Slash On Why He Doesn’t Compare Myles Kennedy To Axl Rose
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash recently gave an interview to Goldmine and answered the questions about his music career in detail. The guitarist did not compare Myles Kennedy to Axl Rose when asked about the similarities and differences working with the pair.
Besides his appearance in Guns N’ Roses, Slash is known for his backing band with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. After releasing his solo self-titled debut album in 2010, the guitarist hit the road for a promoting tour with notable names, including Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy. Later, Slash started working with his touring team of Kennedy, Todd Kerns, and Brent Fitz on his albums.
He created the 2012 ‘Apocalyptic Love’ album with them and debuted at number two on the Canadian Albums Chart. In the same year, Kennedy appeared with GN’R for the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony when Axl Rose refused to join.
In 2014, Slash released his third studio album ‘World on Fire,’ with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The record debuted at number ten on the Billboard 200 chart. ‘Living the Dream’ was the next album Kennedy played with Slash. It sold almost 20.000 copies and debuted at number 27 on the Billboard 200.
During a recent interview, Slash indicated that Kennedy and Axl Rose are very different when asked about comparing the pair regarding working with them. According to the guitarist, the two are exceptional in what they do. However, there is no mutual thing to compare them. Slash mentioned that he has not considered the similarities and differences between the duo.
Slash responded when asked about a comparison between Myles Kennedy and Axl Rose:
“It’s not something that you’re conscious of because they’re just two very different people, you know what I mean? So, there’s nothing about either one of them that makes me think about the other. Myles does what he does, and he’s got a very specific personality. Axl does what he does, and he’s got a very specific personality.
And I never really think about the similarities and the differences. I’m looking forward to going out doing the states with the Conspirators. It’s been a while, so I’m looking forward to that. It’s going to be good. I’m excited about it.”
The guitarist, who has worked with Axl Rose and Myles Kennedy for a long time, said they were both exceptional musicians. As he has revealed, it is almost impossible for him to compare these two because they have nothing in common. Slash has also shared his excitement for his upcoming plans with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.
