Slash was the guitarist for Guns and Roses, which was a metal group during the late 1980s and early 1990s. He then left the group after making several albums with Guns and Roses because the lead vocalist was too difficult to work with. He made a couple of albums with a short lived hard rock group during the early 2000s called Velvet Revolver and then that music group split up and Slash started his own solo career.

I would have to say that the music Slash has made so far with his solo career is the best music he has made since he was the guitarist for Guns and Roses during Guns and Roses’ hey day.

His newest album, which came out a year ago, blew me away with how good it was. It is the best album I have heard by Slash since the Use Your illusion albums, and I might actually enjoy listening to Apocalyptic Love more because unlike Use Your Illusion, which has some weak parts, Apocalyptic Love was strong, fun hard rock from start to finish.

One of my favorite songs from the album is called Standing In the Sun. It starts off with a great, thundering guitar intro and then launches into the inspirational lyrics of the song, which are about getting up on your feet again after something has put you down and standing in the sun again.
