… for a track on Slash’s forthcoming solo album. This album hasn’t got an official release date but could be out by the end of the year according to BBC Newsbeat.
Andrew Stockdale, frontman with Aussie group Wolfmother will also perform with Slash’s benefit concert in L.A. Avalon Theatre (22 November 2009). Other acts to perform include Chris Cornell and none other than the man featuring in a lot of recent blog posts, the Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne.
Wolfmother’s new album, Cosmic Egg is due for release on 26 October – check out tracks here:
Slash has had plenty of time to focus on his forthcoming solo album since his current band, Velvet Revolver have yet to find a replacement for former singer Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots) who left (amicably or otherwise) Velvet Revolver in 2008. Some of the other Velvet Revolver band members have their own spin off acts to keep them busy. Duff McKagan has been busy touring with his side-project Duff McKagan’s Loaded playing alongside the likes of Black Stone Cherry and The Parlor Mob. VR drummer Matt Sorum has amongst other things, been drumming with Motorhead (and evidently loving it) in some US dates to fill in for Motorhead regular drummer Mikkey Dee who is “away on safari”.
