Slash Working On Solo Album

Slash is working all out on completing his first solo album.

The Velvet Revolver guitarist said he is making use of the downtime while the band search for a new vocalist to really go to town on the project.

"I'm working on it pretty aggressively right now while I have the time 'cause as soon as Velvet finds its singer then it's going to be off the races with that," he said.

Velvet Revolver are of course singer-free after the controversial departure of frontman Scott Weiland in May.

"I'm using this little period to be able to do as much on my solo record as possible," said the Slash-meister. "I'm not sure exactly when it will come out, but hopefully it will come out before the [next] Velvet record."

"It'll be my first solo record," he continued. All the other ones were just me putting other bands together and going out and just jamming. This will actually be a little bit more personal."
