SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS To Perform 'Bent To Fly' On 'Conan'
February 4, 2015
SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS will perform the song "Bent To Fly" on the Thursday, February 5 episode of Conan O'Brien's nighttime talk show on TBS, "Conan". The coming-of-age song — a standout track off Slash's latest album, "World On Fire" — is already Top 20 at Active Rock. The track showcases Slash's stellar guitar-work and frontman Myles Kennedy's vocal command of both high and low ranges.
As previously reported, Slash was honored with the prestigious Les Paul Award during the 30th annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards on January 24 in Anaheim, California.
The Les Paul Award was named for the inventor and musician Lester William Polsfuss, known as Les Paul, who pioneered the solid-body electric guitar, overdubbing and delay effects that helped transform rock and roll. Previous honorees include Todd Rundgren, Peter Gabriel and Neil Young.
The NAMM Awards were created to honor people and companies across 30 categories for excellency in audio technology and production.
Slash is enjoying a vibrant solo career these days with SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS. On September 16, 2014, the band released "World On Fire", which marks Slash's third straight album to debut in the Top 10. The title track hit No. 1 on rock radio.
