Slash Discusses Making the ‘Driving Rain’ Music Video
Guns N’ Roses Guitarist gave a radio interview recently where he talked about a variety of subjects including Guns N’ Roses, his new record ‘Living the Dream’ and how they created the video for his single ‘Driving Rain’. It’s at the beginning of the interview below. Slash reveals they worked with a company called Stoopid Buddy whose worked on the TV Show ‘Robot Chicken’ and a number of Super Bowl commercials.
Slash’s new single ‘Driving Rain’ from his latest album ‘Living the Dream’ has moved up another two spots on the billboard charts this week. Last week it was at number 9 and for several weeks before that it was stuck at number 12. The song was probably helped by the fact that ‘Living the Dream’ released last week. To date, ‘Driving Rain’ is the fastest and highest charting single in Slash’s solo career! We’ll keep tracking the song in the coming weeks!
As Slash told Blabbermouth, they began writing material during the World on Fire tour with Slash bringing new riffs and musical ideas to the band during soundchecks, at which point the Conspirators would expand on them, with vocalist Kennedy singing ideas into his phone. The original plan was to get back to work on the new album after taking time off following the 18-month jaunt. Then Guns N’ Roses came calling back, and that occupied his time for the next two-and-a-half years.
