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.

Subliminally crushing and psychadelic, 'Ascension' is a stellar effort...
