Slash to appear in new Travis Barker video

Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker enlisted the help of many artists when putting together his new solo album, “Give The Drummer Some.”

For starters, Barker invited some of his favorite visual, street, tattoo and graphic artists to create individual artwork for each track on the record.

A range of musical talent got involved, from Lil’ Wayne, Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes to Tom Morello, Corey Taylor and Slash, among others.

Slash makes a guest appearance on the song "Saturday Night," teaming up with punk rock/rap supergroup The Transplants.

Slash joined Barker and the band recently to shoot a video for "Saturday Night."

Released last month, “Give The Drummer Some” debuted at #9 on the Billboard chart, selling 28,000 copies in its first week.

Barker is on the road right now opening for Lil’ Wayne on the I’m Still Music Tour, and they’ll be playing shows in Western Canada this week, including Vancouver (27), Edmonton (28) and Calgary (29).
