Slash is releasing a new album. “4,” featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, will be out on February 11, 2022.
In a new interview, Slash discussed making the record and revealed he and the band got Covid during the process.
“We took a tour bus to Nashville to keep ourselves safe, to get there and not travel commercially. And then we went and recorded the whole record, and then I got a phone call from Myles in the studio when I was about to do overdubs, and he goes, ‘Man, I tested positive.’ And subsequently, two of the other guys tested positive, so they all had to go into quarantine. And we still had to do percussion and background vocals, and so we sort of stalled. So we mixed what we had, which was a lot. And then we recorded the background vocals in the guest house of the house that we were all quarantined in. And then those guys got better. I tested positive finally. And so I had to quarantine. But I just got vaccinated, so I only had to quarantine for a few days. And so I came out, and then we did the percussion and mixed [the rest of] the record and drove home.”
Is Covid still messing up your life or do you feel back to “normal?”
