“Guitar shopping can be dangerous!” So says Slash, who joined us for a recent shopping trip to Norman’s Rare Guitars in Tarzana, California. (You’ll be happy to know he actually bought something, by the way!) 

While we’re at it, we find out every last detail about 4, Slash’s new album with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. It turns out the album is a lean, mean, live-in-the-studio affair. And not just any studio! It was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A (“the old Chet Atkins studio,” Slash says).
