Last night (April 11), at the fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards presented by Epiphone, Slash was joined by Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp, who all met up backstage at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.
Slash took home the “Riff Lord” award, presented to him by Duff McKagan.
While former bandmate Axl Rose was penning refusal letters to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 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.”
Iconic rocker Alice Cooper then joined him 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.
