Last night (April 11), at the fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards presented by Epiphone, SLASH and the evening’s other participants—Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp—all met up backstage at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. It was a big night for SLASH, who took home the “Riff Lord” award, presented to him by Duff McKagan. SLASH and his bandmates–Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators featuring Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums) and Todd Kerns (bass)—performed three songs: the red–hot single “You’re A Lie” from SLASH’s upcoming second solo album APOCALYPTIC LOVE (out May 22 via Dik Hayd International, distributed through EMI); plus two songs from Slash’s debut album: “Nothing To Say” and “Back to Cali.” Alice Cooper then joined SLASH and his band, tearing into the Alice classic “School’s Out.” SLASH’s headlining U.S. tour launches May 3 in Baltimore and encompasses three festival appearances: Saturday, May 5 at Carolina Rebellion, Saturday, May 19 at Rock On The Range and Friday, May 25 at Rocklahoma.
