In September 2008, Slash began production on his debut solo album.
He described the process of recording by himself as “cathartic.” He also mentioned working on the album gave him a chance to “…take a little bit of a break from all the politics and the democracy that is a band and just sort of do my own thing for a little bit. Slash’s wife Perla revealed that many different artists would appear on the album, saying, “It’s going to be Slash and friends, with everyone from Ozzy to Fergie.”
The album also features musical collaborations with former Guns N’ Roses members Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler and Duff McKagan. Preceding the release of the album, Slash had released the Japan-only single “Sahara”, featuring Japanese vocalist Koshi Inaba (from B’z). It charted at number four on the Oricon Singles Chart, as well number six on the Billboard Japan Hot 100.
To promote the album, Slash embarked on his first solo world tour with Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge—who also appeared on the album—on vocals, Bobby Schneck on rhythm guitar, Todd Kerns on bass, and Brent Fitz on drums. Slash opened for Ozzy Osbourne for a leg of Osbourne’s Scream World Tour.
Slash began working on his second solo album in June 2011. He collaborated with his touring bandmates Myles Kennedy, Todd Kerns, and Brent Fitz, with the resulting album billed to “Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators”.
The album, titled Apocalyptic Love, was released on May 22, 2012, debuting at #2 on the Canadian Albums Chart.
In the beginning of 2013 Slash received award for “Best Guitarist Of The Year 2012” by Loudwire’s readers.
In May 2014, Slash revealed details of his third solo album World on Fire. The album was again billed as “Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators” and was released on September 10, 2014.
In March 2018, Slash revealed that a new album with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators was to be released later in the year. In June 2018, he announced that the album was titled Living the Dream, to be released on September 21, 2018.
