Slash’s blue over Lemmy

STAR'S A BIG MISS ON NEW ALBUM

GUITAR legend Slash teamed up with the biggest rock stars on the planet for his new LP but there’s one voice he misses dearly.
Out now, Orgy Of The Damned is a collection of blues covers by Slash with Brian Johnson, Billy Gibbons and Iggy Pop happy to join in.

But did anyone refuse? No, but Slash would have loved late Motorhead star on the record.

Slash said: "The biggest one that bums me out was Lemmy. There was a moment there where I thought Lemmy would be great. I still haven't got used to the fact that he's not here, so that was the big one. Everybody I thought of was available."

All the guest are vocalists because, as Slash puts it: “I’m selfish. It’s my blues record I wanted to play guitar on. But to make a record with all these guitar players would be cool too."

Surprising is the absence of Slash's usual vocalists Myles Kennedy and Axl Rose. He explained: “It was my own side thing, so I wasn’t dragging my own guys in. Guns N’ Roses are trying to make their own record and I'm working with them in that capacity but this didn't involve anyone else.

"For me, making a record is just a vehicle to perform it, so I'm doing a blues festival in the US in August with other great players on it. We are flying by the seat of our pants but if it goes well we want to do it every year as a fund-raiser and hopefully bring it to Europe.”

LISTEN UP: NEW ALBUM

SLASH / Orgy Of The Damned


NOT so much an orgy as a cheeky smooch, the Guns N’ Roses guitarist switches from rock to blues. Iggy Pop, AC/DC and ZZ Top guest, but Demi Lovato steals the show with Papa Was A Rolling Stone. Some of the covers are too obvious, yet Slash’s dazzling guitar licks ensure listeners have as much fun as he is.
