He spoke to radio host John Derringer of Q107. Slash talked about Myles Kennedy and his band, his recent appearance on the TV show ‘Top Gear,’ and how the new album was recorded. Slash said, “People don’t make records like this at this particular point in time. It was recorded live and it’s recorded to analog. It’s a real performance album. It has all the mistakes and it has the talking in between the takes. It’s a cool record.” The fact that any flaws and chatter were left in makes the album fully legit and authentic. It’s a traditional way of recording. Because of modern technology, you can make a record without having to be in the same room with the other people on the record. You also don’t have to know how to play, because they can fix that, too.”

He also stopped by 102.1 The Edge to talk to the Dean Blundell Show:

Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators are currently shooting a “dark” video for their new single, ‘You’re A Lie’, with director Anthony Leonardi III. Leonardi is also directing the first feature film produced by Slash’s company Slasher Films, called ‘Nothing To Fear.’ The movie was recently picked up for distribution by Anchor Bay Entertainment. The film began shooting last month in Louisiana, with Anne Heche and others confirmed for the cast. Here’s a clip of the upcoming video.

Here’s the 7th and final ‘Slash in the Studio’ video documenting the recording process of the new album. Cudos to Never Hide Films for a kick ass job on all of the episodes!
