Guns N’ Roses Guitarist Slash Releases New Music Video
Ahead of Slash’s South America tour with the Conspirators he dropped a video for the song “Boulevard of Broken Hearts” from his latest record with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. It’s a live video of the song. The video features both backstage and onstage footage of the band’s gig at the Eventim Apollo from London, England. Check it out below!
Describing the evolution and story behind the song Slash said the following to Loudwire
‘Boulevard of Broken Hearts’ was the last song I came up with and brought to the band,” explains Slash. ‘It was another idea I had where I wasn’t sure the other guys were going to get where I was coming from. But the chorus was done in such a way that I’d knew they’d get that part of it, and from there all we’d have to do is figure out the verses and the other sections. It actually came together really quickly, and after Myles heard it, he had a vocal melody almost instantaneously,” stated Slash.
“It’s a newer one, for sure. Lyrically, it’s about having this awareness that you’re really close to obtaining your goals, as well as beating the odds,” added Kennedy. “I thought about it from the perspective of a young musician striving for something, only the doors keep closing on him. But he’s already come so far. So, it’s a reminder to stay on course because you’re almost there. It seemed like a good idea to end the record on. Keep pushing through and persevering, and eventually what you’re shooting for will happen.”
