Slash's Solo Album Stream: Hear It Before Its May Release

When you used to be in a band with a guy that made arguably the most anticipated album of the last two decades, which turned out to be Axl Rose's epic failure Chinese Democracy, it's kinda hard to top the hype yourself. But alas, Slash has found a few ways to get our attention about his upcoming solo record.

The self titled record, Slash features a shit ton of guest musicians. (The man really pulled out all the stops on this one.) They include, but are not limited to:

  • Iggy Pop
  • Ozzy Osbourne
  • Chris Cornell
  • Lemmy, from Motorhead
  • Fergie
  • Kid Rock
  • Adam Levine, from Maroon 5
  • Duff McKagan, formerly of Guns N' Roses
  • Ian Astbury, of The Cult
  • Quite an impressive list, huh? And who knew the man liked Fergie. NME's got the complete tracklisting and link to the full album.
