Todd ‘Dammit’ Kerns from Slash’s band the Conspirators was recently interviewed by Talking Metal Podcast where he discussed his career, a new possible album with the Conspirators, seeing Guns N’ Roses on the Not In This Lifetime tour and playing with Dizzy Reed! I’ve summarized the interview as it related to Guns N’ Roses below!
- Todd said he is in constant contact with Slash and the other guys from the Conspirators. Todd feels that the band will reconvene when the time is right. He didn’t go any further into when we could expect a new album.
- Todd said to see Guns N’ Roses reform from such a close vantage point being in Slash’s world is awesome.
- Todd said he never saw Guns N’ Roses live before the Not In This Lifetime Tour since he always had gigs the same nights Guns N’ Roses were playing.
- Todd said Slash wisely chose to go back to Guns N’ Roses and do it for the fans. He called Guns N’ Roses one of the last great reunions that’s going to happen. He thought the door might be open for Steven Adler and Izzy Stradlin to rejoin. He is not privy to any inside info he said.
- Todd has seen Guns N’ Roses on the Not In This Lifetime Tour 4 or 5 times.
- Todd said he’s known Dizzy Reed for years and played with him long before he joined the Conspirators. He said he’s sure he’ll be doing more stuff with Dizzy Reed’s band Hookers & Blow.
- Todd talked about playing with comedian Bill Murray for a benefit show where Slash was a guest as well as Sammy Hagar, Kip Winger, Alice Cooper, Matt Sorum and Billy Duffy. Bill Murray showed up and basically hosted the whole night. He said Bill Murray was a really cool guy and Todd said he’s a massive fan.
