Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash explained his approach to playing songs from the 2008 album Chinese Democracy, which was recorded and released while he was out of the band. The set list of their Not in This Lifetime tour has included eight of that LP’s 14 tracks, with the title number, “Better” and “This I Love” having been played most.
“It was cool,” Slash told Eddie Trunk in a wide-ranging interview. “There’s some great songs on that record, so I just sort of adapted my own way of playing them and just made them more my own so I felt more comfortable. And they just kick ass.” He described frontman Axl Rose as having been “amazing” at “every single show,” adding that it was “really cool” to watch the singer deliver performances up to three and a half hours long. He also hailed guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer, who’d joined during his absence. “All in all, it was just a great gang of people who were really excited about doing what we’re doing, and going out there and playing in front of a bunch of people who are glad we’re doing it,” he said.
