Nights with Alice Cooper to Feature Iconic Guitarist Slash on April 12th Broadcast
Rockers Chat About Guns N’ Roses’ April 14th Induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
New York, NY – April 12, 2012 – United Stations Radio Networks, Inc. (“USRN”) and Nights with Alice Cooper (“NWAC”) today announced that former Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash will be this evening’s interview guest on NWAC. The interview was conducted only days before GN’R frontman Axl Rose’s refusal to be inducted into the Rock Hall. 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper and Slash, who have guested on each other’s musical projects over the years, including a performance of “School’s Out” at last night’s Revolver Golden God awards, will discuss Slash’s new Apocalyptic Love CD, his upcoming film projects, and of course, this weekend’s controversial Rock Hall induction ceremony.
During the candid conversation, Slash shares his true thoughts about the meaning of his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, and discusses his feelings about GN’R playing live—or not—at this weekend’s ceremony. The ex GN’R guitarist also touches on what makes ex-Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy different than Axl Rose and Scott Weiland, Slash’s former bandmates. The Slash and Alice dialogue can be heard on Alice’s over 100 global affiliates, a list of which is available here: http://zipcode.nightswithalicecooper.com/affiliates.asp.
