WTF? Gibson’s top 10 albums of 2010: Slash only at #10?!

I don’t think Gibson has a great track record with these types of lists at all! Here’s what they said about Slash’s album at #10:

Although Slash has been a member of some of the biggest bands in rock, it took until 2010 for the legendary guitarist to step out as a solo musician. His self-titled solo debut paired his thrilling guitar work with some of the most famous voices in music (including Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie and Iggy Pop) and reminded everyone what a true guitar hero can do.

DailyRecord Slash interview

The Daily Record posted an interview with Slash on their website:

I’m a much better guitarist now I’m off drugs and alcohol, says Slash of Guns N’ Roses

I don’t wake up and make a cocktail first thing in the morning these days. I don’t have a lot of vices I have to deal with first thing. I was a slave to my addiction, and had to take care of those first, so I don’t have that any more. It leaves more time to be productive.

I always have a guitar by my side and I’m always out in circles where musicians hang out, or I’m in situations where I’m exposed to lots of different artists.

I did a song with him [Iggy Pop] and Lenny Kravitz back in the early ’90s which was never released that was really cool. So we have an ongoing relationship.
