Slash Plays a Rare Acoustic Set in Hollywood

The legendary Guns N’ Roses guitarist played blues covers from his new album at Amoeba Hollywood


By Sam Youngman

Guitar hero Slash was back at his old stomping grounds Wednesday night, playing an acoustic set at Amoeba Music in Hollywood in support of his new blues album.

With collaborators Tash Neal and Teddy “ZigZag” Andreadis joining him on stage, the Guns N’ Roses legend jammed through several of the blues covers from “Orgy of the Damned,” a new blues album Slash did with several big name singers.

DJ and former MTV VJ Matt Pinfield kicked things off with a brief Q-and-A with the guitarist before turning the show over for a “once-in-a-lifetime” performance.

Slash’s publicist estimated that it has been 10 years since the guitar star played an all-acoustic set.

“I love to play the blues, but I’m still a hard rock guy,” Slash said.

Andreadis and Neal were a throwback to Slash’s 1990s blues band, Slash’s Blues Ball, and the guitarist said Wednesday night that it was the first time they were playing together on some of the songs since “nineteen-ninety-fucking-nine-or-something.”

They played “The Pusher,” “Hoochie Coochie Man,” “Killing Floor,” Awful Dream” and “Oh Well.” For the album, Slash teamed up with musicians like Iggy Pop, Demi Lovato and Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes.

Neal also appears on the new album, joining Slash for a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Living in the City.” He and Andreadis switched off on vocals Wednesday night as Slash worked his Gibson acoustics.

The trio also played a cover of Elmore James’ “Shake That Money Maker.”

Slash is playing L.A. again in July when his SERPENT Festival will do a show at the Greek Theatre with Warren Haynes, Samantha Fish and others.
