SLASH Endorses BARACK OBAMA For President

According to The Pulse of Radio, VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash expressed his support for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama in a new interview with England's NME Radio. Slash remarked, "I think Obama's great. It's the first time in eight years (since George W. Bush came into power) I've heard somebody speak English. I think it's refreshing to see someone who's reasonably intelligent come in. I agree with a lot of (Obama's) stuff. There are a couple of things I'm concerned with, but all things considered I think he's the best candidate for the job."

Slash also talked about the progress of his new solo album, saying he's got demos recorded of 14 songs. He plans to enlist a number of different singers to appear on the CD, although he has not yet revealed any names.

VELVET REVOLVER is still looking for a new vocalist to replace Scott Weiland before beginning work on its third studio effort. Slash said he wasn't sure if his album would arrive before the next VELVET REVOLVER disc.

Slash will also release a series of new guitars, the Gibson and Epiphone Les Paul Goldtop range, on October 7.
