Slash revealed that while recording his upcoming album with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, they all contracted covid, according to Blabbermouth.
Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators will release their latest album, titled 4, on February 11th. The album, which is the band's first on the Gibson Records imprint, features the just-released first single, “The River Is Rising,” and marks the collective's first studio set since 2018's Living The Dream. In addition to Slash and Kennedy the band includes Brent Fitz on drums, Todd Kerns on bass, and Frank Sidoris on guitar.
While chatting with Germany's Radio Regenbogen, Slash gave the backstory on the sessions: “The funniest story about this record was the covid story, because we took a tour bus to Nashville to keep ourselves safe — to get there and not travel commercially. And then we went and recorded the whole record, and then I got a phone call from Myles in the studio when I was about to do overdubs, and he goes, 'Man, I tested positive.' And subsequently, two of the other guys tested positive, so they all had to go into quarantine. And we still had to do percussion and background vocals, and so we sort of stalled.”
