Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators made a stop in Seattle on Friday night (June 13) at the Showbox SoDo and who should show up, but ex-Guns N’ Roses bandmate Duff McKagan.
He joined Slash three months after last sharing a stage together at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction ceremonies this past April. Watch the renditions of the GnR classics ‘It’s So Easy’ and ‘Paradise City’ below.
“Thanks to Duff McKagan for coming down & jamming a couple tunes as well. Made it a perfect night. #itssoeasy#” tweeted Slash after the show.
On Monday (July 10) radio host Jim Ladd, film producer Robert Evans, and friend Charlie Sheen were all on hand to witness the ceremony and speak on Slash’s behalf at his induction into the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Sheen, who is also Slash’s neighbor took a public swipe at Axl Rose, saying, “It’s quite fitting that Slash is getting a star on the very street Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on.”
He also got in some drug humor adding, “This star is going to be stepped on more than the coke we did in the ’80s,” where . Also in attendance were Slash’s wife Perla, their children, and former Guns N’ Roses bandmates Steven Adler and Gilby Clarke.
In addition to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honor, Slash was named by Time magazine as the No. 2 guitarist of all-time, coming in right behind Jimi Hendrix on their list.
Following the event, Slash and Myles Kennedy went into the Hard Rock for a private acoustic performance and question-and-answer session. Myles and Slash were joined by Steven Adler, who did a great job of getting the crowd to clap along and sing the chorus on ‘Paradise City.’ Watch footage of all of it below.
