Frontman Blues

Quite possibly one of the more shocking album drops I’ve seen of late, none other than Slash – man behind some of the beautiful noise of ’80s pop icons G ‘n’ R and MJ – has a solo album coming out this Tuesday. No joke. And, it’s chock full o’ legends like Lemmy from Mötorhead, Sen from Cyrpess Hill, Ozzy, Iggy and upcoming legends like Wolfmother. Unfortunately, it also has the likes of Kid Rock and Fergie, but I love how Slash has always seemed one rock star to bridge the pop/metal gap. I hope this record can do just that. Check out a trailer with a behind the scenes look at the recording and the shadowy, nose-ringed hair god himself. (And, is it just me, or does one of the tracks here sound like a reworking of “Paradise City?”)
