“Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me, old pictures that I’ll always see”. Those words may have been written by his estranged former colleague Axl Rose, but they apply even more so to Slash, who from all accounts has purged his memory banks of nearly everything pertaining to Guns N’ Roses. In the time since the dissolution of ‘Old Guns’ (as Rose has retrospectively rebranded them), Slash has recorded at least six full-length studio albums, collaborated with countless artists, started a family, won a couple of Grammys, written his autobiography and starred in a computer game. Sure, there might be the occasional G n’R cover in his setlist, and journalists will continue to ask him about it for as long as he lives, but for Slash the past is the past, and there’s no point retreading old ground. Instead, he wants to forge ahead and make music for its own sake; the philosophy being that a good musician is an active one.
