Slash starts 'nailing' his solo album

The guitarist has completed four songs for the album

Guitarist Slash – or rather an impersonator of the infamous axeman – has made an appearance in a new Guns N' Roses-related video. The video, created by London-based Guns N'Roses fan Jimmy Reay, is the winning entry in a competition organised by the band's record label, Polydor, to find the best air guitar tribute to Axl Rose's band.

Slash has completed the recording of four songs for his forthcoming solo album, he has revealed.

The former Guns N' Roses man has been recording the album with former Jane's Addiction bassist Chris Chaney and former Nine Inch Nails drummer Josh Freese.

Eric Valentine (Queens Of The Stone Age, Lostprophets) is on production duties.

A slew of guest singers are set to appear on the album – although Slash has been cagey about revealing details of who might contribute.

"We've nailed four killer tracks with four amazing vocals so far," he wrote on his MySpace blog at Myspace.com/slash. "Everybody who has contributed vocals so far have been flawless and the rhythm section, Josh and Chris, are priceless.

"All in all this last couple of weeks have been a hell a lot of fun and we're just getting started. It's definitely going to be a kick ass record, if I do say so myself."
