After bringing you an exclusive interview with Black Country Communion’s Glenn Hughes and scouting Saturday big guns Judas Priest, Queensryche and Rival Sons it’s time to focus on the best guitarist of the weekend.
Slash has been warming up for Victoria Park with headline shows across the UK this week and here we look at what to expect from the former Gunner!
Signature look: Top hat and Les Paul
Signature hook: Sweet Child O’ Mine – but from his solo album look out for the stunning Starlight
Ace in the pack: Singer Myles Kennedy. The Alter Bridge man might bore the pants of rock fans in his dour day job but alongside Slash he’s a star performer.
Back catalogue banker: Paradise City – he’s been wrapping up the solo shows with this 80s classic
On-stage banter: A man of few words but says the right things at the right time
Rock star rating: 10/10 – this bloke invented the ‘understated cool’ look
Expect: The set of the weekend
Don’t expect: A surprise cameo from Mr A Rose
