Slash Reveals his Desire to Start Work on Follow-Up to Apocalyptic Love

Slash Reveals Desire to Start Work on Follow-Up to Apocalyptic Love -

So far it has been a busy year for Ex-Guns N' Roses & Velvet Revolver guitarist, Slash.

What with the hard-rock icon's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, which also helped re-ignite old controversies with former band-mate, Axl Rose, the release of his new album, Apocalyptic Love, and the world-renowned guitarist finally being honoured for his tireless work with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, you'd think that he'd treat himself to some time-off. Well Slash, who turns 47 later this month, certainly doesn't seem to think that.

Speaking with Rolling Stone Magazine, after the Walk of Fame ceremony on July 10th, he revealed his intentions to begin work on a new album:

"We've got the tour that's gonna go into next year, we're starting work on the next record."

He continued, 

"I definitely feel like I'm cresting a certain wave in my career where I'm having a really great time, I love what I'm doing, I love the people I'm working with and I'm feeling very energized. I haven't had that feeling since when Guns started."  

Slash went to explain how he feels about his new band and band-mates:
"It's kind of a Cinderella story," he said, "I had no idea this was going to be a band I was going to do things with - I thought it was a pickup band. It turned out to be really, from the get-go, this kickass band, and now it's more like a group."
