The Legendary guitarist Slash will be rocking Malaysia once again on February 14th, 2015 at Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach! Slash had a gig here in Malaysia with Myles Kennedy not long ago at the exact same venue, and I’m pretty sure this gig will be as good as the one before.
The 49 year-old former Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist will be touring with his band Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators in support of his new album WORLD ON FIRE. Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators will be performing in Kuala Lumpur at Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach on 14th February 2015 and it is expected to be mad wild. We had a great timerocking to Slash and Myles the last time they were here. Let’s hope this time round the local organisers can do a better job with the zoning and crowd control.

Slash, the former Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist rocked Sunway and his fans last night with what I consider as the greatest hard rock concert in Kuala Lumpur for the year 2010. Lucky me, I’ve got a VIP ticket courtesy of my elder brother.
I must say, this concert brings back some memories as swarms of ‘old school rockers’ put up a long queue into the vicinity of Sunway Lagoon. A totally different crowd from MTV World Stage because these fans are passionate hard rock lovers as compared to the MTV concert last weekend.
The 45-year-old guitar legend, together with his friends jammed a number of songs from his newly launched self-titled solo album, Slash with Myles Kennedy as lead vocalist. Myles Kennedy is the co-lead guitarist for the hard rock band Alter Bridge and he is pure awesomeness. He pulls off a pretty good vocal singing Sweet Child O’ Mine, although I still prefer it to be Axl Rose, but nevertheless he still managed to attract the crowd to sing along. Check out the video below as the crowd rock out with Slash and Myles… it’s orgasmic!
Slash and Myles also performed a couple more songs from GNR’s original tracks such as Paradise City and Civil War. The crowd was in total trance headbanging to the heavy beat of the drum and screeching guitar tunes of Paradise City. I haven’t had such good experience since God knows when. Gosh…how I miss rock concerts.
Although I enjoyed myself at the concert, I was also put off by the bad event organising by the organizer. There isn’t any proper signage of how to get to which part of the are and the crowd control crew is all bullshit. I’ve got friends having PS1 & 2 tickets who made it into the VIP zone. So what’s up with that, Mr. Event Organizer? You guys suck!
Nevertheless, Koay Ling, Dennis and myself had an enjoyable time rocking to Slash and Myles (not the event organising). We’ll be looking forward to more rock concerts in near future and hopefully there will be more hard rock concerts in Kuala Lumpur this year.
According to Wikipedia…
Saul Hudson (born 23 July 1965), better known by his stage name Slash, is a British-born American musician. He is the former lead guitarist of the American hard rock band Guns N’ Roses, with whom he performed and recorded between 1985 and 1996. He later formed Slash’s Snakepit and co-founded Velvet Revolver with his former bandmates Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, and his debut solo album, Slash, was released in April 2010.
Slash has received critical recognition as a guitarist. In August 2009, Time Magazine ranked him #2 on its list of the “10 Best Electric Guitar Players of All-Time”. He was also ranked #21 on Gigwise’s list of the “50 Greatest Guitarists Ever”.
According to Galvin Tan…
Slash is a living legend. He is the former lead guitarist of the rock band Gun N’ Roses and the song that got me hook to him during Guns N’ Roses days is no other than Sweet Child O’ Mine.
I’m not gonna tell you more about his life, you can read it up yourself on Wiki. However, I’m gonna share with you some video clips of Slash in action during the glory Guns N’ Roses days.
My favourite song from Guns N’ Roses is Sweet Child O’ Mine. Its also the song that got me hook to GNR and made me a fan. The next song you should listen to is Paradise City, also from GNR.
In March 2010, Slash embarks on a self-titled solo album, Slash and he will be performing live in Malaysia on August 5, 2010.
