Former Guns N' Roses members team up for charity concert
Former members of Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver including Slash, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan recently teamed up for a benefit concert in New York City.

Although singer Axl Rose was not in attendance, the trio performed the Playing It Forward fundraiser show for the Road Recovery Foundation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping young adults battling addiction.

Former guitarist Gilby Clarke, who performed with the band for three years after Izzy Stradlin left in 1991, also performed along with Entourage star Jeremy Piven.

Following the show Slash wrote on his Twitter page "Thanks to all the musicians who contributed to the Road Recovery benefit & thanks to all the fans who came & supported the cause. Cheers!"

Slash is set to release a live album recorded in his childhood hometown Stoke on November 14. The LP 'Made In Stoke 24/7/11' was filmed and recorded in the city's Victoria Hall and features a number of Guns N' Roses classics including Sweet Child O'Mine, 'Nightrain', 'Patience', 'Mr Brownstone' 'Civil War' and 'Paradise City' along with songs from his 2010 self-titled solo album.
