To celebrate the release of “4”, the new album by Slash feat Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators (SMKC), iconic Guns N’ Roses guitarist, SLASH, spoke to select media, including What’s My Scene, in a press conference via ZOOM. The Q&A session was hosted by Rod Yates (ex Rolling Stone Australia editor) who had conducted such sessions in person with Slash in years gone by, and was an insightful thirty minutes.

Presented by Gibson Records, the Slash Exclusive Interactive Album Q&A allowed the media to delve into the making of the band’s new album ‘4’, the first new music from the band in four years.

SLASH and MYLES KENNEDY (Vocals), and The Conspirators: BRENT FITZ (Drums), TODD KERNS (Bass & Vocals) and FRANK SIDORIS (Guitar & Vocals) partnered with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Rival Sons), for the new album “4”. Recorded at RCA Studio A in Nashville, TN, Cobb shared the band’s desire to lay down the tracks live in the studio–including guitar solos and vocals–a first for the group, revealing a stunning, vital sound and style that captured the live feel.
