Slash has scored his first-ever Number One hit at rock radio as a solo artist with "You're A Lie," the first single from his second solo effort, Apocalyptic Love. The record came out on May 22nd and debuted at Number Four on the Billboard album chart a week later, selling 38,000 copies in its first week of release.Unlike Slash's solo debut, which featured different vocalists on each track and a number of guest musicians, Slash has recorded all of the new CD with his touring band, Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators. Slash co-wrote all the material with singer Myles Kennedy and told us that they never struggled to find a groove together: "There was never any kind of like, 'OK, we need to sit down and focus on writing.' Just whenever ideas happened, I would just lay them down, and if I thought it was good enough to send to him, then I'd send it to him. And he miraculously would come up with melodies for everything I came up with, and it just happened like that." Slash and his band recently completed a month-long tour of Europe and will start a new North American run on July 12th in Portland, Oregon.Two days earlier, on July 10th, Slash will be honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
