Legendary Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash will be back in Singapore to stage a concert with singer Myles Kennedy and their band The Conspirators at The Coliseum on Tuesday (Jan 8).

In a recent interview with Straits Times from Singapore, Slash talked about the state of rock music in recent years.

“As far as rock n roll is concerned, it’s sort of struggling over these past ten years.

I think rock music has been going through a lot of ebbs and flows. Since, say, the middle of the millennium, it’s been pretty quiet. You have a couple great artists that come out here and there, but there’s not, like, a big movement where you’ve got a ton of new music, all very inspiring.

“I do definitely feel like there’s a renaissance coming, like a rock n roll revolution with all these kids that are doing it right now. There’s definitely an energy there so I’m excited to see where it’s going to be in the next few years.”

On Myles Kennedy, he said:

“He has a very natural ability. He doesn’t try to be something that he’s not, which, in this day and age, is very hard to find somebody who’s not trying to sing like somebody else or trying to force a square peg through a round hole stylistically with their capabilities.”
