The iconic, Grammy-winning rock guitarist and songwriter SLASH has released his first-ever live solo album MADE IN STOKE 24/7/11. This summer, near the end of his 2010-2011 tour in support of his globally chart topping and critically acclaimed self-titled solo debut, SLASH returned to Stoke on Trent, England, where he was raised to record MADE IN STOKE 24/7/11. The double-disc CD, and a special-edition 2 CD+DVD package (featuring five bonus tracks and an exclusive interview with SLASH) is out now via Eagle Rock Entertainment.
SLASH was also on VH1 Classicâ€™s â€œThat Metal Showâ€ on Saturday, November 19. Check your local listings to see when it’ll re-air and head over to http://www.vh1classic.com/browse/video/109196/That_Metal_Show/index.jhtml for more on the show.
For over 20 years, SLASH has perfected the science of the six-string as an integral component of Guns Nâ€™ Roses and Velvet Revolver and as a hugely successful solo artist. Captured live at Victoria Hall on July, 24 2011 (24/7/11), MADE IN STOKE 24/7/11 is a stunning 21- song concert celebration of a legendary career. Joined by Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge on vocals, SLASH ripped through cuts culled from his Guns Nâ€™ Roses days, Velvet Revolver, Slashâ€™s Snakepit, and his solo album, including the single â€œBy The Sword.â€ His band line-up included bassist Todd Kerns, drummer Brent Fitz and guitarist Bobby Schneck. With favorites like â€œBack From Cali,â€ â€œSlither,â€ â€œSweet Child â€˜O Mineâ€ and many more reverberating the crowd-filled rafters, this proved to be one rockinâ€™ homecoming.
