Some rockstars, even the most legendary ones don’t seem to hit it off solo once they decide to break away from that band that made them famous. However Slash manages this effortlessly. “Slash’ Snake Pit”, “Velvet Revolver” and for the last ten years “The Conspirators”.
Four albums into their hopefully future extensive catalogue they still rock the house to the point where it felt like a moshing metal show than a steady more stable heavy rock show, but I guess when you are in the same room as “the modern day Hendrix” things are bound to get more intense than your average rock show.
It really is equally exciting been in the same room as his vocalist Myles Kennedy. He sings with more emotion than you feel from most singers these days which I think is what draws the crowd to him as a frontman.
The conspirators as in the rest of the band all seem to be a perfect fit. Energetic, enthusiastic and generally great musicians to be able to be with Slash you have to be at least that.
I’ve seen this band on every tour. They’ve played at Download Festival on every tour as well as having fast sellout shows. During hopefully many more years together if these guys keep bringing the sheer rock storm they bring then rock will never be dead. \m/
