Time magazine named Slash second, behind only Jimi Hendrix, on its “Ten Best Electric Guitar Players of All-Time” list. His famous guitar solos in songs, including “November Rain” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” are adored by rock fans worldwide. In 2003 he helped form the rock Grammy-winning supergroup VELVET REVOLVER, releasing two successful imprints with Scott Weiland and former GUNS N’ ROSES bandmates.

Slash now enjoys a thriving solo career with his new band SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS. On September 16, 2014 the band unleashed their top ten new album, “World On Fire”, to worldwide acclaim. The CD marks Slash‘s third straight album to debut in the Top Ten. The title track, “World On Fire”, ascended to No. 1 at U.S. rock radio. “World On Fire” features Slash with Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass). The album was released on Slash‘s label Dik Hayd International, which is distributed through Caroline.


Slash supports efforts to revitalize music education programs in public schools, as an honorary board member of Little Kids Rock.
