Be In TV conducted an interview with legendary guitarist Slash (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER) before his February 11 performance in Prague, Czech Republic. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTubeclip below.
Asked about LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe‘s ongoing trial in Prague on manslaughter charges in connection with the death of a fan at a LAMB OF GOD concert in the Czech Republic nearly three years ago,Slash said: “I know as much as I’ve been told from everybody I know in that camp. It’s a strange, unique situation. I think that when he first came over here and put up his bail and they never let him out and they kept paying and they kept paying and paying and paying, and they never let him out. I said, ‘What the fuck is going on there?’ I mean, that’s’ a whole different type of law, to me, where it’s just different. And so finally they let him out, and now it’s actually going to trial. And I really don’t think he, in any way, shape or form, is guilty. So they’re gonna let this thing run its course, I suppose. And because the judicial system here is so different, that he was able to stay in jail here so long, who knows what the verdict is gonna end up being?! It’s hard to say. And I guess witnesses didn’t show up and they had to postpone it. It’s a very long and, unfortunately, it’s a very expensive process. It’s, like, fuck… Really?!”
Slash‘s second solo album, “Apocalyptic Love”, sold around 38,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 4 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Slash‘s self-titled debut album scored the highest new entry on The Billboard 200 chart in April 2010, with first-week U.S. sales of around 60,000 copies.
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 his touring band, MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS.
