Slash posted the following on his blog tonight:
Hey, how is everybody? Things are ramping up towards the release of my solo record, there’s a lot of cool shit going on. But, more importantly, there is the George Lopez’s “Help Haiti Benefit” show at the Nokia Theater tomorrow night. I am performing a couple songs with Beth Hart. Who, if you are not familiar with her is a 1st rate blues/R&R singer/song writer. But go to click here for the list of special guests & click here to get tickets. Raising cash for devastated Haiti has to be at the forefront of everybody’s minds right now & will need to be for some time so we can help them rebuild.
On another note, Ernie Ball, Guitar Center & I have a couple new campaigns, the details of which are at ernieball.com & yournextrecord.com. I’m really into the idea of inspiring young guitar players & discovering new talented R&R bands & unleashing them unto the world. Up & coming Rock & Roll talent is getting largely overlooked in the business these days & I want to change that.
Also, I want to announce that Myles Kennedy is going to be fronting the band for the upcoming tour. Something I’m really stoked about. Myles sang a killer track on the record & I think he is by far one of the best Rock & Roll singers out there today. I’m really honored & proud to be working with him. I will announce the other band members shortly.
Lastly, we’re starting to route the tour. I want all my fans to follow me on Twitter & tell me what city/country they’re from & to tell all their friends & family in that city/country, who are fans, to do the same. I want to get a really good idea on where my fans are, even the obvious major cities & focus the tour around that. So if you’re from Alaska or Zimbabwe or anywhere in between I want to hear from you.

That’s it, I’m excited about the new record & about the band I’m putting together for the tour. I’ve been jamming around town with everybody & their brother for the last year & I can’t wait to get out & do my own show finally. It’s going to be a gas. See you soon, Slash iiii|; ),
