SLASH: Honored Today With His Own Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Grammy-winning, iconic guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee SLASH marked a career milestone today, Tuesday, July 10, as he was honored with his own Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. SLASH’s star is located directly in front of the Hard Rock Café on Hollywood Blvd (6801 Hollywood Blvd, #105 Los Angeles, CA 90028). SLASH’s friends--celebrated film producer Robert Evans, actor Charlie Sheen and beloved radio host Jim Ladd--were guest speakers at the fan-packed ceremony. Afterwards, SLASH and bandmate Myles Kennedy treated fans to a private acoustic performance and exclusive Q&A at the Hard Rock Café Hollywood Blvd.

As a musician, artist, philanthropist, and iconic rock figure, SLASH has amassed album sales nearing an astounding 100 million copies along with a Grammy Award and seven Grammy nominations, plus countless other accolades, accomplishments and acknowledgements, Time magazine named Slash #2, behind Jimi Hendrix, on its “The Ten Best Electric Guitar Players of All-Time.” Slash’s self-titled biography critically well-received, climbed the bestseller list in both the U.S. and U.K. hitting #8 on the NY Times Bestsellers list. Guitar Hero used SLASH’s image and music, producing an installment that shattered previous gaming records while opening the floodgates to a whole new generation of fans.

SLASH Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators--Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass)--recently released their new album APOCALYPTIC LOVE (May 22, 2012). APOCALYPTIC LOVE stormed onto the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart at #4, marking the top rock debut for that week. The disc also hit #1 Independent Albums Chart and #1 Hard Music Albums Chart. “You’re A Lie” the hard-driving first single off the new album is now #1 Active Rock, marking SLASH’s first ever solo #1 hit at radio. All songs on APOCALYPTIC LOVE released on SLASH’s own Dik Hayd International, and distributed through EMI Label Services were written together by SLASH and Myles Kennedy as they spent the last two years on tour all over the world. Critical acclaim is pouring in for the album. Revolver magazine declared “Apocalyptic Love is at heart a collection of lean, high-octane rock-and-roll tunes built to be blasted out of open-top sports cars or, more suitably, open-air stadiums” (July 2012). The  Los Angeles Times added, “Fans of his work in GNR and Velvet Revolver will find much to embrace in the album’s 13 tracks, ranging from the sneering rock hooks of ‘You’re a Lie’ and the heavy metal grind of ‘Halo’ to the extended instrumental passages on ‘Anastasia.’” Elsewhere, Rolling Stone.com hailed “the album is filled with head bangers and plenty of fancy fretwork, most notably on standout tracks like ‘Hard and Fast’ and ‘Standing in the Sun’” (May 20, 2012). SLASH and his band, including touring guitarist Frank Sidoris, will launch a summer headlining tour of the U.S. and Canada on July 12 in Portland, OR. They’ll follow that up with a full U.S. headlining tour starting September 4 in San Diego, CA and wrapping October 3 in Los Angeles, CA Ticket info is available at http://slashonline.com/tour.
