Then, almost immediately after the tour wrapped in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve, 2015, it was announced to the world that the guitarist, after roughly two decades away, would be rejoining Guns N’ Roses in an historic reunion.
But even with all the reunion activity, Slash’s band was never far from his mind. “I always planned on getting back together with the Conspirators as soon as possible, and continuing on with what we started,” he says. This latest tour is in support of their new full length offering of the same name, Living the Dream. Joining Slash and Myles Kennedy is bassist Todd Kerns, drummer Brent Fitz and rhythm guitarist Frank Sidoris. The album is possibly the band’s strongest collective statement to date. From the barnstorming, high-octane riffery of opener “Call of the Wild” to the wah-drenched funk rock of “Read Between the Lines,” to the swaggering deep-in-the-pocket 70s grooves of “Serve You Right,” to the massive hooks and anthemic, singalong choruses of first single “Driving Rain,” all of it shot through with Slash’s trademark electrifying and dynamic riffing and high-wire, lyrical solos.
Slash and the band’s biggest chart topping hits include: “Apocalyptic Love”, “Living The Dream” and “World on Fire.”
