I am so NOT a Slash disciple that I just realized from your post that this "4" thing is a brand new album. I thought this was some old album and some old guitar that was very popular and so they decided to do it next- I had no idea it was an new album and design. I just figured with the red guitars he has had previous...it was one of those.I AM a Slash disciple, he’s the reason I play guitar, but honestly I’m kind of over it. I listened to the new album today and while it’s totally adequate, that’s about all it’s got going for it.
Guns are at the stones point now (not comparing bands, just draw power) take to the stadiums, play the hits, and get out of the way. I wouldn’t even pay to see the conspirators at this point.
On occasion I'll give him a listen on the yootoobz if he pops up in my feed, and of course I have a few select songs from GnR that I'll always crank up (Rocket Queen, YCBM)- I think he's only gotten better as he has aged (sobriety helped alot, I'm sure) , but I'm older and my influences are mainly the same generation/s of guitarists that influenced him- Perry, Schenker, Beck, Page, etc.
