Slash "R&Fn'R" (Rock and fuckin roll) or "Slash & Friends"

Caraca, há qto tempo eu não ouvia um disco do começo ao fim com a mesma qualidade e intensidade do bom e velho rock, mas aquele rock que já deixava de ser 'roll e ainda não era heavy ou sei lá o quê, só rock, puro e bom, gostoso de ouvir de curtir.

Taí uma surpresa pra mim, Slash é sim um dos melhores músicos do mundo, técnico ao extremo, doido e doente insano, mas muito bom mesmo e quem quiser que bote um vídeo dele com alguém tipo Richie Kotzen ou Zakky Wilde principalmente pra ver do que ele é capaz.

Mas como gosto de parcerias, nelas é que se nota se o cara é bom mesmo, prq ele tá tocando com alguém de outra praia e que toca ou canta como nunca ele tocou ou cantou e nesse disco eu não descobri qual música gostei mais, deixando Ozzy de fora prq é "hors concours".

Um puta disco de peso e responsa, um som que dá gosto ficar escrevendo e ouvindo e nao se deixe enganar por nomes como de Fergie do BEP ou o chato do Ian do Cult (ainda existe?) prq nenhum deles ao meu ver deixou a peteca cair, e saiu um puta de um disco de rock.

Que gostoso poder postar algo assim, pensei que o Black Label Soc. fosse virar, mas não e tb o BCC com Hughes e tudo mas tb não, mas do Slash não esperava tanto, espero não se decepcionem com meu ufanismo, mas é bom de fio a pavio."Slash, "Slash & Friends" (Label TBD)
Release Date: March/April 2010

With Velvet Revolver on hiatus, the top-hatted guitar hero worked with several of his friends for his first true solo album, which he recorded mostly at Barefoot Studios in Hollywood with co-producer Eric Valentine.

Confirmed guests include Ozzy Osbourne, Kid Rock, Iggy Pop, Wolfmother's Andrew Stockdale, Maroon 5's Adam Levine and Chris Cornell, while Slash has also mentioned working with Dave Grohl, Duff McKagan, Alice Cooper, Meat Loaf and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger during the sessions.

"It was a massive undertaking, but the initial concept was very innocent," Slash says. "I spent the better part of a year writing and demo-ing music, and with every tune I wrote I would imagine who would be a good vocalist for it.

It was a total honor to be in the studio with all of the people who are on this album. Many of them are heroes of mine from when I was younger-Ozzy and Iggy specifically." "Slash & Friends" is expected to feature about 13 songs.Abstract

With Velvet Revolver out of commission and Guns N' Roses a distant memory, the time was right for Slash to put together his first solo album (not including the Slash's Snakepit side project, a fun relic of the mid-90s).

The list ofcollaborators the legendary behatted guitarist has put together for Slash and Friends is rather dumbfounding: names have included Ozzy Osbourne, Jason Bonham, Travis Barker, and Fergie.

While former bandmate Axl Rose didn't help his case much with last year's Chinese Democracy, it remains to be seen whether the man behind the solos in "Sweet Child o' Mine" and "November Rain" has any decent songs left in the tank.
If nothing else, Slash is more time efficient with his preposterous releases.Like Jeff Beck before him, Slash is a superstar guitarist who can't sing a lick - a situation that poses a considerable problem when it comes time to record a solo album, which apparently is whenever his band collapses under the preening ego of a lead singer.

When combing through the wreckage of GNR he decided to form a band whose singer almost seemed like an afterthought, but he took a different route after the meltdown of Velvet Revolver, choosing to follow Santana's Supernatural blueprint, hauling in a different singer for each track.

Of course, Supernatural was designed with the intention of having Santana cross over to a new audience, but Slash, with the exception of Fergie howling "Beautiful Dangerous," was made with his old fans in mind, bringing in gnarled old rockers like Ozzy, Lemmy, and Iggy to carry the brunt of the work, slipping in a few new faces -- like Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother, Rocco DeLuca (the first signing to Kiefer Sutherland's label), and Myles Kennedy, chosen to front Slash's supporting tour for the record -- along the way.

It's a comfortable and familiar fit, with the exceptions to the rule being Fergie, who winds up pushing Slash in an interesting hooky direction, and the instrumental jam between the guitarist, his GNR/Velvet bandmate Duff McKagan, and Dave Grohl. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Rolling Stone (p.68) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's the anti-CHINESE DEMOCRACY.
If Axl's masterwork was a solitary quest for perfection, Slash's solo debut is a freewheeling group hug."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.48) - "[L]ike so much rock 'n' roll, here the results appear to be effortless, nothing less and nothing more than the result of excellent instincts combining with exceptional talent."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hankfully SLASH doesn't lack guts, tunes, potent solos or giant-slaying riffage."Primary musicians:
