VIDEO: Slash reveals first inspiration to play guitar

Slash reveals his first inspiration to play guitar in a new video interview with the Guitar Center.

The rocker also talks about his musical beginnings and the recording process on his solo albums, as he gears up to release “World On Fire” on September 16.

The follow-up to 2012’s “Apocalyptic Love” once again sees Slash working with his touring band, Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, and producer Michael Baskette.

The group is currently on the road across North America with Aerosmith as part of the Let Rock Rule tour, which wraps up September 9 in Clarkston, Michigan.

Slash will then help mark the Guitar Center’s 50th anniversary with a series of three concerts in Hollywood’s most legendary venues this fall.

The guitarist will play shows at The Troubadour (Sep 23), The Roxy (Sep 25) and The Whisky (Sep 26).

“I’ve always admired Guitar Center’s commitment to artists,” says Slash. “They’re constantly creating new avenues for musicians to get their music out to fans and inspiring people to pick up an instrument and play. They’ve also been supportive of my career since the very beginning here on the Sunset Strip. I am happy to be a part of their 50th celebration.”
