Slash blasts UK rock stars
Slash reckons UK music is "tame, predicable and faceless".
The legendary Guns 'N' Roses guitarist admitted he is "down on music in general right now" and said that the UK is lacking any bona fide rock legends in the making.
When asked if he feels the UK should have more rock stars on Wednesday (24.02.10), he said: "It's lacking there. I mean you've got the Gallagher brothers but they've been around forever. It's gotten sort of tame predicable and faceless."
He did, however, add he didn't want to single the UK out, and that music across the world is undergoing a hard time, though he remains positive it will soon pass.
He added to Absolute Radio: "I guess lady Gaga has turned into a big personality. But we're at a dead zone in music right now. We go through this every decade. It's the beginning of a new decade, so I think things will get cool from here."
Slash releases his self titled debut album in Japan in March, in the US in April and in Europe in May. His first single from the album, 'By The Sword' will be released in Europe on March 1.Posted on 26 Feb 2010 07:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
