Slash shreds, and is shredded.  It’s great to see the elder statesman of rock looking like he could grace the cover of Men’s Health Magazine, especially after being the poster boy for debauchery in his earlier years.  But now, showcasing his skills with his solo band – Slash is once again showing how entertaining and mind-blowing he is – whether it’s in arenas with Guns N Roses, or smaller music theaters like Fillmore Silver Spring with Miles Kennedy and the Conspirators.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Slash ripped through a 21-song set loaded with originals and some covers including early hits like “You’re A Lie” and “Anastasia” and new album gems like “The River Is Rising” and “C’est La Vie,”.  The band also offered their takes on classics like Lenny Kravitz’s “Always on the Run” and Elton John’s Rocket Man.

 

 

 

 

 

Slash will always be an icon for the debaucherous and sleazy lifestyle of the ‘80s and early ‘90s. Is it possible that some 30 years later, Slash is in better shape, shredding harder than his earlier version who defined 80’s rock? The answer is simply YES.  Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators delivered two hours of some of the best rock I have seen in recent memory – and I highly recommend this band to fans of rock, guitar shredding, and of course, Jack Daniels straight from the bottle.
