Classic Rock Issue 327 (June 2024) Slash

Had I compiled a bingo card of things that might happen in 2024 at the beginning of the year, I really don’t think I’d have included Slash releasing a new album. I mean, the fella’s got a lot on his plate – a seemingly endless Guns N’ Roses tour (and possibly a much-rumoured new album from them), and another extensive ‘rest of the world’ tour with his other day job with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators. 

I mean, when would he have had the time for anything else? What I certainly wouldn’t have put on the list would have been a brand new album of (mostly) blues covers, packed with rock A-listers at the mic. Nostrodamus I am not… Slash tells us all about it, and how he coerced some of his famous pals into helping him.

I did mention this last month, but I’m going to do so again, as it’s a pretty cool thing. Don’t forget that if you’re a subscriber you not only get the mag in your hand, but also now have access to our digital edition – and more than 100 back issues! Until next month…
