Slash is the most legendary guitar player of the last 30 years. I’m sure many of you will debate this. I’m sure many of you have a list where Slash is in the top 10, but doesn’t hold the #1 spot. Regardless, his work is amazing.
Since 2010, Slash has been recording with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators (Todd Kerns on Bass, Brent Frintz on Drums). In 2010, Slash released his self-titled solo project with a wide variety of singers featured. An array from genres, from Kid Rock to Adam Levine. However, one man stood out above the rest for Slash, and that was Myles Kennedy.
Since that first record, Slash has released 3 records with Kennedy & The Conspirators: Apocalyptic Love (2012), World on Fire (2014), and Living the Dream (2018). On February 11th, 2022, Slash will release his fourth record with the group called Four.
In honor of this new record, I thought I would put together a list of my top 7 favorite songs from Slash and company.
(For the record, this will not include his Guns N’ Roses or Velvet Revolver songs)
Not For Me
Oh man, this song is a GREAT song to start off with. “Not For Me” is about, what I assume, an addict or alcoholic. They wake up the next morning having to deal with the repercussions of getting high/drunk. The POV is that this person is realizing how this life is not for them. It’s a fantastic song, reminding me of my friends who are struggling with addiction.
Pro Tip: The Guitar Center Sessions version of this song is my personal favorite [LINK IT].
While I am not sure the meaning of the song, it’s for sure a banger, being one of my personal favorite tunes from Slash & Myles. The live version just makes you want to rage. “Wicked Stone is a great addition to a workout or hype playlist. If this song is not on your rotation, you need to add it immediately.
