YouTube Du Jour: Slash

Through the years Slash’s frizzed-out locks, top hat and aviator sunglasses have become as recognizable as his signature guitar licks. Tonight, the ex-Guns N’ Roses axeman brings his current band, which features Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy on vocals and goes by the name of the Conspirators, to the House of Blues.

Since his much-publicized falling out with GNR co-founder Axl Rose in the mid-’90s, the guitarist re-emerged on the mainstream radar as a member of the multi-platinum supergroup Velvet Revolver in 2002 and later as a playable character on the genre-shaping video game Guitar Hero.

For a taste of what’s in store, here’s the video for “You’re a Lie,” the lead single off of Slash’s current album, Apocalyptic Love, as well as a live clip of the group doing the GNR staple “Paradise City.”


The House of Blues is located at 225 Decatur. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 with sets from openers the Campaign 1984 and Foxy Shazam.
