But as exciting as that debut solo album (featuring a list of guest singers as diverse as Lemmy, Fergie, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, Chris Cornell and Kid Rock, among others) turned out to be, the band continuity and chemistry of Apocalyptic Love is as easy to hear onstage as it was in the grooves of the new album.
The tight-as-a-drum band chops, Kennedy’s lead and Kern’s powerful backing vocals during Standing In The Sun displayed a gang of musicians in the pocket, at ease and brimming with confidence.

The only axe Slash had to grind Friday night was his guitar, not dealing with any speculation about Axl.
A guest speaker at this year’s Canadian Music Week – and answering questions about whether Guns N’ Roses would perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s induction ceremony repeatedly during press interviews – Slash finally let loose on stage before a sold-out crowd at Toronto’s Phoenix Concert Theatre who were in paradise.
Following Just Like Anything, Slash began to dust off the heavyweights starting with Sweet Child O’ Mine that sounded like it had been done many times before. Surprisingly Slither, the hard-charging Velvet Revolver song, fared far better as the audience pumped fists when not holding up cameras or phones to record the proceedings.
Overall, Slash, Kennedy and The Conspirators executed a fine show featuring blasts from the pasts and a hint of what’s in store.
Axl would be proud, not that Slash would care.
After much speculation, Slash has revealed that Guns N’ Roses will not be performing at the April 14 ceremony in which the band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
“We’re not playing,” affirmed Slash to the QMI Agency. “I would imagine that they asked us to play but I know that we’re not playing.” We are assuming that Slash is speaking for the classic GN’R lineup, but it seems as if GN’R will not play at the ceremony in any incarnation.
