Slash in the studio for cowbell-heavy second solo album

The rocker is hoping to record seven songs before Christmas

Slash has revealed that his second solo album will be heavy on the cowbell.

The former Guns N’Roses guitarist – real name Saul Hudson – is currently recording the follow up to 2010’s ‘Slash’ in Los Angeles. He tweeted from the studio:

The ’70s called & asked for their cowbell back. We said ‘screw u, we’re keeping it.’

The rocker also said that he’s hoping to record seven songs before Christmas, commenting on Monday (December 19): “Back in the studio tomorrow to do song #7. This is our last week before Xmas/NY, then resume recording on the 2nd”. Later he added: “1 song down, getting drums set up for song #2 for the day. Is it possible to get 7 more done before Xmas? Who knows. Iii|; )”

Songs believed to be in contention for inclusion include ‘Halo’, ‘Standing In The Sun’ and ‘Bad Rain’.

Slash is again collaborating with Myles Kennedy, frontman of Florida rock band Alter Bridge, on vocals. The band are recording in California’s Barefoot Studio and working with producer Eric Valentine – according to bassist Todd Kerns.
