GOING FOR THE GOLD

SLASH, GUITAR WORLD AND GUITAR CENTER SPARKLE AT SESSIONS.


IT WAS LIKE A THREE-RING circus at the Guitar Center in Northridge, California, on September 3, so it was appropriate that the guest of honor wore a ringmaster's top hat Slash, the guitar legend behind Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver, was the center of attention as he took part in the latest installment of Guitar Center Sessions: An Evening of Dialogue and Insight.

Nearly 2,000 enthusiastic rock fans turned up at the store to cheer him on, and Slash did not disappoint, playing guitar and chatting for nearly 90 minutes with the event's guest host, Guitar World editor-in-chief Brad Tolinski. During the interview portion of the evening, Slash touched on all periods of his storied career and revealed he was working on a new solo album that will feature a different vocalist on each song. "But I can't tell you who is on it yet,” he teased the crowd. “All the contracts haven't been signed yet.”

Later, Slash played Velvet Revolver's “Slither” and busted out GN’R favorites like “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “Welcome to the Jungle.” To the roaring approval of the crowd, he finished with some blistering blues licks that tested the limits of his Ernie Ball RPS-11 Slinky nickel-wound strings.

Another highlight came when the guitar legend unveiled his two new limited-edition signature guitars: the Slash Les Paul Goldtop and the Slash Epiphone Les Paul Goldtop. Both looked like a million bucks, in part because their Bullion Gold finish is the same one introduced on the original Les Paul in 1952.

After the sessions, Slash signed guitars and hundreds of copies of the book Reckless Road: Guns N’ Roses and the Making of Appetite for Destruction (Real Deal Media), written by his life-long friend Marc Canter. “It’s the definitive visual history of the band’s early days in Hollywood,” Slash said. "Marc was like the sixth guy in the band. He saw everything."
