Slash has recruited THE CAB‘s Frank Sidoris (pictured below) from Las Vegas to play rhythm guitar on the former GUNS N’ ROSES axeman’s upcoming tour. Slash says, “He’s in for a long, crazy ride.” Sidoris replaces Bobby Schneck, who parted ways with Slash‘s band a few months ago after spending much of the last two years on the road backing the VELVET REVOLVER guitarist.
Slash is currently in a Los Angeles studio putting the finishing touches on his second solo album. Entitled “Apocalyptic Love“, the disc is due out May 22 on Slash‘s own label Dik Hayd International distributed through EMI
For the new album, Slash — along with and his bandmates Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass) — teamed with producer Eric Valentine, who also produced the “Slash” (2010) disc.
