Slash Company Explodes at the Sound
Submitted by Rocker John
Slash and the Conspirators, featuring Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge on vocals, Todd Kerns on bass, and Brent Fitz on drums blasted their way through a 90 min set at the sold-out recently at the Sound Academy in Toronto. Slash or better known as Saul Hudson, certainly hasn’t got rusted in any way since the demise of the Gunners way back when. His constant riffs on his Gibson Les Paul, EDS-1275 or B.C.Rich Mockingbird backed by a stack of Marshall Amps echoed through the Sound’s boisterous, but well behaved crowd.
He certainly proved his presence even at the age of 47, along with a powerful performance from Myles Kennedy (bass) while Todd Kerns provided his own unique style on lead and backup vocals. Drummer Brent Fitz never let up, bashing away until the set ended.
The song list was intense including a few songs from their just released new album, Apocalyptic Love (May 2012), but the classics Gunner’s songs, Paradise City, Sweet Child o Mine, got the crowd to their feet, hurling their fists into to the air and provided their own back ground vocals at every moment. The fans certainly left feeling their got their money’s worth.
