"Slash is ready for Dubai"

"Back to the present, and since Velvet Revolver went on hiatus in 2008, Slash has been keeping busy with various projects. In 2010, he released his first solo album, a self-tilted effort featuring a number of guest musicians, such as Ozzy Osbourne, M Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Dave Grohl, and even Adam Levine of Maroon 5. In 2012, he started recording his second album, Apocalyptic Love, with singer/guitarist Myles Kennedy, along with rhythm section Brent Fitz and Todd Kerns, also known as The Conspirators – Slash’s current tour mates.

“During the last Dubai show, I really didn’t know what to expect,” he continues. “I mean, we had been put up in an amazing hotel and treated really well, but we weren’t really sure what the show would be like. But then when it happened, it was amazing.

“This time around, it’s the first show in the tour, so it’s going to be pretty special for those that come out. Fans can expect a mix of music: some from the last solo record, some from Velvet Revolver, and of course, some from the catalogue of Guns N’Roses – two hours of music!
I point out that it’s quite refreshing for Dubai music fans to witness a show that hasn’t been played anywhere else yet. At least we haven’t seen any of it on YouTube for instance.

“But that’s the thing; I try and make it a point to have every show seem like it’s the first show of a tour,” Slash says. “I do not rehearse what I am going to say, and repeat what I say every night. We even mix up the songs. The set lists change from show to show."

"Just as he finishes this sentence, we’re warned that our time is up. I try and push for one more question, and despite the fact the nice lady monitoring the call is less than happy about this request, Slash tells me to go ahead and ask him.Anyone who lived in the Middle East in the nineties or before would know that most music albums sold in stores were not legal copies, purely because no copyright laws existed. I ask him whether he’d prefer that we had bought those copies, listen to his music, and be familiar with his material, or we had avoided doing so completely.
“I’d definitely prefer fans listening to the music. It’s great that our music has reached so many people around the world, and if this was the way it had to be done, then so be it,” he replies."
