The man responsible for some of rock’s most iconic riffery...
It isn’t your everyday Staffordshire-born lad that gets a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, unless you’re Slash, that is. This first true-solo effort sees the man responsible for some of rock’s most iconic riffery joining forces with the friends he met on the way (including The Cult’s Ian Astbury, Lemmy and Iggy Pop) and is a rocking riot from the off! ‘Crucify The Dead’ sees Ozzy’s distinct vocal complemented by Slash’s unique style while the gentle ‘Promise’ ft Chris Cornell and the hefty Duff Makagan / Dave Grohl-led instrumental, ‘Watch This’, are must-hears. The only duff track is ‘Beautiful Dangerous’ featuring Black Eye Peas bird Fergie.
Loads of super important stuff happeed this week, like All Time Lowselling out Wembley Arena and Gerard Way finally playing a show in the UK. Here are the super unimportant things that wouldn't matter at all if it wasn't for the internet. God bless the internet.
