When Slash teamed up with Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge), on his 2010 solo record, it was destiny, that these guys would end up, in a band together, one day. To be honest, I have not been much of a fan, of Slash's music, post Guns N Roses. Yeah, there were a few Velvet Revolver tunes, that were okay, but for the most part, there was nothing that stood out, until his solo release. The solo release featured some of his strongest material, in years. After that CD came out, he put a band together, with Myles Kennedy, to support it, and the rest is rock n roll history.
After releasing their second CD, World on Fire, Slash and the band, decided to hold an intimate show, at the Roxy, in Hollywood, to support their latest work, which has just been released on Blu-ray, DVD, and CD. As with most Blu-rays, the picture on this thing is awesome. It gives you a sense of being in the club, that night, in the front row, but without the hassles, that can come with a live show.
I have wanted to see this band live, since the first album. I'm a huge Myles Kennedy fan, and he does not disappoint, on this Blu-ray. This guy can sing anything, and does, in this performance. He takes on the Axel Rose and Scott Weiland material, and makes it his own. The rest of the band are solid as well, and put on a great show. I have to say, I haven't seen Slash perform live, since the first G n R tour, and was thoroughly impressed with his playing, during this performance. All and all, a solid Blu-ray, which shows the band, on fire, no pun intended. Go get it!
Bottom Line: Slash and the gang in fine form. The band were on top of their game, and are proving to the masses, that this is the strongest line up that Slash has been involved with post G & R. So if you're a Guns fan, then this is a must, because this band sounds so much better, than the touring entity, that calls themselves Guns N Roses, these days.
-Ragman was more impressed by this one, than he thought he'd be. Solid live Blu-ray.
