    Haven't heard anything about a new VH record. I liked 'A Different Kind Of Truth', and saw them live on the tour. The band was solid

    I don't know if Daves voice can survive another tour ... Even for an old guy, he wasn't sounding too hot

    While not a guitar god to everyone, Slash turns 50 this year (July 23rd). Who'd have thought he'd make it that long?

    Almost forty years later and he still has one of the sickest tones ever to come out of a Marshall stack..... To think this was happening when disco music & the Bee Gees ruled the world, just boggles the mind


    ....the chord he hits at 3:24 is just brutal

    Fun fact: Slash used the guitar solos from Manfred Mann's "Blinded By The Light" and Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street" as the inspiration for his solo in "Sweet Child O' Mine"
