The cover art for Slash’s first solo album was created by the one and only artist, Ron English, who has now re-created a fiberglass bust of that image. In collaboration with the prestigious Hong Kong sculpture house, Garage Works, the approximately 15″ tall English Slash bust is being released on April 8th, and there will only be 10 pieces available.
Check out the new interactive video player for “Anastasia” which includes guitar tabs for the entire song.
Check out the song “So Long Sin City” that Slash composed with Mark Lanegan for the film, This Is Not A Movie (2011), directed by Olalla Rubio, and starring Edward Furlong, Peter Coyote, Miguel Ferrer, and more
Slash and Guitar Center are pleased to announce Philadelphia, PA based rock band MACH22 as the grand prize winner of the fourth installment of Guitar Center OnStage.

Thousands entered for the chance to score these few, coveted opening gigs, hoping for the chance to eventually earn Guitar Center’s OnStage grand prize, but ultimately only one could win. Now, after months of touring and much deliberation, MACH22 have been named the Grand Prize winners.

- $10k in guitars from Gibson and Epiphone

Produced by Eric Valentine, who also did the same honors for his first solo disc Slash, all the songs on APOCALYPTIC LOVE were written together by Slash and Myles Kennedy. SLASH and his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators–Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass) and Frank Sidoris (guitar)–are riding a wave of critical acclaim with a four-star review in Revolver magazine noting: “Apocalyptic Love is at heart a collection of lean, high-octane rock-and-roll tunes built to be blasted out of open-top sports cars or, more suitably, open-air stadiums” (July 2012). Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Times said: “Fans of his work in GNR and Velvet Revolver will find much to embrace in the album’s 13 tracks, ranging from the sneering rock hooks of ‘You’re a Lie’ and the heavy metal grind of ‘Halo’ to the extended instrumental passages on ‘Anastasia’” (May 24, 2012)
