Slash—the iconic, Grammy-winning, American rock guitarist, songwriter and film producer—has amassed album sales of over 100 million copies, garnered a Grammy Award and seven Grammy nominations, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is a New York Times Best-selling author. Slash is considered one of the greatest rock guitar players of all time and one of the most recognizable faces in pop culture worldwide. Time magazine placed Slash at #2 (Jimi Hendrix was #1) in its list, “The 10 Greatest Electric Guitar Players.” Slash created signature sounds like the guitar riff on #1 hits for Guns N’ Roses “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Welcome To The Jungle.” After leaving the band, Slash went on to critical acclaim with Slash’s Snakepit and global success with the supergroup Velvet Revolver before embarking on his own solo career.
After landing on the top of the charts with his first solo album, Slash (2010)—which featured Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie, Myles Kennedy and more—he formed his current band Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators (SMKC)—which features Myles Kennedy (lead vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass/vocals) and Frank Sidoris (rhythm guitar)—who’ve been touring worldwide and making music together non-stop for over a decade.
Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators (SMKC) released their debut album, the critically acclaimed Apocalyptic Love (2012) which stormed the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart debuting at #4 on the overall chart as well as the #1 Top Rock album, and spawned Slash and the band’s first-ever #1 solo radio hits “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” The band’s second album, World On Fire (2016) debuted to global praise and the album’s title track, “World On Fire” ascended to #1 at U.S. Rock Radio. In 2016, Guns N’ Roses re-united and Slash joined Axl Rose and Duff McKagan for the historic and ongoing world tour which Billboard magazine now ranks as the third highest grossing tour of all time.
