Anyone growing up in the 1980s listening to Hard Rock had their world turned upside when Guns N’ Roses burst onto the scene in the latter part of the decade with the legendary 1987 album, Appetite for Destruction. Although their classic lineup has since broken up, former lead guitarist Slash teamed up with bandmates Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin in 2002 as Velvet Revolver along with Stone Temple Pilot’s Scott Weiland, releasing two top-selling records in 2004 and 2007. After Weiland departed in 2008 to rejoin Stone Temple Pilots, Slash decided to dive into a new solo project, where he produced a self-titled album in 2008 with help from Ozzy Ozzborne, Dave Grohl, Iggy Pop, Chris Cornell, Fergie, Myles Kennedy, Adam Levine, M Shadows, and Lemmy Kilmister. Initially tapping into the solo world under the name Slash’s Snakepit in 1995 with the album It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere, Slash is no stranger to the territory and has seemed to blossom in the spotlight through the years. Joining forces with Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy in 2012, Slash formed a new band entitled Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, releasing their debut, Apocalyptic Love, to a overwhelming positive reception. Still going strong, the band of Slash on lead guitar, Kennedy on vocals/guitar, Brent Fitz on drums, and Todd Kerns on bass released their third album, World on Fire, on September 10, 2014 and have been touring in support of the material into 2015 with the addition guitarist Frank Sidoris. The World on Fire Tour 2015 kicked off at Wellington Central in New Zealand on February 18th, and the band came firing on all cylinders when they stopped at New York City’s Terminal 5 on Thursday May 7th. Selling out the venue, it would be the first visit to the Big Apple by Slash and his cohorts since the Apocalyptic Love Tour in 2013, thus provoking much excitement among fans.
