Slash was asked by The Project what keeps him going and whether there’s “any other appeal” apart from doing live shows. Take a look:

The Guns N’ Roses guitarist replied:

“I mean, no. It’s all about the music. The only reason I make records is so I can go out and tour.

“Because as a guitar player, I love playing guitar – I don’t love being in the studio, I don’t love sitting around my house playing the guitar – I like playing live.

“So I dig that, but I’m sort of rare, there’s not too many people that have been doing this as long as I have, who actually enjoy it as much as I do.”

During the rest of the interview, Slash talked about the early days of his collaboration with singer Myles Kennedy, saying:

“I’d been hearing Myles‘ name. He is the one guy that when I was doing Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver, and Snakepit – stuff from my whole catalog – he was the only person I could think of who had the diversity and range to do all that material.”
