Myles Kennedy Explains If Guns N’ Roses’ Slash Is An Intimidating Person To Work With
Alter Bridge lead vocalist Myles Kennedy opened up about working with Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash’s solo band during an appearance on Audio Ink Radio, and apparently, it’s far from intimidating to work with the legendary guitarist since he’s an easygoing artist.
As many of you might know, Myles Kennedy’s work with Slash started way back in 2009 when the two worked on Slash’s self-titled debut solo album, followed by Kennedy working as the lead vocalist for Slash’s band on tour as well as the duo working as a supporting act on Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne’s tour in 2010.
Slash’s second solo album featured Myles Kennedy, this time as the sole vocalist, however, Guns N’ Roses guitarist confirmed that it would be less of an actual solo album and more of a collaboration album with Kennedy, and that’s when the duo and other musicians in the band came up with a name, ‘Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.‘
Since then, Slash and Myles Kennedy have been working as an ultimate guitarist-vocalist duo that released three studio albums, 2012’s ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ 2014 album, ‘World on Fire,’ and 2018’s ‘Living the Dream,’ as well as the upcoming recording, ‘TBa’ which is going. to be out this year.
During a recent interview, Myles Kennedy opened up about working with one of the greatest guitarists and stated that Slash is actually a cool, easy to work with, and ego-free musician all of which have a great contribution to the creation process.
Furthermore, Alter Bridge vocalist stated that Slash is anything but intimidating while referring to him as a sweet cat who just loves to play music which is often incredibly fun and liberating when it comes to their projects on music.
Here is what Myles Kennedy said about Slash:
“He’s really cool. He’s very easy to work with. There’s no ‘intimidating’ whatsoever, actually, as far as writing with him – because of the fact that he’s not precious with his ideas. That’s one of the downfalls with a lot of creative people, are you tend to get kind of protective and territorial, and you let your ego come into the fold.
And with him, what I learned early on in the process was that he was open to whatever. So, having that ability and knowing that he’s gonna do what’s best for the song is very liberating. He’s a very cool guy. He’s just a really mellow cat who loves to play music more than anything in the world. So, it’s fun.”
