SLASH’s star is located directly in front of the Hard Rock Café on Hollywood Blvd.  An original member of iconic rock band Guns N’ Roses, SLASH helped the band create signature sounds like the guitar riff of #1 hit “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Welcome To The Jungle.” After leaving the band, SLASH went on to critical acclaim in his personal project Slash’s Snakepit, and global success with the supergroup Velvet Revolver.  SLASH and his bandmates Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators--Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass) and Frank Sidoris (guitar)--are in the midst of a world tour for their critically acclaimed album APOCALYPTIC LOVE which earned  SLASH his two first-ever #1 rock radio hits: “You’re A Lie” and “Standing In The Sun.” The album’s third single “Anastasia” has now cracked the Top 20 at Active Rock, landing at #19 this week. The album was produced by Eric Valentine, who did the same honors for his first solo disc SLASH, and all the songs on APOCALYPTIC LOVE were written together by Slash and Myles Kennedy.
