Slash was joined on stage by Lemmy from MOTÖRHEAD for a rendition of “Doctor Alibi” during the former GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist’s concert on August 2 at House Of Blues in Boston, Massachusetts. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed below.
“Doctor Alibi” comes off Slash’s self-titled solo album, which came out in April 2010.
In a March 2010 interview with Ultimate-Guitar.com, Slash stated about the experience of recording “Doctor Alibi” with Lemmy, “That was another great moment; having Lemmy come down. Because Lemmy was one of those guys that I so looked up to and I still do. When I was a kid, I was one of those Lemmy fans that would bow in his presence. And we got to be friends and he’s always sort of taken me under his wing kind of thing and he’s always been really cool. Lemmy is one of those kinds of guys who can have a real serious attitude if he wants to. He’s actually a really nice guy in general. I always thought he was sort of intimidating but he was always really nice to me. And I’ve had a chance to work with him; I’ve played on one of their records ['March or Die'] and I’ve done a lot of gigs with ‘em. I asked him if he’d be interested and I sent him the thing and he got it right away and he came down to the studio. . . We had bottle of Jack Daniels and a couple bags of potato chips and it reminded me of when I used to show up at sessions. It was great. And the song is all about how the doctor told him how he might have to quit partying and then another doctor said, ‘No, you need to continue.’ It’s a great personal thing; I’m really honored to have it on there.
Slash and MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS — Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass) and Frank Sidoris (guitar) — announced a fall headlining tour starting September 4 in San Diego, California and wrapping October 3 in Los Angeles, California.
Slash scored his first-ever No. 1 hit at rock radio as a solo artist with “You’re A Lie”, the first single from his second solo effort, “Apocalyptic Love”. The record came out on May 22 and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard album chart a week later, selling 38,000 copies in its first week of release.
Unlike Slash’s solo debut, which featured different vocalists on each track and a number of guest musicians, Slash has recorded all of the new CD with MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS.
